VAD 02. Call for Papers. The prototypes

5.0 02 Si en el primer número de VAD. veredes, arquitectura y divulgación se descansaba la mirada en “los inicios”, en aquellos comienzos y principios que proporcionan de manera tangible o simbólica lo que desea existir, ahora se quiere explorar con amplitud los parámetros pertenecientes a los orígenes.

Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 02 Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture.1  We are installed in a time disgregado, opened to multiple interpretations of the reality. We advance helter-skelter between infinite clouds of information banalizada and by excess and exuberance, are unable to detect the limits, the solapamientos, the densities and the specific weights of the real. We live in an […]

The car house | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 Between 1934 and 1935 Mies van der Rohe developed the study of patio houses. Houses that are reduced to a minimum domestic program, which are isolated from the city, without a concrete context beyond their own inhabitant, a hypothetical Mies.1 But among all these houses there is a unique proposal, the so-called Patio House “with garage”.

The attributes of La Tourette | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 01 Two design circumstances were decisive to establish the character that typifies the architecture of the Convent of La Tourette. The first is embodied by defining the horizontal plane governing the highest point of the terrain, so that, from that horizontal, the building descends copying the irregular topography of the slope. The second is to mutate the concept of […]

Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems […]

Ant Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 Arne Jacobsen considered himself, above all, an architect. But the transcendence of his furniture has made him recognized as an industrial designer, something he always tried to escape. Jacobsen believed that design, architecture and the arts could function as a whole, according to the ideas of gesamtkunstwerk. This ideal of artistic synthesis led him to design the chair […]

Plato wins | José Ramón Hernández Correa

5.0 03 We all know a couple of things on Platón, or maybe only one: “That said that the objects that we see and feel are scarcely a vague shade, a pale reflection of the ideal objects, which us turn out to be unattainable and are beyond our perception, as archetypes.” Each and every of the hammers of the world […]

Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

5.0 01 We often remind our teachers both for their works and for their speeches, brief aphorisms in the form of compressed reasonings that so many turns reach over the years. Surely the most classic and well-known “citations” already clustered in the memory, some dogmatic as sentences probably out of focus. However, some of those concise phrases are ingenious and […]

5.0 01 Housing was one of the great themes of architectural research since the early post-revolutionary years in the Soviet Union.

The first option comprehended the subdivision of expropriated houses and the new division […]

The architects and their private devil | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

5.0 01 Two things were recorded to me from a teenage reading of El Diablo, by Giovanni Papini (1881-1956), which gave the author some difficulties with the ecclesiastical world. The first, that the greatest success of the evil spirit is to make us believe that it does not exist; the second the cover of that edition, the face of the […]

Diseño sin revolución | Pedro Hernández

5.0 01 “Architecture or revolution”, wrote Le Corbusier in 1923. It is a turbulent time, just five years before the world had seen the first workers’ revolution in Russia triumph. The revolution – like its twin rebellion and revolt – is a space for chaos, reverses the established order with a social mass intermingled and turned into a multitude. Le Corbusier, […]

5.0 02 Entropy is described by physics as a magnitude that measures the degree of disorder of a system. The image suggested by La Ampliadora for this issue of the magazine may evoke high entropy. An ordered system only supports one possible configuration, so there is more chance that a system is messy. If we make the analogy with the […]
