Gucci Spring 2010

Why is out there so many blogs about fashion, style... if you go into the bloglovin' site the most popular post are hundreds and hundreds daily-look-type blogs with a copy cat of the same style in every post all the time... Recently fashion industry saw the impact of this sites in the society and they put them in the front raw of the cat walk... the industry is changing but I think that more than ever internet has popularized fashion and style. I remember me being young going to the first ZARA that was opened in my city and I was the only of my friends that was going shopping with his mother... nowadays teenagers have a sense of style dramatically elevated... and the reason is that is not anymore VOGUE who dictates what it is on or not... is the NET which says what is style in the XXI century... this fashion clones that we see in the streets have been created by this culture of one-day-look and this compulsive obsession of pretending to be different, original and alternative.

I believe in...

Christofer Nolan....

my new religion, the genius of contemporary film-making, the god of the XXI century

Nolan was born in London, the son of an English father who worked as an advertising copywriter and an American mother who was a flight attendant.[2][3] He spent his childhood in both London and Chicago. Nolan found an interest in botany and "dicots" early on until he found his father's camera. He began film-making at the age of seven using his father's Super 8 camera and his toy action figures.[4] While living in Chicago as a child, he also made short films with future director and producerRoko Belic.

Nolan was educated at Haileybury College, an independent school at Hertford Heath in Hertfordshire, England, and later studied English literature at University College London while filming several short films in the college film society. The first, Tarantella, was shown in 1989 on Image Union, an independent film and video showcase featured on PBS. Another notable short film was called Doodlebug with Jeremy Theobald who later starred in Following.

Una entrada muy interesante en Plataforma de Arquitectura


I remember being told in my second year of carreer that the facades comes from the form, language and program of the building... but after my experience in professional Architecture, that is almost impossible now. In order to win competitions or to convince the client of your work architects create atractive skins to cover a non succesful building. More than ever we have to improve our composition habilities and knowledges of material properties... Anyway, at the end those who haven't use the facade to cover theirselves are the best projects: sincere and honest.

Capilla Valleaceron by S-M.A.O.

The chapel at Valleaceron is part of a larger project undertaken by the Madrid based architecture team of Sol Madridejos Fernandez and Juan Carlos Sancho Osinaga. The architects’ wish to respond to the natural settings with their trademark planar forms resulted in a design that cuts planes, or seemingly folds them, into sharp triangular surfaces that are like sculptural projections on the horizon.

It feels as if any surface could act as another, but their genius is in deciding how to use each in a subtle play of angles that tricks the eye into seeing single surfaces in many and vice versa.

According to Sancho and Madridejos, this is not purely for atmosphere. They explain that the ‘trapped direct light’ is an inherent part of the design, functioning as ‘an additional plane’ and taking on ‘the role of a second material’, a material, they add, ‘that contrasts with the concrete, being fragile, changing, mobile, unstable; dominating or vanishing’. While many spiritual structures have a special relationship with light, this determination of the natural element as intrinsic to the structure also demonstrates the architects desire to connect with the natural environment, especially as atmospheric changes are so readily perceptible on the hillside setting.
