Does anyone know what criticism is? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Lately, based on reading blogs and websites, I am reading more about architecture than in many years. I am almost returning to the reading level I had when I was a student. Between that era of the school of architecture and the current one there is a turbid (and lucrative) stage of successful professional who bought expensive magazines to see […]

The distensiónes of the space in Zaha Hadid | Marcelo Gardinetti

In terms of methodological investigation, the Zaha Hadid’s first works were the most fruitful. In them it explores and re-formulates searches of the forefronts of beginning of 20th century aborted by the political conditions of those years. The genetic root of these works waters in the language suprematista of Kazimir Malévich. The traffic for the work of the Russian artist […]

From the architecture of the dirt to the architecture of the company | Stepienybarno

El pasado 20 de noviembre 2015, Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, mientras moderaba la estupenda mesa redonda de Siza x Siza, comentó que la obra del maestro portugués, más allá de sus evidentes bondades, tenía el plus de que estaba pensada cuidando todos los detalles -incluso el poco tratado tema de la limpieza del proyecto-. Para ilustrarlo hablaba de cómo en uno de […]

An intemperate fluency | Marcelo Gardinetti

Most of the works realized in the last years by Zaha Hadid turns out to be works structured under decisively singular bosses of design, where the rough lines of his formal statement constitute the axis of his emblems, over any other variable.

Zahas Hadides why? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The strengths of the architect | Stepienybarno

Some time ago a good friend of ours was commenting to us that for him, the architects we were like ducks. These animals are of air, are of land and are of water, do everything, though they do nothing excessively well.
