“Sobre lo complementario”. José María Sánchez en los encuentros organizados por Tectónica en Finsa21

4 hours 36 minutes ago

José María Sánchez García, recuperación del entorno del Templo de Diana en Mérida, Badajoz.

Cada obra realizada por José María Sánchez García ha producido cierta extrañeza por ofrecer una abstracción radical o bien por mostrar un clasicismo sereno y sorprendente.

El miércoles 30 de enero desvela en una conferencia para unos pocos su gestión de ‘lo complementario,’ que produce una arquitectura tan equilibrada y atractiva.

José María Sánchez García, Centro Internacional de Innovación Deportiva ‘El Anillo’, Cáceres.

José María Sánchez García es doctor arquitecto por la ETSAM, en donde es profesor asociado de Proyectos, y actualmente es profesor invitado en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Mendrisio y en la Universidad ETH de Zúrich, ambas en Suiza.

Developed by Katie Rispoli Keaotamai over a one-and-a-half-year timespan, the platform will now accept applications for its first 100 members until April, at a cost 31% lower than the fees paid for professional memberships.

Centered around dialogue, the platform offers access to ideas and opportunities that will positively shape the built environment, be it exchanging information, consulting on a project, or finding a new role in the profession.

Cities are hotter than surrounding areas because of a climate phenomena that is known as the urban heat island (UHI). While scientists have studied this effect for decades, new information has recently come to light that points to the way we arrange our cities as a key contributor to raised temperatures. The results could help city planners build our future cities better.

I’m Nine Years Old – Middle Age

9 hours 47 minutes ago

As party week powers relentlessly on, today is a look at years 6, 7, and 8, what has come to represent the depressing middle age years … 


Life of an Architect – Year’s Six (2015), Seven (2016) and Eight (2017)

Just like all architects seem to really start hitting their stride once they hit middle age, the blog saw it’s best moments during this period … it also saw it’s very worst. Things were going along somewhat swimmingly from a professional standpoint but this was the year that I learned my limit on the things I could say “yes” to … unfortunately, you don’t really learn that limit until after you’ve exceeded it. I was heavily involved in extra-curricular work-related activities in addition to having a really heavy workload in the office. I was on the Board of Directors for the Dallas AIA, Chairman of the Digital Communications Committee for the Texas Society of Architects, on the Advisory Board for 3 magazines, took part of 3 design award juries, and gave 10 presentations at various AIA component events throughout Texas, Florida, Minnesota, and California.

Art of the Chinese Courtyard: Respectful Renovations Keep Hutongs Alive

19 hours 47 minutes ago
[ By SA Rogers in Architecture & Cities & Urbanism. ]

Building booms around the world can render entire neighborhoods unrecognizable in a matter of days, demolishing historic structures to make way for new developments. In cities like Beijing, where older architecture such as “siheyuan” courtyard houses stand out for their uniqueness and beauty, the transition from traditional to contemporary can feel all the more jarring. Urban development is all but inevitable to manage growing populations, but for many onlookers, it’s sad to see the past bulldozed in favor of new buildings that don’t even acknowledge the area’s cultural and architectural legacy.
