¿Enseñar arquitectura? | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Pasaron muchos años después de mi entrada como profesor interino en la Facultad de Arquitectura de la UCV antes de que pudiera encontrarme cómodo con el rol de profesor. Conociendo mis carencias, mis dudas, no creía estar en capacidad de orientar a los más jóvenes, de apuntar con cierta claridad en una disciplina que todavía no me abría del todo […]

In search of coherence | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It is not because the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2009 had dedicated lectures and analytical studies, the reason we are interested in the Le Corbusier holiday shelter built in Roquebrune-Cap Martin on the shores of the French Mediterranean. It has always captured our attention because it represents what seems to be scarce at the present time in the […]

Everything reaches the sea | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

“Nothing is transmissible but Thought” is the title of the last text written by Le Corbusier before his death in 1965. A phrase that explains in a very complete way the reason why the legacy of this man has had irreplaceable character for the development of architecture. Because it was not only through the orderly dissemination of his work, carried […]

Learn from what has been | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Architects can not form without knowing, and learning to love, what preceded us. A young woman who recently wrote that she cared little about Ronchamp and that she preferred the most current, will be able to become a draftsman, a CAD technician, a construction assistant, but to be an architect she will have to adopt a higher level of reflection.

A model that opened roads | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I spoke here the last time of the Marseille Unit, completed in 1953, as an emblematic building of the twentieth century. It can be useful to talk about this building and what originated it. The European political-social explosion of the first decades of the twentieth century, produced, had to produce it, a radical change of perspective in terms of the […]

Architectures of the pain | Íñigo García Odiaga

The end of the first world war in 1918, gave step to a prosperous period of political changes and social revolutions. All these changes had his reflection in the art and in the architecture, and it would be impossible to give a moderately logical explanation of the Russian forefronts, the constructivism or the international style, without the historical context arisen […]

The eclecticism in the Spanish modern architecture. Years 20-30 and 50-60 | Antón Capitel

It can be said, without too many exaggeration, that any architecture is eclectic, and can be added also that so often reside in this condition the most important bases of his own quality.

1. The world in the one that developed the history of the Bauhaus was very different from the current one, though his influence in the art, the design and the architecture is recognized still in a very clear way. El mundo en el que se desarrolló la historia de la Bauhaus era muy distinto al actual, aunque su influencia en […]

Los mejores años de nuestra vida.
