Inspired by the legacy of César Manrique in Lanzarote, the center is designed as a dark, horizontal plane made out of the island’s volcanic ash, managing to merge the building with the terrain...
As if it were the deck of a ship stranded between two beaches, a horizontal platform on a huge stone box that seems to have emerged from the bowels of the Earth offers views of the distant sea...
The project ‘Between Cathedrals’ sought to carry out an intervention worthy of the most significant location in the history of Cadiz, the oldest city of the West: the empty space between the Old and New Cathedrals, facing the sea. The objectives were
Conceived as a ‘cascade of volumes,’ the building is staggered over four levels between the two streets to adapt to the steep site so that, from the sea, this new house is seen as just one more piece of the village...
A series of programmatic and functional walls go up on an orthogonal and flexible grid that manages to resolve, in a unitary and simultaneous way, the spaces, structure, installations, enclosure and integration into its surrondings. The program – mar
The Japanese firm SANAA, founded by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, has won the competition to build the Maritime Museum in the Dapeng area of the city of Shenzhen. Its scheme, titled ‘The Cloud on the Ocean,’ was one of 88 entries that came from 2

After leaving Australia in 1966, Utzon decided to build a getaway where he could spend time with his family, and in Mallorca he found the ideal place. However, as time went by Can Lis became, as happened with his other few works, a pilgrimage site fo
Oliver Wainwright Hovering above the sandy shores of Saadiyat Island like an upturned colander washed up on the beach, the metal-domed roof of the Louvre Abu Dhabi doesn't give much away from the outside. A cluster of white blocks spreads out from be
Issue 5 of Zodiac, published in the spring of 1960, showed how Jørn Utzon’s winning the competition for the Sydney Opera House was not a mere stroke of luck, and that he was an architect to watch out for. Works like the water tower on Bornholm or the
Water dilutes the certitudes of architecture. Its liquid state erodes physical foundations and disintegrates the discipline’s conceptual base. Marx warned that under capitalism ‘all that is solid melts into air,’ and Marshall Berman picked up the bat
El territorio gallego está formado por cientos, miles de valles, de diverso tamaño y configuración, que se van acoplando los unos a los otros, y articulando, en tanto que descienden desde las altas montañas del interior hasta el mar. También cientos,
