From A to Zaha: 26 Women Who Changed Architecture – Architizer (lo más leído y compartido)

«… Speaking to The New York Times in April this year, architect Yen Ha revealed an uncomfortable truth for the profession: Women are still discriminated against in the workplace, facing a daily battle for respect in the studio, on the construction site and everywhere in between.“We absolutely face obstacles. Every single day,” said Ha. “It’s still largely a white, male-dominated field, and seeing a woman at the job site or in a big meeting with developers is not that common. Every single day, I have to remind someone that I am, in fact, an architect. And sometimes not just an architect, but the architect.” … «

Inception’s Dream Architecture :: Christopher Nolan new sci-fi movie » Architizer – Empowering Architecture – Blog (El Origen)

For a movie about the “architecture of the mind,” much of the design of the blockbuster Christopher Nolan film Inception seems tame—at first. We catch aerial glimpses of Paris, Mombasa (actually filmed in Tangiers), and Tokyo from a camera angle set close to the horizon, underscoring the mass scale and infinite loop of the film’s plot. (See: previous cityscapes — Hong Kong, Chicago — from Nolan’s last film The Dark Knight.)

Like This!

The pace and tone are ultra-realistic, the lighting crisp, the characters well-dressed, never betraying the seriousness of the affair. It’s the buildings that warp, explode, and shift on screen as they do in the protagonist’s mind.

In Inception, we see an architecture student named Ariadne (Ellen Page) recruited by Cobb (DiCaprio) to break into a wealthy businessman’s mind to plant an idea. Having lived in Paris during her studies (at one point she romanticizes walking across the Pont de Bir-Hakeim on her way to class), she adapts quickly to building mazes in the shared dreamscape. She is also able to bend the rules of physics: her Paris bends and layers itself over her in a dream state, one of the scenes that became a teaser image and poster for the movie. It’s as if we were inside the head of Nolan’s Joker, a world based on reality but without rules.

Overall, we see how the built world is distorted and replayed inside our heads. In a film somewhat devoid of human emotion, the subtle characters let architectural emotions go wild. Maybe Inception’s buildings are mugging for an Oscar or something.

«Origen» («Inception»), cine soñado

Federico Marín Bellón – Cine

Este blog se aleja otra vez de su esencia para extraviarse en el último título de Christopher Nolan, un gigante de la creación cinematográfica que con «Inception» (no muy bien traducida como «Origen») sumerge al espectador en una espiral tan ambiciosa y profunda como bien trazada. Que algo así nos llegue en agosto, sin que el autor hinche el producto para cobrarnos por las gafas y sin necesidad de montar un refrito a partir de algún taquillazo previo, otorga aún más mérito a una obra que incluso en sus imperfecciones resulta majestuosa. ¿Con cuántas películas sale uno del cine con esas ganas irresistibles de ponerse a hablar?

Sala Vip

Una magnífica película

Me refiero a Origen de Christopher Nolan con Leonardo DiCaprio, estrenada como de soslayo en este silencioso estío que preludia tantas cosas.

Y, sin embargo, resulta una película inmensa y de mucha actualidad para nosotros los españoles, que además de regalarnos lecciones bien profundas sobre el mundo como ensoñación nos reconcilia con ese gran cine del que estamos ayunos últimamente. Tal vez, por tener nuestro tiempo atrofiada esa facultad fundamental para la vida humana en que consiste la imaginación y cuya renuncia a ponerla en juego –habría que preguntarse por qué– tantas cosas explica sobre el estado de insatisfacción en el que estamos instalados el hombre y mujer contemporáneos. Y que tanta satisfacción, en cambio, otorga al poder político vigente.

The Royal Institute of British Architects might be a tough crowd to please (the London chair recently resigned in the face of a “no confidence” vote — meow!) but its taste is unimpeachable.

Each year the organization awards accolades to a host of British architects for their built work in the field, seeking the edifice that made the “greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.” Of its 102 honorees in the 2010 RIBA Awards, 93 are in the UK, with the remaining 9 sprinkled across Europe.

And despite economic woes, the show will go on. President Ruth Reed said, “In the midst of the deepest recession in the 45 year history of the RIBA Awards, this year’s awards demonstrate that although times might be hard for architects, there are still great buildings being built throughout the country and overseas.”

Unlike its cousin the Stirling Prize, also awarded by RIBA and pulled from the larger list of 102, the honorees comprise a handy reference guide to emerging and mid-career practices-to-watch: “Far from being a size prize, the RIBA Awards are for buildings that offer value to people’s lives.” Examples of “gem-like” projects that made the shortlist include a small circular restroom for bus drivers in London, a zero-carbon house, and the energy substation for the 2012 Olympics.

Esperando el Premio Pritzker 2010


The Pritzker Architecture Prize 2010
The Pritzker Architecture Prize 2010
@Architizer The Pritzker Prize is awarded Sunday – @archdaily has a poll going and Steven Holl is in the lead. Who do we think will take home the award?

El Premio Pritzker 2010 será anunciado este Domingo 28 de marzo – @archdaily sostiene una encuesta al respecto y Steven Holl está a la cabeza de las preferencias. ¿Quién cree que se llevará el premio a casa este año?

Mi Opinión: desde hace más de un año sostengo que ya es hora de otorgarle este galardón al gran Cesar Pelli – no entiendo cómo aún no está entre los galardonados; suelen comparar al Pritzker con el Nobel y si es por injusticias, la comparación me parece válida.

Architizer: Created for architects, but built for the design addict

Wouldn’t it be great to have a database of contemporary architecture? A site where you could view photos of Roger Sherman’s 3-in-1 House, learn more about the firm Office 42, or locate Standard Architecture’s (not so) Hidden House?

Architizer to the rescue. The new site aspires to «redefine how architects show their work to the world.» It’s Facebook-for-architects, meets Linked-In, with a good dose of Google Maps. And while architects might be the target audience, design enthusiasts will surely enjoy lurking. If you’re shopping for an architect, you can scope out firms — or simply get lost looking at all the work
