An Architecture of the Ozarks -- "I live, practice, teach, and build in northwest Arkansas, in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. It's a place considered to be in the middle of nowhere, yet ironically close to everywhere. It is an environment of real natural beauty and, simultaneously, one of real constructed ugliness. Abandonment, exploitation, erasure and nostalgia are all aspects of this place and are conditions as authentic as its natural beauty and local form. This land of disparate conditions in not just a setting for my work -- it is part of the work. By choosing to live and work here -- to call it home -- I've been able to get beyond the surface of things, to turn over the rock and discover the complex and rich underbelly of my place -- its visceral presences and expressive character -- that so informs and sustains my efforts. I am working from the conviction that architecture is larger than the subject of architecture." --Marlon Blackwell
Marlon Blackwell is a passionate polemicist. He's also a very gifted architect. The projects in this first monograph on the "radical ruralist," as touted by the Royal Institute of British Architects, offer a new architectural language that at once celebrate the vernacular and transgress the boundaries of the conventional. The results are -- we can't help it, there's no better word -- beautiful.
Incisive essays by David Buege, Dan Hoffman, and Juhani Pallasmaa and lush photography by Tim Hursley, Richard Johnson, and Kevin Latady explore Blackwell's projects, including his widely acclaimed Keenan TowerHouse, the award-winning Moore HoneyHouse, 2Square House, and Flynn-Schmitt BarnHouse, studios, and institutional buildings.


Marlon Blackwell has received national and international recognition for his residential projects. He teaches architecture at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

    "los relámpagos de lucidez que en un texto como este iluminan la compleja escena no pretenden convencer al lector de una determinada tesis, bien por el contrario, lo comprometen con el texto y lo obligan a una lectura reposada, encontrando a lo largo de ella momentos de lucidez que le harán sentirse próximo a lo que fue el drama de Mies. 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...
