Atlas de Teoría(s) de la Arquitectura

Atlas of Theory(s) of Architecture is a visual sample of different ways of seeing the art of building. It is an exhibition in the plural, since there is no single way of conceiving what architecture is, how it is done and how it should be understood. Architecture, like any discipline, develops its theory in words; but, together, it is capable […]

The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture | Miquel Lacasta

In the first work of Formal Eisenman The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture, his doctoral thesis, begins as there began Jacobs in The Rise and Fall of Great American Cities, or Venturi in Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, with a critique to the Modern Movement. It can be said that the alternative pressure of the decade of the 60, they need of any […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

“I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the unidirectional criterion […]

Architecture and ecosystem logic | Miquel Lacasta

We might think that the mimetic model of the architecture with the nature does not have today any force or that it is not pertinent to think the architecture. We might say that the scientific advances and all his formulations have scanty links with the occupation of an architect and that far from occupying a central space in the reflection […]

Lebbeus Woods’s alternative world | Marcelo Gardinetti

During his professional life, Lebbeus Woods sketched thoughts. The images that it produced incorporate observations of an improbable future. It moves on suggestive ideas that are not submitted to the rules of the company. On the contrary, it questions them. His representations, inhabitants of an inhospitable territory, personify his singular ontology. Floating structures and mobile constructions that compose a statement […]

The victory of the cynicism | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The advertising success was perfectly predictabl1, one would speak about the matter, the book would be bought, but León of Gold? Yes, in effect they received a major prize. That definitively stops very well proven get out of focus joined the superficialness of those who direct the creation of prestiges in the world of the architecture. And also in the world […]

Sciences of the complexity: A common logic with the architecture | axonometrica

Apart from the origin or the cultural common substratum, the sciences of the complexity share certain common features with the architecture that arises in the decade of the 60s and that we can follow even today, that reinforce precisely this both cultural and social base. Briefly we might say that the sciences of the complexity and the theoretical reflections and […]

Thinking the architecture (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Article continuation of “Thinking the architecture (I)”. It is necessary to clear what can understand by ideology, a word that is used to  apply only to the politics and produces doubts applied to other human activities. I take this definition: “An ideology is the group of ideas that inciden in elder or lower degree in the characteristics of the practice […]

From the complex thing. Symbol and Behavior | Miquel Lacasta

From the complex thing. Symbol and Behavior. Annotatting the reflections it brings over of the complexity, they are necessary two categories that they send to the idea of the intersubjective thing. In many of the previous texts and surely in future texts, the intersubjective thing is present of underlying form. The idea of intersubjectivity divides of stating the mistake 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 […]

The space of the absence | Marcelo Gardinetti

The critical position that some architects adopted in the last decades of the 20th century to attack the historicist character of the postmodern architecture, was sustained by a theoretical complex reasoning that was represented of multidisciplinary concepts arisen from the posestructuralismo, principally from Jacques Derrida’s texts. These architectural reflections investigate the definition of the physical space by means of a […]

Towards a new contextuality | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

One of the possible origins of a certain revival contextualista might relapse, as affirms Eduard Bru, in the fact that the place1 has happened to be more interesting something, more active and propositivo, while city and geography, they have been mixed ineluctablemente, offering an environment much more inciting than the strictly urban one which we were having a decade behind.2 […]

From the constructive thing like theory | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

From the constructive thing like theory The reality is always an organization, or complex configuration, which is constituted constant. This way raised, this affirmation stops to guess a beginning of very simple bottom: the fact that something is constructed constant it does not make it less royal, independently of which they are the pieces that integrate this construction. The fact […]
