Architect, museum curator, and industrial designer Emilio Ambasz is renowned for projects that fuse architecture and landscape -- high-rise buildings enveloped in verdant screens of trees and plants, houses that virtually disappear beneath mounds of earth. His highly original work defies easy categorization and analysis, and Ambasz has himself presented his designs as springing from his deeply felt mythical and poetic desires, serving notice of his own uncomfortable fit with conventional critical categories.
In this penetrating collection of essays, prominent scholars and architects take up the challenge and set about rigorously "analyzing Ambasz." In addition to exploring his architectural work, the authors examine Ambasz's innovative industrial designs, including the Vertebra chair and dozens of other ingenious objects. Ambasz's curatorial work, particularly the seminal "New Italian Design" exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, is also discussed in an effort to fill out a complex picture of the man. Completing the volume is Sorkin's interview with Ambasz and Emilio, the self-described visionary and pragmatic sides of the designer's personality. Photographs and drawings accompany this lively debate that dramatically expands an understanding of Ambasz and his work.

Un drama que puede que no quedase resuel...

  • FELIPE URIBE DE BEDOUT. EN SECCION
    El trabajo de Felipe Uribe de Bedout se puede destacar por el buen manejo de la sección. Sus proyectos en planta se resuelven de un modo simple y funcional, pero la complejidad está en el detalle de los vacíos que busca para cada uno de los espacios. El libro expone esta forma de trabajo mediante maquetas en sección que permiten ver no solo la volumetría exterior, sino los resu...

  • TRANSPARENT ARCHITECTURE
    GILBERT, GORDON
    First used in the 15th century, the word transparent has origins in the Medieval Latin – transparere, meaning to show through. It’s original Latin derivation is trans + parere, meaning to show oneself. The projects in this book point to an architecture that seemingly suggests a multiplicity of qualities. Paradoxically, it is also an architecture that reveals itself and its own...

    La obra de los arquitectos Óscar Borasino y Ruth Alvarado se agrupan en esta monografía muy parecida a las siglas, no como una unidad indistinguible, sino como la adicción de dos identidades separadas y complementarias: OB + RA. Su herencia compartida y su diálogo constante les permite atar cabos sueltos en sus proyectos, desde la distribución del programa hasta la construcción...
