Free download of arquia/thesis 01 "La Lección de las Ruinas" (the lesson of the ruins), Alberto Ustárroz


A lesson covering the special relationship that architecture, in thinking and practice, has established with ruins, i.e. with fragments of its Greek and Roman past: a past that is at the heart of the architectural tradition. Ruins of ancient tradition, which generate a Greek or Roman architectural thinking: thinking that does not disappear but that tirelessly changes appearance according to the works it produces at all times. Creative intersection — Ruins and present & mdash; resolving those and also architectures that originated over time, with which the author feels solidarity, to the extent that they serve to explain his own relationship with architecture.
