The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

From the paradigm of the complexity | axonometrica

If we assume easily for that the architecture always his boss, his model has looked in the nature to continuing, when not to imitating, and that historically always there has been one symbiosis between the natural thing and the architectural thing, we will agree that a substantial change in the conception of the nature, he will carry necessarily a substantial […]

Klaus: Architecture, cómic and critique (II)

Retomamos la charla que comenzamos hace unos días con Klaus, esperamos que disfruten tanto como lo hemos hecho nosotros. De todos modos, al margen de lo humorístico, en muchas de ellas reflexionas sobre diferentes temas, ¿podríamos decir que realizas crítica de arquitectura? Lo malo de la polisemia es que no te deja más opción que contestar a todo que sí. […]

The errant parish | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

The camp demands opened field, contingency and movement. His fragility, lightness and horizontal condition, has spread out of analogous form so much in the military campaign as the vacation accession, both in the emergency and in the fair or the circus. The camp fascinates for his capacity of nomadism and his ephemeral vocation of alteration of the landscape: it fascinates […]

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 […]

Rural architecture | Íñigo García Odiaga

There exists the widespread idea of which the contemporary this architecture tied inevitably to the urban thing and therefore to the density of the great city. Nevertheless in territories or companies of life intimately tied to the field, the landscape or definitively the nature, the modern architecture has made way for itself in the rural environment. The rules are different, […]

The city is of all

“If the proclamation of which the city must be for all turns out to be necessary it is because one forgets often the last justification of our trade: that the architecture is not but the manifestation of a knowledge that has to be solidary and generous. Paulo Mendes da Rocha’s work is intense and risky, both for his materiality and […]
