Alberto Corral Corral · Ubuild, a new construction system in wood

We have seen how the architects these years have recovered and covered diverse fields of work, even explored in some less common ones such as research and development of products or systems, mainly populated by other professionals. Although I+D is an area that has not been very prolific in architecture lately, we find some cases such as the Galician architect, […]

El futuro es un no lugar | Pedro Hernández

El 5 de diciembre de 2016, Amazon, el gigante de las ventas online, publicaba en su perfil de YouTube un vídeo titulado Introducing Amazon Go and the world’s most advanced shopping technology. La idea era tan sencilla como radical, y parecía sacada de una historia de una ciencia ficción, pero con un nivel de realismo que hacía preguntarse por qué a […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there is no […]

About the standardization of the wrong technology | Marc Chalamanch

In recent decades the omnipresence of technology has accelerated our history as never before. Technological determinism tries to explain how technology by itself is capable of influencing and transforming in a positive way the socioeconomic context in which it develops. According to its followers, technology has become the central axis of the historical changes that determine development and social progress; […]

Autoorganization and Cybernetics | Miquel Lacasta

Lately the notion of self-organization has taken a certain protagonism in the conception of the city and the architecture, probably to political / social current recomic singer of the situation. In a sense it can sound to chimera the fact that so much, objects as persons, have a trend towards an organization not programmed in advance. It is more, I […]

Parametric architecture and informational design. Beyond mere formalism | Miguel Villegas

The parametricism, or rather, the guru of parametricism, with its ill-fated manifesto has done a lot of damage to those who, like us, work with digital tools trying to stay on this side of formal banality. Parametricism may be a style. The parametric architecture does not. How to explain the differences? Well I do not know very well. Perhaps simply […]

Looking down | Íñigo García Odiaga

To reject the direct look of the eyes can be a symptom of shame or coyness, this way it is in the habit of being interpreted when someone us lowers the look. But in some cultures like the Japanese it is a symptom of respect. For the architect this gesture can be of submission. Mies lowers the look to get […]

The kitchen of the Oíza´s grandmother | La choricera de Segovia

Years ago I listened to Sáenz de Oíza to speak against the excessively functional design, and it put a very convincing example. He spoke that the functional kitchen of the Bauhaus had all the necessary elements foreseen exhaustively, up to the last detail, and all this perfectly modulated and optimized. It was a marvel that in the twenties, while the […]

Sobre el arte de hacer ciudades y Richard Sennett | Miquel Lacasta

“There are two ways of thinking bring over of what is the public urban space.

Entered the 21st century there has vanished the city of the technologies of the information that were prophesying, a few decades ago, the futurólogos disguised as gurus. Neither it has come near to the totalitarian tecnópolis denounced by the nostalgic ones of “any last time always is better”. It turns out interesting to revise the bold Messianic predictions that the […]
