Óscar Niemeyer | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I overcome the fence that the political reality us stretches every day to all and decide to speak1 of Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012) whose longevity stopped in December, 2012. Already once I wrote that it had had the privilege of conversing with him in his study of the Atlantic Avenue opposite to Copacabana in 1994. We speak about his Brief of […]

Do you know Louis Kahn’s work? | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I know that the facts will be revealing the immense lie through that we live here. And without stopping being alert I insist on going beyond her. I take so again, the topic of my visit to the Bauhaus Universität in Weimar, Germany, remembering on what already I commented it brings over of my desire to explain of what way […]

Aldo Rossi’s lesson | José Ramón Hernández Correa

At the end of the seventies until middle of the eighties of the century twenty (I joust the period in which I studied architecture in the ETSAM), the Modern Movement was already criticized without mufflers. In the school one was speaking about the modern ones and, in general, still one was admiring them, but already the reverential respect had got […]

Louis Kahn’s words | Oscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I remember a conversation with Louis I. Kahn (1902-1974) in his office, 45 years ago. I took notes in a notebook that I preserve and in which the teacher planned a few minuscule sketches that I hoard. Did I mention that Kahn had a way of expressing very particularly? It was doing in certain way linguistic philosophy, was exploring the […]

Albi’s lasting testimony | Oscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Whenever it saw the drawings of Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) the great architect Estonian – American, were called me always the attention those of Albi’s Cathedral, with his buttresses planned with ascending spirals. They were indicating all the interest it put Kahn in this building of the 13th century, interest that I see now expressed in words, on me having […]

Architecture-Art (III) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Any work of art, it does not import his major or minor relative value, aspires to be kept intact across the time in wait to be a sight, reading, executed, represented. And precisely because of it, to preserve them and to protect them from the step of the years is for what the Museums and the Libraries exist. But with […]

Architecture-Art (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

He was saying last week that the architecture rides between the utilitarian thing and the poetical thing and that this condition that could call hybrid does that to qualify of artist an architect for the fact of it being turns out to be strange, in spite of that to any writer, poet, musician or painter, bad or mediocre, gives himself […]

The best notary … | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Finland, this country that suggests us efficiency, solvency, education, high standard of living and a heap of good things, has the the highest “general level” in his population, but it does not have too many brilliant prominent figures in his history. (They are not many inhabitants either they do not even have a lot of time). This way, to prompt […]

Architecture-Art (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It seems to be completely unnecessary to wonder today if the Architecture is or not an Art, question that was very present in the sixties immediately after the effort of the Marxist sectors to insist on his utilitarian condition qualifying the “artistic” vision as a nineteenth-century diversion. Because already today all the big museums of contemporary art have very active […]

The shipwreck | Sergio de Miguel

“L´Architecttura, in quanto arte, è fenomeno felice, rarissimo e personale.” Adalberto Libera 1. As it want to that we look seeing what others saw a lot before that we and that walk stepping the stepped of others, could not by less than sobresaltarme when contemplating the surprising figure, found by chance in a recóndita Mediterranean coast, of a wonderful sailboat […]

A Finn in El Escorial (and II) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Alvar Aalto already had been in the bulls. In Barcelona they had taken the Monumental one to him, and one had spent it very well. Because of it the persons from Madrid thought that already it did not have very much felt to take him to The Sales. This aim already was covered. Actually the Finn did not seem to […]

Intimate territories | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

The excellent cartography of the territory of the intimacy, draws it undoubtedly, the housing, that is to say, the space in which we develop our domestic life, is the only programmatical structure of the architecture, in which we go on from the public and social condition to the private and subjective, closed and intimate condition. In the housing we can […]

Spatial construction | Íñigo García Odiaga

If it was trying to summarize in a word which is the last end of the architecture, from an academic point of view, the agreement would be impossible, but no doubt, one of the words with major consensus would be the term space. The space, the construction of an interior isolated of the environment, can be understood as the first […]

The first Le Corbusier | Sergio de Miguel

The path of the first years of Him Corbusier like architect, in the first decades of the 20th century, was devoted almost with exclusividad to the investigation around the subject of the house and characterised  for being plagada of researches and findings, of inventions and redesigns, that had a big importance no only in his back architecture but, besides, in […]

The architect Curro Inza | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Francisco de Inza was born in Madrid in 1929 and died in Brick in 1976, with forty seven years newly fulfilled. He was a project teacher in the school of Navarre, and in his pupils and companions it left an indelible fingerprint, but, the truth, in the rest of Spain his recollection lasted little. (I began the career of architecture […]

Lost occasions | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Last month, the companion Joan Carles Sánchez, as consequence of a few comments that we did in twitter on the humility and the simplicity of treatment of the big teachers, suggested me to dedicate an entry of this blog to Alejandro de la Sota; not so much to expose an academic speech as to count my personal experiences with the genius. So […]

Do not be what | José Ramón Hernández Correa

On Saturday, the 23rd of February the magnificent program Documents, of RNE, was dedicated to Miguel Fisac: “Miguel Fisac’s architecture: Concrete of meat and bone”. The good architecture ends up by triumphing, and Fisac, which was in the comb of the wave from the beginning of his professional career until the sixties, and that in the seventies suffered an unjust […]

Domesticating the mountain | Íñigo García Odiaga

The autumn is maybe the epoch of the year the most related to the mountain, before the winter when it begins the intense cold and the forests show an unsurpassable image. A type of architecture that is tied intimately to this activity, that of the refuge of mountain. The architects who investigated the minimal working housing, and the solutions standardized […]

Unleashed Oíza | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oíza was a genius. Yes, a genius. In all the meanings of the word, even in her of “having very much genius”. Always he was saying ingenious, creative, stimulant things. It was impossible to know what fertile associations of ideas it was going to do, and it was doing his exciting speech. Unless you him were […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (X) | epR

Jose Antonio Coderch de Sentmenat, catalan aristocrat, captain Scott de la España of postwar period. Probably it was late, or too soon. Maybe in another place it would have obtained a major recognition, but in the current Catalonia it has been relegated to the garret of the inconvinient forbears. His first sketch of the house Ugalde costs more than five […]

It is difficult to me to write very much this entry, because, though I was in the first row and I did not get lost detail, I did not stop understanding everything what happened.

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (IX) | epR

Don Alejandro was giving hares whom he was asking for cats. Jack, the architect, constructed classrooms that were floating on a gymnasium, emptied the front of a civil government, suspended glassy viewing-points on a street dressed in stone. Sota, the draftsman, scribbled buildings and faces with fragile, scanty, agonizing lines. Sota, the teacher, Galician and teimado, declined to tread on […]

Modern architecture without modern movement | Aldo G. Facho Dede

Modern architecture without modern movement. The case of Peru. Talking with the architect Ricardo Cárdenas I gave form to the concept of which in Peru the Modern Architecture developed without Modern Movement. This sounds of the first reading less incoherent, how is it possible to detach the architecture of the movement that gives him sustenance?, in the lines that later […]

Readings in the common thing | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Readings in the common thing The architecture arises from a form of shared knowledge that goes beyond the architectural object. Likewise the city, it can be understood as the area of relations between architectures, individuals and natures. The whole knowledge accumulated on these triangular relations, of the building to the individual, of the individual to the nature and of the […]
