Arquia/thesis 34: "Architecture from the inside, 1925-1937"

No. 34 of the arquia/thesis collection "La arquitectura desde el interior, 1925-1937" (architecture from the interior), María Melgarejo, is on sale. In 1925, when Le Corbusier proclaimed from the L'Esprit Nouveau pavilion in Paris: "The furniture here does not add its possible architecture to an immobilised architecture. It is architecture in itself", a new way of doing architecture was established, based on its interior. This work was stopped at that time and special attention was paid to the contribution of Charlotte Perriand and Lilly Reich.

Formwork 9: "La Ciudad es de todos" (the city belongs to everyone)

No. 9 from the Formwork collection, "La ciudad es de todos" (the city belongs to everyone), Paulo Mendes da Rocha is on sale Perhaps the only value of these texts, reflections of older architects, is certain revealing content for younger generations. The ones that must continue. Some words about the reasons for and, above all, emotions related to the extraordinary experience of building, of transforming nature, for the idealised creation of your habitat. The will and the urgency to build the "city for all", always transforming. Being bound to a time of art, science and technique makes architecture a peculiar form of knowledge. Thanks to the formation of a new awareness of nature that is currently occurring worldwide and in a popular way, architecture schools and their teaching open new horizons in the field of universities. A hope for the future. Paulo Mendes da Rocha
