Henri Ciriani: L' ECO VIDE de l'ARCHITECTURE. Un article (en espagnol) non publié pour le N° 200 de la revue Arkinka

Henri Ciriani: L' ECO VIDE de l'ARCHITECTURE. Un article (en espagnol) non publié pour le N° 200 de la revue Arkinka | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Primero se fueron los manifiestos de arquitectura de las revistas de arquitectura –no pasó nada pues ya casi no se hacía arquitectura manifiesto. Luego se fueron los grandes debates, donde los arquitectos respondían como ciudadanos de una ciudad compartida. No pasó nada, pues el giro neoliberal de los 1980 consagró la figura del arquitecto estrella y los arquitectos compitieron entre ellos en vez de asociarse para el bien de la Arquitectura. Progresivamente desaparecieron las personas de las fotografía de arquitectura. No protestaron los arquitectos, pues así se veía mejor sus objetos solitarios. De pronto no se podía criticar ningún edificio, pues los edificios servían para vender un barrio, una ciudad, un gobierno. Y cuando se presentaron unas perspectivas 3D más realistas que cualquier fotomontaje, nadie se indignó al ver equiparados plásticamente los proyectos de arquitectos a las publicidades de proyectos de inmobiliarias en falta de identidad. Esa ambigüedad entre el dibujo de un proyecto y la fotografía de una realización se hace cada vez más imponente.

[Alentejo, Portugal] ARX position house in possanco on a triangular site - designboom | architecture & design magazine

[Alentejo, Portugal] ARX position house in possanco on a triangular site - designboom | architecture & design magazine | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

House in possanco’ by ARX is a small vacation getaway positioned on a triangular lot in the region of alentejo, portugal. set between the area’s urban strip and protected agricultural zone of the village, the site offers views of the extensive plains and arrabida mountain ridge to the north, with the river sado running through, and the atlantic ocean in the distance defining the horizon to complete the tranquil setting. the owners wanted a dwelling that was contemporary in nature, but still fit in with the traditional architecture of the quarter. in response, ARX has envisioned a compact two-storey home that is expressed by a long, angular roof, the entirety of the volume painted in white, bringing about an abstract figure amidst the dry, natural landscape. because of the land restrictions, ARX had to overcome a number of challenges when developing the design. for example, though the most interesting views were towards the north, the windows would need to be placed facing south in order to maximize the sun’s brightness. however, this would mean that they would be directed towards the street, traffic and passers-by who could look inside, which the owners wanted to avoid. this issue ended up becoming the key feature of the house, resulting in the implementation of several patios–an architectural element which happens to be a paradigm of the dwellings in possanco–allowing ARX to maintain privacy, while still taking advantage of natural light. in total four terraces are integrated into the plan: a central courtyard, one in the living room, another in the social toilets and the last by the children’s room. all are situated north, guiding views towards the beautiful landscape, each of them resembling bluish excavations as they open upwards to the sky, further enhancing the abstract personality of the geometric mass.

Video: Firminy: José Oubrerie / 32BNY and Spirit of Space | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

32BNY in collaboration with Spirit of Space has released its fifth videopolemic, entitledFirminy: José Oubrerie. In this video José Oubrerie, a French architect and protégé of Le Corbusier, currently teaching at the Knowlton School of Architecture at Ohio State University, remembers his time working for Corbu, working on the Church in Firminy.

32BNY was launched in February 2013 as a website dedicated to the potential of cinematic architectural discourse. Previous videopolemics included Steven Holl and Sanford Kwinter on Lebbeus Woods, Vito Acconci on Art and Architecture, Drawing as Thought, and Existential Sensitivity: Jeffrey Kipnis and Steven Holl. Although 32BNY admit they do not know what the terms ‘cinematic architectural discourse’, or ‘videopolemic’ mean, they are undeterred from their exploration. You can find out more about them and their work on their website.

at the site of domaine of o. in montpellier, france stands the ‘jean-claude carrière theatre’ designed by A+ architecture. the bold, vibrant culture box is situated amongst a forest of pine trees just off an esplanade, offering a welcome, and suited contrast to its natural setting. the fiery red volume is enveloped in a harlequin patterned façade–which speaks of the building’s function–that is made from cuts of wood strategically arranged to create the motif. this woven exterior also features colorful diamond-shaped lights embedded within, that further reference the expressed geometries as well as offering dynamic visuals by night.
