One person’s ego-centric vision of how cities should adapt to their own particular individual needs encroaches upon the dreams of another, as revealed by MVRDV’s Tetris-like open-walled ‘(W)Ego House.’ The design is part art installation, part futuristic vision, part warning against architecture that’s one-size-fits-all. Originally created in 2015 and displayed at Dutch Design Week 2017, it’s now reassembled for UABB, the seventh Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture in Shenzhen.

Ciclorama de Gettysburg. Richard Neutra

12 January, 2018 - 01:10

En 1958, Richard Neutra gana el concurso para la construcción del Ciclorama de Gettysburg. Un edificio que albergaría la reconstrucción pictórica vívida de la batalla, así como material histórico, oficina y un pequeño salón de actos. Así mismo se incluirían almacenes y diversos espacios anexos. El edificio, con una historia intensa y pragmática que finalizó con su demolición en 2013. La accidental causa para su demolición fue precisamente la no inclusión del edificio en el National Registrer of Historic Places, sin embargo, desde el punto de vista arquitectónico, la obra plantea un exhaustivo trabajo de muchas de las ideas que Neutra estaba trabajando en ese mismo momento.
