AIRPORT SWEET AIRPORT: A city of makeshift living Carolina Díaz de Argandoña Araujo The project proposes a new understanding of the “airport” by questioning its specifically functional and required‐by‐protocol view and questioning the “no‐place” concept commonly associated. Analysing contemporary ways of dwelling, where many travel carrying “their home” in a suitcase, the domestic area can … Continue reading Carolina Díaz de Argandoña

“Si encontramos un montículo en el bosque,
de seis pies de largo y tres de ancho, amontonado en forma piramidal, nos pondremos serios y en nuestro interior algo dirá: aquí hay alguien enterrado.
Esto es arquitectura.” Adolf Loos.

Archidose[dot]org Update

19 March, 2018 - 00:30
Just some URL news: Yesterday was the last day for my URL. I'd had some issues with my webhost in recent years, and it got to the point where most of my blog stuff had moved to Blogger. So without much need for my own server and URL, I decided to ditch Everything here remains the same, though some of the images may be broken (many of them already were, due to my webhost problems). I'll be moving those images to Blogger in the coming months, but feel free to email me if you see a post with broken images.

Seeking to combine traditional education with the responsible use of resources and the development of sustainable human relations, the first sustainable public school in Latin America was created. Designed under a constructive method developed by the North American architect Michael Reynolds, who has now built such schools around the world.

The 270 square meters building is on the coastal portion of Jaureguiberry, Canelones and was raised in only seven weeks. Its construction is made up of approximately 60% recycled materials (covered with plastic and glass bottles, cans, cardboard) and 40% of traditional materials.

From the architects. The Earthship, as Reynolds calls it, seeks to make the most of the energy of the sun, water, wind, and earth. To do this, the surroundings are sensitive to the orientations, opening to the north to make the most of light and solar energy through a wide glass corridor that acts as a distributor of the three classrooms and two wings of the school, projecting to the exterior a simple and forceful facade dominated by glass and wood.

Living rooms are spaces dedicated to sharing time with family, receiving visitors, working, and carrying out a wide range of unpredictable activities. Regardless of their size, the key to an innovative design for this part of a house is in creative spatial organization, in its connection to other parts of the home and, above all, in programmatic flexibility. Here, we present a selection of exceptional living rooms captured by renowned photographers such as Hiroshi UedaDavid Foessel, and Wison Tungthunya.

Telegrama, no tuit Siempre que mantengamos el control sobre la evocación –no es cuestión de ir exponiendo nuestras crisis por ahí- a la larga preferimos rememorar las situaciones traumáticas a mantenerlas ocultas. No se trata exactamente de una inclinación masoquista. Aunque resulte doloroso, solemos acabar prefiriendo conocernos a nosotros mismos a mantener la mentira, que … Continue reading Carlos Cachón

Telegrama, no tuit Siguen defendiendo el silencio, condenando todo acto como una expresión de vanidad. Y si alguien se equivoca al publicar su obra y escribe mal su nombre, reclaman con rapidez que se corrija. No vaya a ser que se lleven otros el mérito de ser los que no hacen nada. Carlos Cachón
