Peepholes and telescopes | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The look crosses the contemporary city a bit lost between signs, asphalt, walls and luminous labels: impermeable surfaces. The system also shows inaccessible hollows as the foreign window from which to be able to feel discreetly observed. The urban eye scarcely penetrates a couple of meters in the shop windows, the interior of a vehicle, the black after the window […]

The manufacturer of urns | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The objects claim, in occasions, the appearance of certain architectures. His antiquity, his rarety or his value is done by worthy inhabitants of exclusive spaces, it was already of our scope and our customs. The objects are liberated then of the frictions that the daily use imposes and occupy the place sensitive and protected from the gem: chattels transformed by […]

The drawing of the world

Arranged some behind others, Sverre Fehn’s drawings shape an alphabet of signs, a procession of glifos that relate concepts constructing a fable. They do not content with illuminating an idea, pledge in transporting us to a time and to a space where the objects and the represented men enter action. Sus croquis se encuentran en el ámbito de transición milenario […]

A house in Finland. The fantasy and the memory | Borja Lopez Cotelo

I began to walk between the coniferous ones. His geometric trunks were leaking the beams of the pale Sun. They were last days of May and on the lake Päijänne there were floating still some chunks of ice, lazy in these last weeks of winter lethargy. It was walking slowly, being afraid to meet suddenly the housing that Alvar Aalto […]

Sverre Fehn’s notebooks | Borja López Cotelo

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (VIII) | epR

The dodo bird. Fehn and his drawings of line. Fragile, synthetic and cryptic. Drawings that are almost at all. Exiguous outlines in which it fits the entire world. Cosmogonophy of horizons and ships, of the Suns and lunas, always of men. Fehn and his architecture of elongated shades. The young person northern prodigy of Brussels, Venice and Hamar. Then, the […]

The Club of the Lost Paradise | Borja López Cotelo

Dei Greci was walking slow along the street. It was Thursday, and in the calm atmosphere of these last hours of the day, Venice was looking like another city. I crossed the bridge, got lost for the multicolored Riva degli Schiavoni and sat down in the edge of a channel to seeing to spend the life, allowing that my legs […]

One day of 1958 | Borja López Cotelo

The Sun was shining in the sky of Brussels burning the visitors of Heysel’s esplanade. Sverre and Reima were drinking, to small sips, an African coffee. Reima breathed depth, thought a few seconds, and said: -As it is learned to imagine by major and major concentration you stop being able to work with objects or prefabricated schemes … The really […]

Nobody in my neighborhood knew to Mies Van der Rohe. The children we were not dreaming of being Alvar Aalto because our altar they were occupying it Bruce Lee, Rocky Balboa, Peio Uralde or Zoran Stojadinovic. I, who was a bit rare, sometimes was changing aim and was aspiring to happen to the great Sempé. The days were passing between books […]
