The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us. In occasions there preserve even some recollections of our lives, as the porous and dusty mirrors of the old houses, which seem to examine from the hats and suits to stripes of ours forbears1. Also the mirrors take care of […]

Igalitarian status and illusory limit in SANAA | Marcelo Gardinetti

A distinctive feature of the work of Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa is the valuation extreme of the horizontal space, understanding that he consents the natural movement of the man and facilitates his field of vision of a way that allows to join the architecture with the horizon.

By Parts | Íñigo García Odiaga

The architecture unlike other artistic works, dragged by his own functional definition has presented  many times along the history like a sum of pieces, of stays or of parts. This system compositivo reappears in the architecture more vanguardista, that contradictoriamente does alarde to escape of the composition. That somehow the functionalism, that is to say the proyectación of architectures by […]

The third space | Íñigo García Odiaga

The city is one of the paradigms of the human activity, and probably it is impossible to define it without alluding to the intensity of the relations, the exchanges and the connections between the citizens, that it is capable of generating.

Small Architecture Now!

Saving space. Big ideas for small buildings. Over the years, talented architects have occasionally indulged themselves with the challenge of designing small but perfectly formed buildings.

Vertical Desire | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often we observe buildings that show a great desire for conquering the uprightness. It is immediate to think about the idea proportion, a concept that unties the royal height of an object or of a building of his desires of uprightness. A limited plant, opposite to one strong component in the axis Z guarantees the formalization of a tower though […]

Notebook of New York (IV) | Antonio S. Río Vázquez

Come from The High Line supposes the meeting with the city of the 30s – decade in the one that constructed the air line of railroad herself to avoid the dangerousness of sharing the street with the pedestrians – and the Nueva York of the 21st century, when the routes – in disuse from 1980-were claimed by the citizens.

Notebook of New York (II) | Antonio S. Río Vázquez

Come from Geography and geometry have been intimately joined from the origins of the urbanism. Across the geometry the planning of the cultures became simple, and also the construction of the city.

Even more if it is a question of a destination chased for time, which visit turns into an ansíada put and, at the same time, in the beginning of new reflections and trips in the space and the time, that they extend and recall the own experience. These days […]

The garden of the contemplations | Íñigo García Odiaga

The architecture of the pavilions, of the small facilities is in the habit of producing very extreme results, or they generate projects of incalculable value on those who will be debated for years or on the contrary they present noisy failures.  The ephemeral of these constructions, his symbolic value and the lack of specific uses to sheltering, contribute to the […]
