La grapa de ABC | Alberto Ruiz

José entró a la cocina con el ejemplar de ABC debajo del brazo. Se sentó en su butaca preferida, junto a la ventana mientras Trini le ponía un café. En tazón grande, con la leche muy caliente, como lo tomaba desde que era un crío. Abrió el periódico. Le encantaba el olor de la tinta y, sobre todo, que el […]

The 60s were the age of the megastructures, the age of the Utopian dreams, the age of the revolts against the established. In turn they were the epoch of the construction of the imaginary common one.

Diseño sin revolución | Pedro Hernández

“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.
