Arquitectura Viva 256: fala


Radical Work. For Filipe Magalhães, Ana Luisa Soares, Ahmed Belkhodja, and Lera Samovich, a mix of diversified training, international experience, and above all shared obsessions have carried the day over mere physical ties to the city they work in, and enabled them to surpass the influence that Porto wields over its architects. Arquitectura Viva presents the firm’s wide repertoire of projects, heterogeneous but always guided by an insistence on clarity.

The dossier of this issue presents four major museums that have opened this year: the Museum of Modern Art of Istanbul by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the expansion of the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney by SANAA, the Richard Gilder Center for Science of the American Museum of Natural History in New York by Studio Gang, and the Museum of Ethnography of Budapest by Napur Architect.

In the Art and Culture section, a professor in Barcelona and another in Madrid pay homage to two Spanish masters who passed away a hundred years ago: Josep Maria Montander writes on the multifaceted career of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, and Javier García-Gutiérrez Mosteiro recalls the solid intellectual baggage of Ricardo Velázquez Bosco. And the usual News and Books sections are complemented with an article by Jorge Torres that observes another centennial: the publication of Le Corbusier’s influential Vers une architecture.
