El compás y la cámara

Estudios sobre Fritz Lang. 

Autor: Manuel García Roig

Colección: La cimbra 14

Muy probablemente el oficio de cineasta sea el que guarda mayor similitud con el oficio de arquitecto pues ambos, tanto en la realización de una película como en la ejecución de un proyecto, contienen una dimensión artesanal basada esencialmente en la precisión y el cuidado por el detalle.

Entre(vistas) arquitectónicas

Autor: Octavio Mestre

Colección la cimbra 13

Esta selección de Entre(vistas) arquitectónicas tiene como finalidad mostrar y establecer un conjunto de miradas cruzadas o enfoques periféricos, a través de unos textos que intentan captar las sinergias creadas entre varias disciplinas afines, pues es importante que la arquitectura salga de los confines de su ejercicio cotidiano: una arquitectura ensimismada no sirve, ni siquiera a nosotros mismos.

NUNONINA, a success story from the Professional Reactivation Programme, from ARQUIA/SOCIAL by María Varona and Mónica Huang

Nunonina focuses on designing unique panels with acoustic characteristics for walls/ceilings and textile elements that divide spaces, made of high quality raw materials, such as wool, felt, silks and other textiles, which are worked by hand with traditional techniques in different phases of their execution. They are not technical elements of acoustics with common industrial textile materials, but rather unique custom pieces, which will not only have a technical function to improve the acoustic conditions of a room in terms of ambient noise, but also a clearly ornamental and artistic purpose.
