Architecture as Cultural Identity: A Town in Bolivia Gets Bold & Bright

13 hours 40 minutes ago
[ By SA Rogers in Architecture & Cities & Urbanism. ]

Whether you love it or hate it, the divisive architectural style taking over the Bolivian city of El Alto is certainly a departure from the norm, injecting bold shapes and colors into an otherwise average cityscape. Local architect Freddy Mamani, who has spent the last 18 years developing the signature style he calls “Nuevo Andino” (“New Andean”), felt that El Alto was too “monochrome.” Each of his buildings is like a unique sculptural work of art aiming to enliven the city and pay homage to ancient indigenous motifs of the area.

3XN has designed a new multipurpose arena on the site of the former Olympic cycling track stadium in Munich’s Olympic Park. The Copenhagen-based firm was awarded the contract with German landscape and urban planning firm LATZ+PARTNER to design an 11,500-capacity arena that will serve as the home of German ice hockey champions Munich Red Bulls and German basketball champions FC Bayern Munich.

Manifesting as an oval structure, the sports arena “naturally and respectfully melds into the world-famous Olympic Park with its many iconic buildings.” A green roof combines with a façade of vertical lamellas to allow the scheme to blend with its urban context, with breaks in the lamellas forming glass-paneled entrances.

Josep Lluís Mateo, director de Quaderns: “Unveiled Affinities: Quaderns in Europe” 

22 hours 6 minutes ago

Se inaugura  en el Col.legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya en Barcelona la exposición “Unveiled Affinities: Quaderns in Europe” (“Afinidades descubiertas: Quaderns in Europe”) que se centra en la contribución de Josep Lluís Mateo como editor de la revista Quaderns d’Arquitectura i Urbanisme (1981-1990) en la transformación del pensamiento arquitectónico, mostrando la influencia de la revista durante este periodo en una generación de estudiantes de toda Europa, ahora arquitectos de renombre.

De 1981 a 1990, Josep Lluís Mateo dirigió Quaderns d’Arquitectura i Urbanisme en una época en la que la revista se convirtió en un referente internacional, abriendo un espacio de debate sobre el diseño arquitectónico y mostrando arquitecturas y sensibilidades estéticas hasta entonces desconocidas en Europa.

Este nuevo enfoque fue reconocido por los premios ACCA (Associació Catalana de Crítica d’Art, 1981), Laus (1985) y Laus ADG (1981), Ciutat de Barcelona (Artes Plásticas, 1984), y por el premio otorgado por la Unión Internacional de Arquitectos (UIA) en la Bienal de Sofía de 1990.
