Intrahistorias de la Arquitectura 2020

«Todo lo que cuentan a diario los periódicos, la historia toda del ‘presente momento histórico’, no es sino la superficie del mar, una superficie que se hiela y cristaliza en los libros y registro. (…) Los periódicos nada dicen de la vida silenciosa de millones de hombres sin historia que a todas horas del día y en todos los países […]

Coches ¡malditos coches! | Stepienybarno

El problema de la movilidad es uno de los frentes que consideramos más importantes a la hora de aspirar a ciudades más sanas y habitables. Sin embargo, muchas veces, quizás por su aparente obviedad, se pasa por él de puntillas, sin darle la trascendencia que tiene. A su vez, es un tema que nos interesa especialmente, porque creemos que, si […]

Domestic domain. Border and boundary as “enclosure” | Luis Gil

The rediscovery of the edge and the enclosure as an object of study and as a generator of new ways of understanding where current affairs happen, not as in the cultural and presentation issue of the subject being limited by the metaphor of the transition of the end and in particular of the crisis neoliberal of the end of the […]

Architectures on the border and border | Luis Gil

If the edge, as a boundary or border, can only be approached by force (energy in a pure state without cultivating) or the strategy attached to its concretion, the technique (the invention that allows acting to deceive adversity), history architectures gestated at the border it has also materialized in a double formalization. In this way, the border and border space […]

The border city | Luis Gil

The liminal cities, they are of entry and exit, susceptible to be besieged and therefore forced to protection in adverse moments. They are spaces or surrounding territories fighting at the same time against the outside that with the own necessity to grow like other communities in more stable situations. The closed or walled city, both the maritime, the one built […]

The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The intrinsic nature of the border is that of being an area of danger, an insecure space in which the development of the essential tasks of life requires a state of continuous alertness. It is the space for the exchange of energy, where it is released or integrated into new areas, which implies a constant rebalancing of the forces acting […]

Maceira House | Castroferro Arquitectos

The position of the house is marked by the granite outbreak. A large mass of stone was waiting for us below, which made us rethink the whole project to let us be guided by that new element that appeared on the scene. Thus, the building sits lightly on that stone base, a compact housing by necessity that is only violated […]

The plan as a tool for border overflow | Luis Gil

The border as a tense space that opposes its transit, requires effort, determination, formal or fundamental change to be transgressed and overcome or inhabited temporarily or continuously. Thus, the passage through the border or the limit, the jump from one medium to another implies the discovery of a technique that makes possible the survival in the other margin, the change, […]

The border, artificial and invented mechanism | Luis Gil

In this way when the natural barrier (the geographical accident) artificially used to protect the interior ecosystem, is insufficient, inadequate or non-existent for the desired economic or social use, then man develops not only artificiality over the natural but also takes a step more and build an ex-novo border. It is an invention that saves the natural deficiency, and around […]

Limits, nature and artifice | Luis Gil

When talking about limit or border, the words of bankruptcy or separation are instantly added to the conversation. A first approach to the definition of boundary or border spaces, would limit them as those areas of emptiness or obstacle that are shaped or structured as a nature that is little or not practicable, in which the movement slows down or […]

Refugio Doñana | Fermín G. Blanco

Era un día gris y amarillo. No sabía si era lluvia lo que traía el viento, o es que la niebla pesaba mojando el suelo. El denso silencio del aire solo se cortaba por el murmullo de los árboles, y por algunos rayos de sol que huían de las nubes. Caía la tarde, helaban las hojas. Salía humo de la […]

Mastery as a fundamental and physical problem of boundary and border phenomena | Luis Gil

The movement and walking is innate to the activity of man, for various reasons, from the great migrations and movements in the search for Paleolithic hunting to the present day. A movement that was originally forced by the need to survive against the adverse nature, much earlier than the subsequent sedentary and articulation of man with the territory through the […]

House in Mera | Patricia Sabín – Enrique M. Blanco

A small holiday home in Mera –Oleiros -, the result of a family with two children. A friendly environment in the natural, on an intermediate scale, in a context suitable for living on foot, but difficult in the next built. Absence of references in their environment beyond orientation. An ostensibly triangular plot, with more than seventy meters along the road. […]

Allegory of the border and the limit | Luis Gil

The neoliberal actuality that we have had to live makes it difficult, like no other, to refer behaviors, events and attitudes to a stable horizon, a concrete framework that serves as an articulator, as an element of dialogue and background to the analysis of a hardly acotable contemporaneity, nothing defined and a rapid emptying of contents, whose ultimate goal seems […]

Casa Almudena | Jesús Perales Arquitecto

THE COMMISSION Almudena and Jordi asked us to design a ground floor house, for them and their two children to live in. They have many hobbies, such as music, arts and crafts and cooking. They always look forward to spending time together as a family. The objective of the property was clear: for all the members of this small family […]

¿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 […]

Containment walls | Íñigo García Odiaga

Probablemente la foto más conocida de la guerra fría es la capturada por Peter Leibing el 15 de agosto de 1961. La imagen refleja el instante en el que el suboficial de la guardia de fronteras de la Alemania Oriental, Conrad Schumann, salta el muro de Berlín, aún en construcción en el sector francés de la capital Alemana. Más allá […]

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, […]

Opportunity limits | Íñigo García Odiaga

Border spaces, barriers and links. The old frontiers, geopolitical barriers that operated from the territorial expression of the sovereignty of a country, are blurred at present, configuring intermediate spaces, which define areas of opportunity. They are also the regions in conflict, which show more clearly the tensions and concentrations of activity that borders introduce into the territorial continuum. While these […]

Botas Ghirlanda → Malaparte → Godard → Cavani | Jorge Gorostiza

Recently, surfing the net, I found the picture Gulf of Capri, which Juan Manuel Botas Ghirlanda painted in the first decade of the last century and whose reproduction attached on this text. It is curious that the pictures and almost everything, is now seen more on the screens than in reality, although the impression is not the same. When I […]

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 […]

Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems to respond […]
