In Juan Daniel Fullaondo´s Class room (I) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Juan Daniel Fullaondo Errazu was born in Bilbao on 4 March 1936 and died in Madrid on 26 June 1994, Sunday, with fifty-eight years of age. This day I had gone out in the tele in the morning, and when my fellow Juan Carlos Castillo Ochandiano called me by telephone thought that was to congratulate me thus and kid a bit […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (XI) | Cristina García-Rosales

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (X) | Cristina García-Rosales I have tried to discover a few arquitectas and designers not known for the great public, who maybe design with another look, placing the human being in the center of his projects, that is to say, to the user. The debate is opened. And to end I […]

Luigi Comencini. Architects and Filmmakers | Jorge Gorostiza

In previous income I have been gathering opinions about architecture of the diverse directors like Woody Allen, John Ford, Ingmar Bergman, Valerian Borowczyk, René Clair, Dziga Vertov, Peter Greenaway, Abbas Kiarostami, Raúl Ruiz, the actress Viola Dana, the essayist Sigfried Giedion. In case of the director Amos Gitai, his movie profession was coinciding with that of architect, the same thing […]

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

The dodo bird. Fehn and his drawings of line. Fragile, synthetic and cryptic. Drawings that are almost at all. Exiguous outlines in which it fits the entire world. Cosmogonophy of horizons and ships, of the Suns and lunas, always of men. Fehn and his architecture of elongated shades. The young person northern prodigy of Brussels, Venice and Hamar. Then, the […]

Slowness | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Slowness The architecture always has been an old man’s profession, a labor that demands the implication of an enormous quantity of time in order that an architect could be considered in condition of maturity. We all those that we recognize ourselves in the profession, agree that there are neither short-cuts nor ways of in way. The architecture is done to […]

Molezún’s motorcycle | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have been in the exhibition about “Photography and modern architecture in Spain, 1925-1965” of the ICO Foundation inde Madrid and have felt a heap of opposing sensations. (It is that I am a writer, and the writers we say it of ” opposing sensations “, and more things). Several confused ideas: viejuna that is remaining the modern architecture, it […]

Gunnar Asplund and his nemesis. Fights of roosters Gunnar was the hinge between the chill Swedish classicism and the winds that were blowing of the south. A refined and visionary teacher. In 1915, while Europe was drained, he conceived the most beautiful contemporary cemetery. But Gunnar was not alone. To his side there was a muffled shade, it avoids even […]

Bird marinades They all resemble Jørn Utzon as a high man. But actually it it was not. Utzon seemed to be extraodinary because it lived on a platform, as that it had seen in Mexico or in Japan in his youth; and from her it looked behind and forward. It recognized oriental temples and Mayan constructions; he remembered the models […]

Housing in Barceloneta | Aldo G. Facho Dede

I knew Coderch with this building, it was for finishing the career and an architect friend me “presented” it in a book that I could not have obtained. It impressed me for the complexity of the plant that in the first look is opposed to the clarity of the fronts. I it re-drew several times and tried to take her […]

Of clouds and black boxes | Marcelo Gardinetti

Even considering the scanty commitment of the new ismos with regard to the ideology of normalization and production in series promoted by the teachers of the Modern Movement, the fact that more difference generates with that period is the indetermination of the form that there assume the buildings designed by the most popularized actors of the current production. The concept […]

Necrotectónicas. Architects’ deaths

The love for the architecture makes many people venerate his authors, want to know more of his lives and, sigh, of his deaths. It seems as if this way we were capable of understanding them better and of valuing more his works, which are, definitively, the only ones that matter. These deaths of the biggest architects them go down the […]

Drawing the nature | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

Of many infamies that the architects we promote often, the fact of drawing the nature constitutes, probably, the most beautiful. In our planes there turn out to be represented somehow trees and plants, rivers and seas, oceans devoid of the sky blue one of the maps. But perhaps is it possible to condense the tides or the landscapes in a […]

The cuckold Born in the chill Baltic one and with the slightly bad face of smallpox, his history could have been sad as that of that Akákievich from Gógol. But Kahn decided to live through two lives. Two simultaneous lives, with two women, with two families. As the pretty bird, it overflew other skies to look for other nests. Two […]

The parable of the Englishman | Borja López Cotelo

I remember my brief stay in the St. James College, in Maypole Green, Essex. In the evenings of rain, to chop of the drops against the sill was sounding as the second-hand of a clock that seemed to go increasingly slowly, while a green and gray landscape was filtering across the ogival window. I, often, was losing the time searching […]

Liquid mass | Íñigo García Odiaga

Though it could look like a terrible contradiction, already from the 50s, architects like Michael Fisac have experimented with the liquid properties of the concrete. A like cement mass that acquires a stony condition after his plotted one, but that in origin is a fluid that allows to treat it as an effective form. The concrete therefore adopts the form […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (VII) | Cristina García-Rosales Now Lina Bo Bardi wanted to have a brief recollection for the italo-Brazilian arquitecta. Well it can be said that, together with Eileen Gray, it shaped the feminine side of the modernity. Lina was born in Rome in 1914 and died in Sao Paulo in 1992. He […]

Franky the Kid Frank grew in a farm of Wisconsin. It was before working with L. H. Sullivan in Chicago. Maybe the city seemed to the farmer to be too artificial and decided then to dismember the architecture, to preface the housings in extraodinary projecting beyond his walls and to dilute them in the nature. It was called them Prairie […]

This arquitecta specialized herself in the […]

The crystallized horror

Hamlet. Don Quijote. Faust they die at the end of the representation. Also the Pavilion of Germany is dressed, at the same time scene and actor of a representation, necessarily, piece to piece. Because from his beginnings, the modern project has found in the decomposition of the form – of the individual, of the values – a paradoxical refuge, good […]

The night bird Many Alvar Aalto’s things have been said. That was racionalist, that was organicista, that fought for the independence of Finland in 1917. That he liked the wine, the night and the young women. Maybe they all are true. It would explain Viipuri, Paimio, the Mairea, Otaniemi, Säynätsalo, his circles and his two marriages. Always I remember that […]

Cyprien Gaillard | Pedro Hernández

Entre vandalisme et esthétique minimale, romantisme et Land Art. Cyprien Gaillard représente l’architecture contemporaine comme une ruine moderne sur le point d’être envahie par la nature, tel que le faisait le peintre ruiniste Hubert Robert avec le Louvre au XVIIIème siècle. Text route Gaillard plays with the vision of the architecture, seemingly consumed by the nature, so that this one […]
