A different city is possible

By Juan Domingo Santos

Something happened during the past years that ended up in destabilizing our relationship with the city and the cityscape. We have lived some time, from which it seemed that we would never wake up. A time when we witnessed an indecent waste and missuse, a merciless abuse of the power, we were made believe that everything is possible in exchange to nothing, time of an outrageous and limitless speculation, which concequences are still far from being measurable. Step by step, unnoticed, a wave of bad taste and corruption invaded us, and it is finishing off our landscapes and the memory of a place. Cancerous urban surroundings and never ending stripping of the identity, horrible housing estates abandoned in the countryside, intustrial zones and shopping centres in the middle of nowhere, the skyscrapers and residential establishments deserted due to overconstruction, crossing the limits of the sustainable and necessary, unexplainable buildings, out of scale and size next to La VegaWe have burried the cityscape of Granada, opening the door to a disproportionately ugly and unimaginetive city. Buy, sell, permute, requalify land or exchange units of urban use have been the usual procedures for constructing our city, without addressing a project that would protect the historical and landscape values of the place. We live in the era of ugliness and bewilderment, the era of urban planning agreements without money, a time of false promisses.

Photography workshop with Luís González Palma

Between the 4th and the 6th of November we took part in a workshop organized by Fotomata and conducted by a Guatemalan photographer Luis Gonzalez Palma, nevertheless we did not mention it here, as it seemed  it would have been impossible to transmit, even get close to, the extraordinary sensations we went through these days spent together. Last Saturday, by coincidence, we came across this photograph by Luís on the cover of a cultural supplement Babelia and we cannot avoid a small review of his work anymore.

The article by Anatxu Zabalbeascoa in The Country Weekly

The journalist and historian Anatxu Zabalbeascoa writes regularly on architecture in different media (newspaper, blog and weekly extra) related to the newspaper El País, contributing to better understanding and dissemination of the last works in this field as well as in the design. In “The Country Weekly”, October 9th, she wrote an interesting article entitled “Performance at the periphery” which reviews a number of exemplary interventions from the point of view of their “singularity” – a concept that is undergoing reformulation, seeking a new life with other values, solid and permanent, as transformation, research, price, maintenance, location, visibility, sustainability, etc.

San Telmo Museum in AV

Magazine Arquitectura Viva Select a picture has become our home for. Story belongs to the San Telmo Museum, San Sebastian, built by the architects Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano, has recently been opened. It is very gratifying for us now see the results of a study that has lasted long, and we have followed the work in its construction and have extensively documented the process. There have been many photographs-may- not be seen, contained in them but that would not exist otherwise. The virtuality of the works in progress generates unique time and space, on that one day we must reflect.

URUK overview on architecture 02 (04/11)

An Italian magazine/newspaper Uruk, from Palermo, with which we had established contact and cooperation, has published several articles of interest. We are particularly pleased with the presence of some works, projects and images that have been really important for us for many reasons. Whether because of the long collaboration with architects, the special relationship with some works or the load of personal content in some images, it has been very  gratifying to receive URUK in our studio, enjoy the reading and the Italian taste that is so close to us.

Among the articles published in this issue we highlight VS-UNIFORM UNIVERSAL JOINT, by Mark Scarpinato; GRANADA. Qal `at al-Hanro dedicated to Alvaro Siza and Juan Domingo Santos for the new access to Alhambra in Granada; CORDOBA. MADINAT AL ZAHARA dedicated to the museum built by the architects Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano, recently recognized with the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

This relationship has been established in a very special and satisfying way. I all started with the personal project “From the Monument to the City, From the City to the Ocean” that never stops surprising us.
