    Resumen
    Although many cases of the so-called Cancel Culture in the American and British colleges and are taking place nowadays, social science researchers claim for a better understanding of the phenomenon and a clarification of the concept. In this context, cultural perspectives can be an interesting tool to illuminate facts and meanings. This paper tries to contribute to this debate introducing theoretical aspects as well as case studies from the Hispanic context. To achieve this goal, first three different approaches to the Cancel Culture (critical, institutional, and moral) are explained. Then, we examine the role of social media and the new fear of isolation, connecting Cancel Culture with the classic theory of the spiral of silence (Noelle-Neumann, 1974). We complement the theoretical discussion with an exploratory work on cases of Cancel Culture in different Hispanic countries. Observing characteristics of those cases we can conclude that they do not follow the traces of the Anglosaxon world, but they share some aspects of the culture of fear in the new digital context. This is the first academic work in this field for the situation in Latin America and Spain.

    Resumen
    With due interpretative caution and trying not to fall into simplification or cliché, it could be stated that the "rational" mind learns with "pure concepts" based mainly on the understanding of the essence and attributes of their objects of knowledge. The "logical" mind, on the other hand, learns to unravel the theoretical consequences of a formula within an abstract language. On its side, the "creative" mind of the designer acquires and achieves the object of knowledge -creativity- through a deep understanding of already completed designs. This paper aims to delve into the process of analysis of design examples, a process that could somehow resemble Alchemy, in which the alembic could be the pencil. Drawing is the analytical tool that allows the designer to distil the essence of the studied references departing from the overflow of images that arrive to the eye. With the gathering of different successful design examples, the designers build up a repository stocked in their memory that enlarges their creative capacity when facing new challenges.

    Resumen
    A finales de 1920, los arquitectos Sert y Torres Clavé encontraron en el espíritu del renacimiento, en el estudio de las revistas modernas europeas y en el contacto con Le Corbusier y los CIAM, la inspiración para hacer del GATCPAC un motor de nuevas propuestas en arquitectura, urbanismo y mobiliario en claves mediterráneas. Un joven Antonio Bonet, todavía estudiante, colaboró en este cometido para años después, entre 1938 y 1950, hacer renacer en Buenos Aires el espíritu vanguardista de sus años formativos. A través de la revisión comparativa de proyectos de diversa naturaleza ¿editorial, urbanística y en torno a la figura de Gaudí¿, desarrollados respectivamente por Sert y Bonet en sus particulares experiencias americanas entre 1938 y 1960, este artículo pretende descubrir paralelismos que contribuyeron al desarrollo de una modernidad mediterránea y trasatlántica, en la que la actitud de ¿renacer¿ fue reiterada.

    Resumen
    The leather industry is an example of circular economy, as it uses meat industry wastes (hides and skins) as raw materials. However, the process of tanning also produces a substantial amount of organic waste. This research project studies the case of a tannery located in Navarra, in the North of Spain, committed to a circular economy and environmental protection, which produces around 2 tons per day of leather shavings and buffing dust and 10 tons per day of discarded bullock hair. The study tackles the challenge of whether the discarded waste material might be used as a new resource for products or processes related with the building sector. Three different types of solid wastes (chromium free tanned shavings, chromium buffing dust, and discarded hair) were categorized and analyzed. The paper examines two proposals to reuse the weekly tons of leftovers (both shavings and hair) produced by the tannery, instead of taking them to an external composting plant or to the landfill. The first exploration path proposed to use the discarded material to obtain biomass for the company's thermal production plant. After establishing the calorific values of the discarded hair and the shavings, these were found to offer competitive value in comparison with the biomass products used at present, such as wood pellets. The second approach to the waste upcycling involved seeking new products in the building sector, acoustic panels in this case. After a mechanical behavior analysis, different bin

    Resumen
    The Biddle House is possibly one of the most iconic suburban houses in the Sotogrande resort. In this scattered American style urbanization, there are many large avenues, sports complexes and, above all, the traditional Andalusian architecture of the villas and farmhouses. And there you can find, apart from this house by Javier Carvajal, some other examples of rationalist architecture such as the golf club by Luis Gutierrez Soto, or a hotel by Jose Antonio Corrales. This article seeks to address the context and architectural analysis of the Biddle Duke family house. In it one can venture a dichotomy between the pragmatic and the poetic. Its compositional strategy revolves around a simultaneously classic and modern cloister, enshrined and at the same time filtered towards the landscape. This patio that articulates the whole project reaches here a poetic and almost monumental dimension, which is combined with the repetitive rationality of the succession of groin vaults. And this double condition impregnates the entire domestic space. There, the Mediterranean essence of the patio coexists with the rationalism of the modular grid; the austerity of the materials synchronizes with the poetry of the white volumetry of the vaults; and the sobriety of the finishes concurs with the formal purity of the arch work.

    Resumen
    The impetus of this project is to gain a historical perspective on some conflicting philosophical theories on perception and representation of space, and to trace a demo& method of representation, that has remained in use in some contexts. The research focuses on the tension between two sensory experiences: tactility and opticality. It is an interweaving of critical narratives to examine ways of perceiving space in the context of artistic and architectural practices. Departing from the optical understanding of space and materialized in some examples such as El Lissitzky's Proun Room, Yves Klein's The Void and Lebbeus Woods' tectonic visuality; this article focuses on the tactile spatial perception theories of the 'Situationists' and 'Surrealists', with their derive mapping techniques, their mediated history/memory of urban space and their approach to capitalism and systems of control. All of this is finally interpreted through the lens of the optical practice of holography, and its success (and failure) as a representational tool.

    Resumen
    From a symbolic and cultural approach to the social movements, framing theory has contributed to explain meanings and strategies for mobilization. Also, the theory has evolved in the media research, and media frames have to be also considered in the collective action. This paper clarifies how frames work in this context and describes their ability to give legitimization and congruence to the movement. The case of Black Lives Matter is an example of the use of framing and its consequences for the movement.

    Resumen
    The use of thermoelectricity in buildings represents a disruptive alternative for indoor thermal needs as it is a technology that allows the elimination of refrigerants. In this line of research, authors of this study have worked on the design and construction of several Ventilated Active Thermoelectric Envelope (VATE) prototypes. A VATE is an industrial-scale modular prototype designed to be installed in the building facade and thought to be an alternative solution for heating and cooling in Net Zero Energy Buildings. Previous prototype modules have been tested to assess their heat power and performance in heating and cooling mode, which could be considered an initial approach towards the solution of designing VATEs that can be replicated. These works have resulted in an improvement of the COP of the system, the relationship of the Peltier cells and the ventilated facade, as well as with the interaction with photo-voltaic systems. However, the problem of the thermal bridge when the VATE was turned off remained. Taking into consideration the lessons learned from previous construction solutions, the system has been redesigned, prioritizing in this case the reduction (not elimination) of the VATE thermal bridge. This article describes and justifies the solutions developed, presents the results achieved for heating and cooling, and raises points about what could evolve from this issue. (C) 2020 Elsevier B.V.

    Resumen
    It is one hundred years since the birth of Cano Lasso (1920-1996), an outstanding figure among the masters of modern Spanish architecture. Deserved winner of the Gold Medal (1991), his work has had a lasting international impact 1. He has received prizes and awards, and enjoys considerable recognition 2 by the general public. The reasons for this success could be due to a work of quality that has been produced over an extensive period of time and geographical location, which, with different accents, never loses intensity in its approaches. And this continuity is based on an unprejudiced confidence in modernity and tradition under the prism of a humanistic vision of the world and of spiritual progress. His attitude of asceticism and austerity knows how to delight in the gifts freely offered by nature, while respecting it. His example is timely in facing the current challenges of contemporary design. This text takes a look at drawings and aims to highlight their values of essentiality and timelessness. At a time when the visual culture of form seems to be heading towards parametric design, Cano Lasso vindicates "drawing" - without adjectives-as the ideal tool for configuring the architectural reality in the territory, with criteria of sustainability, efficiency and respect for the environment.

    Resumen
    A finales de la década de los treinta, alejándose del conflicto bélico que se había desatado en España y del que se presagiaba en Europa, Antonio Bonet llegó a Buenos Aires decidido a liderar la vanguardia arquitectónica. Para ello contaba con su formación moderna junto a Josep Lluis Sert en Barcelona y Le Corbusier en París y con sus experiencias en la corriente surrealista vividas en la propia capital francesa junto al pintor-arquitecto Roberto Matta Echaurren. Fruto de esta relación fueron los dibujos que el arquitecto catalán llevaba consigo al arribar a Argentina. Lo que se pretende desvelar en el artículo son las claves de la componente surrealista presente en el trabajo de Bonet de esos años a partir del análisis de los dibujos ¿algunos de ellos inéditos¿ y collages de época que le acompañaron en su viaje, intentando adivinar sus inquietudes y, por qué no decirlo, sus inevitables contradicciones.

    Resumen
    The task of developing a new teaching methodology to train young designers is not an easy one. Given the nature of the discipline, design education must deal with numerous complex and specific aspects in constant change: the mastery and management of creative processes; the balance between strong technical knowledge and good formal capacity; the tension between the application of industrial processes and the handling of artisanal techniques; the capacity to know the updated demands of a humanity in constant change; or the need to develop a rich - and critical - memory of project references. This, together with the current technological and digital paradigm, constantly changing, makes the formation of the designer a completely open debate. How, then, can a good design teaching strategy be designed?

    Resumen
    Bernard Rudofsky dedicó buena parte de su vida a explorar una manera de habitar personal y plena, lo que tuvo su reflejo en las numerosas exposiciones y publicaciones que alumbró. Y parte de ese proceso de investigación fue vertido en los diversos intentos de construir una casa para sí mismo y su mujer Berta, y que concluyeron con la construcción de `La Casa' en Frigiliana a principios de los años setenta. La presente investigación revela por vez primera las vicisitudes que rodearon el hallazgo del lugar y su posterior adquisición por parte del matrimonio a través del testimonio de Rudofsky anotado en uno de sus diarios personales. El artículo reconstruye con detalle la peripecia del matrimonio en España en 1969 al cotejar y extraer la información manuscrita en las 144 páginas de las que se compone este documento, información que no ha sido tratada con anterioridad. El episodio encierra un interés triple: en primer lugar, el del registro histórico de este suceso singular y el importante papel jugado por esta construcción en clave biográfica; en segundo lugar, el del encuentro del arquitecto extranjero con la España de la época ¿y que por tanto permite evocar a lo que pudieron enfrentarse algunos otros casos semejantes; por último, cabe destacar la singularidad de un proceso de proyecto que incluye el lugar en un estadio intermedio y que precisamente pone de relieve la intensa relación existente en este caso entre la casa, el entorno, el habitante y diseñador, y el habitar.

    Resumen
    In a period marked by scarcity and economic difficulties, Spain opted for the realization of a large health plan that would affect every Spanish geography, called the Health Facilities Plan. Promoted by the Government of the time, the construction of a health network based on the construction of hospitals and clinics was proposed, in the image and likeness of the modernity of American buildings. More than a hundred large hospital complexes were built quickly, but at the same time was insufficient. In less than a decade, about thirty new hospitals and clinics were already part of the urban complex of Spanish cities. The development of the plan lasted four decades, which was marked by instability in the execution of the projects, and by the technical, economic and political effort involved.

    Resumen
    The essay discusses the core ideas that inspired the recovery of "academic drawing" in the Spanish Schools of Architecture during the 1970s and 80s, as well as the contradictions that constituted this academic endeavour. Thus, it neither focuses on the different theoretical approaches to drawing, perception, creativity or to the architectural project, which characterized those years, nor historizes the beginning of the Departments of Graphic Expression and its main characters. On the contrary, the paper investigates the diverse causes that inspired the protagonist role of drawing in the Spanish Schools of Architecture, which soon extended to the architectural production at large. In this sense, it positions itself beyond the graphic aspects of drawing to constitute a reflection on the architectural discipline, the transmission of architectural knowledge, and the role of the Schools of Architecture in the last quarter of the 20thC.

    Resumen
    With the arrival of modernity, treatises and manuals were abandoned, giving way to histories, narratives, stories that could explain and justify the approach and formal evolution of buildings. The role of photography in this context became fundamental. In 1935, the Austrian photographer Margaret Michaelis captured, through a series of photographs, the recently inaugurated weekend homes in the Garraf, designed by the GATEPAC architects Josep Torres Clave and Josep Lluis Sert. The study of these images allows us to value the contribution of the work of the catalan architects in their interest in carrying out modern architecture with references to the popular and rural Mediterranean architecture. Through the construction of 3 weekend homes, defined from the combination of the same recognisable elements, the architects configured an architecture, that today can only be visited in Margaret Michaelis ' s photographs. The aim of this work is to contribute to the recovery and enhancement of her point of view, anonymous and scarcely recognised until the time. Published in the magazine A.C: Documentos de Actividad Contemporanea-exhibited after Gropius or Helen and Szymon Syrkus works- only some of these photographs will travel in time and become a reference of interest among architects in the following decades, until our days. The current state of the buildings, and the remarkable changes on their configuration and context nowadays, make the photographs taken in 1935 a relevant testimony for the historiography of modern architecture, and can be considered its last reality.

    Resumen
    Researchers have spent decades exploring strategies for reducing energy consumption in buildings worldwide, proposing passive solutions and optimizing active systems. However, no breakthrough technology has been developed. The use of thermoelectricity in buildings for heating, cooling and ventilation has been proposed as an alternative solution to many systems anchored in our day-to-day. This paper seeks to classify, analyze and summarize the possibilities of the thermoelectric technology integration in buildings. The results obtained from the search were divided into two main groups: systems that are integrated in the building envelope and non-integrated systems that operate independently. Among the analyzed parameters, on the one hand the characteristics of the prototypes' components needed for the construction were described. On the other, the thermoelectric specific parameters required for optimization under the operating scenarios' conditions were studied. The results of most of the studies showed that even though the technology can provide the comfort conditions, still the performance of these systems is not competitive compared to conventional vapor compression systems. However, the advantages of thermoelectricity such us the non-use of refrigerants or the high durability, makes this technology an alternative solution to consider, of which interest is growing in line with recent studies.

    Resumen
    The need for tools to achieve a higher level of competitiveness and profitability has made management systems an important partner for construction companies. The environment in which construction projects are developed is dynamic, mainly characterized by complexity, uncertainty, interdependence, nonlinearity, ambiguity and speed. This research adopted a deductive reasoning in two phases: Literature Review and Interviews. The first phase was focused on underlying the crucial current issues that impact on Construction Site Management and the relationships among Project Management, Construction Site Management, Systems Thinking and Complexity Theory. The second phase was carried out so that practitioners validated the research result. The result of this study is a conceptual framework of requirements, influencers and enablers to support General Contractors in developing their Project Management Systems.

    This paper presents part of the research carried out on some architectural drawings associated with industrial design in Spain during the 50s. The selection of these was made in the context of the research team in which we participate about the SEDI group (Society of Industrial Design Studies) and all of them come from the COAM¿s file. These are professional drawings by Javier Feduchi Benlliure (1929-2005), among them some of the elaborated ones for the project of pavilion for the VIII Trade Fair of Bilbao in the year 1957. We also present unpublished drawings prepared for other fairs or exhibition elements. Through these graphical analyses, we will document their participation in the elaboration of architectural drawings linked to industry and industrial design, as well as the graphic characteristics that accompany the way of understanding and representing these types of projects.

    Resumen
    The strategies for thermal regulation and environmental control found in nature are countless. In this article, a parallelism between animals and building energy systems is defined in order to identify and emphasize the immediate opportunities that biomimicry offers for future research. The motivation was the need to find alternative solutions to tackle problems mainly in the efficiency of heating, ventilation and cooling systems. Due to the wide range of possibilities offered by animals, this study is largely limited to the strategies that cold-blooded animals have developed through evolutionary adaptation to the environment. The method used for the analysis is based on a solution-based approach. Firstly, different animal thermoregulation strategies are defined (biological domain). Then the strategy is analyzed and classified into three categories. This classification is essential in order to formulate the parallelism with building systems (transfer phase). The final step is to identify the potential implementation (technological domain). This approach has been seen to be useful in creating new research opportunities based on biomimicry. In addition, suitable solutions arising from multidisciplinary team research are presented as promising answers to the challenges that building energy systems face nowadays.

    Resumen
    In 1959 the renowned luxury firm Loewe decided to transform and renew its image and chose architect Javier Carvajal to accomplish the task. In facing the design of these stores, he found that the strategic equipment he had developed in the projects he had done until that moment, was here totally useless. Nonetheless, the architect dealt with the commission in a thorough definition process, with the same resolve of formal control he used in previous ones. Beyond the general plans of the stores, the interiors, furniture and details were drawn by his own hand, 1 to 1 scale most of the times. Constructive relations between elements and materials were established with total precision. Each and every joint, detail, attachment and screw was gathered up in a set of uncompromising drawings, pure graphic orders that composed a sort of virtual construction, born to avoid any error range.

    Resumen
    In a Europe that became a territory of ideological dispute in the fifties,propaganda campaigns would play a decisive role. The well-known American economic relief plan -The Marshall Plan- would also launch an ambitious program of exposition. Given the general devastation conditions of the Old Continent, the model of itinerant exhibition,in which continent and content are moved together from one place to another, emerged as a propaganda system of enormous efficiency and greater capacity for impact. A practice that had been rehearsed before in the American country itself, but that would be developed with superior intensity by Peter G. Harnden, the main actor and designer of these propaganda campaigns. The text that follows tries to describe the episode, in order to shed its particularities because, and as the article concludes, some of the features that define the phenomenon will accompany some of the most notable practices of the discipline throughout the subsequent decade.

    Resumen
    Through four books on architecture and the visions of form championed by their authors, this article aims at a heterodox, inclusive and complex mode of seeing modern form: the open discourse. Defended by few architects at this date, this approach radically differed from the familiar stylistic or iconographic one. Through it, form no longer had to adapt to the invariably pre-established codes of the so-called "modern style" and rather emerged from the specific reality of each architectural project, which is precisely where its modernity lies. The four books are: Der moderne Zweckbau (1923) by Adolf Behne; Die Neue Baukunst (1929) by Bruno Taut; Der Sieg Des Neuen Baustils (1927) by Walter Curt Behrendt; and Gli elementi dell'architettura funzionale (1932) by Alberto Sartoris.

    Resumen
    This article will study the research work done on the rural architecture by Erwin Heilbronner during his stay in Ibiza. After his contact with the Central European circles of art and architecture, the German architect and painter found in Ibiza something more than a refuge. Once arrived and installed, Heilbronner started to visit the rural areas of the Balearic Islands, always carrying his camera and notebook, carrying out an exhaustive analysis of the peasant houses scattered throughout the territory. His graphic, photographic (partly unpublished) and written discourse about the island's rural architecture, can be considered one of the first typological studies on this particular Mediterranean architecture in modern terms. Based on the reference to some of those theories on typology written during the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century - Quincy, Argan, Rossi, Moneo, Forty, ... -, this article seeks to assess the value of Heilbronner's contribution between 1935 and 1936. No cabe duda, de quela empresa teórica se encuentra en sus contribuidores, quienes permiten el debate, el intercambio y la evolución de los postulados. Los tiempos han cambiado. Lo mismo que a finales del s. XIX se intuía el cambio con la aparición de la ¿maquina¿, hemos observado desde el s. XX la parición de lo ¿digital¿. En un tiempo principalmente digital parece lógico preguntarse si el debate teórico se reducirá al mundo académico o si se están rebasando esas barreras. Si el campo demanda,

    Resumen
    Drawing has always been considered an instrument subordinated to the ultimate object of architecture: the real construction of the building. However, since the foundation of the discipline in the fifteenth century, this relationship has sometimes been questioned, altered, and even inverted, coming to confuse reality and its representation. Through the study of the Museum of Roman Art of Merida, by Rafael Moneo; the first urban projects carried out by Ricardo Bofill in France at the beginning of the 1980s; and the restoration project of the Chapel of San Isidro developed by Javier Velle's between 1986 and 1990, this Artículo delves into the last episode of this phenomenon. Due to the effort of its authors to carry out the liberal exercise of the profession, by means of the restitution of their specific instruments, these architectures would be conceived through the drawing, and it is possible to appreciate in their configuration the same types of illusions of the drawing. These works suggest a wish to bring reality closer to representation, transfering something pictorial to something stereotomic, and materialize those illusions previously deposited on the paper, with the techniques that made possible the physical building of architecture. Eventually, these works reveal the desire of its architects to build the drawing, but, ultimately, they will come to highlight the continuities and incompatibilities between the architecture trapped in the paper; and the production system that make it possible.

    Resumen
    The purpose of this paper is to rethink the methodology of teaching freehand analytical drawing and the approach in which to incorporate technology and new graphic tools, exploring attractive forms of learning that can be combined with the traditional ¿workshop¿ model that remains effective, although current health circumstances have put it in crisis. The aim is to contribute with our experience of freehand drawing through a renewed ¿sketching club¿ model adapted to the learning objectives. The group that learns to draw is enriched by the spontaneity of those who join simply for the pleasure of drawing and because of the interdisciplinary character that this incorporation brings. The sketching club model, with more than 200 years of existence, lost its prestige due to its elitist character, among other reasons. For some years we have been exploring the possibility of incorporating this figure, in a complementary way into formal learning, because it meets the appropriate conditions to enrich the experience of learning drawing in the current context. The mission is to test its effectiveness with groups of sketchers, who draw as a hobby, transversal in nature and spontaneously incorporating the new digital tools. An experience based on the conviction that skill in the practice of annotation and conceptual sketching and the capacities involved in it, intervene in the development of creative processes from the idea to its formalisation.

    Resumen
    The following investigation presents a theoretical framework regarding the concept of fashion activism, a historical overview of its presence during the social and political movements of the past 100 years, and an analysis of corporate activism in the fashion industry. The cases studied in this article were originated mainly in the United States and the United Kingdom, though all of them acquired global character. Social media has become a key element for the transformation of fashion activism throughout the past century, magnifying the visibility of the movements and increasing the participation of public figures like brands and designers. The paper concludes with the fundamental role of fashion in the public opinion and leaves with unanswered questions regarding its true impact and commitment for social issues.

    Resumen
    The use of drawing as a form of language has always been linked to the history of humankind; at the same time it has been one of its basic development tools, being the very trigger of creativity. Relegated many times to a tool plane at the service of the arts, in the case of architecture, it is not only the indispensable path to make art real ¿ it is also in charge of safeguarding it, thanks to the efforts applied and progress made in the area of architectural heritage. Architecture is the creation of humans, bringing greater knowledge about the history of civilisations; its constructed works constitute a very large segment of enclaves declared to be world heritage sites. Given the value of the architectural drawing as a previous `iteration¿ of the built works (and subsequent recreation of many missing works), with this article, we propose to rethink this quality of drawing as an essential component of the architectural works. Through analysis of its techniques, its characteristics and its qualitative and stylistic content, we aim to establish whether this medium meets conditions to qualify, in certain cases, as part of humanity¿s cultural heritage.

    Resumen
    Con la oportuna efeméride del centenario del nacimiento de la Bauhaus se planteó un proyecto coordinado entre varias asignaturas para los alumnos de 2o curso del Grado en Diseño de la Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Navarra. Con el Ballet Triádico dirigido por Oskar Schlemmer en 1923 como referente principal, se proponía la elaboración de un evento performativo real, diseñado conjuntamente entre los cincuenta y tres alumnos que componían el curso y representado en el espacio de la propia Escuela. Un proyecto docente que daba la oportunidad de ensayar con los alumnos modos de trabajo colaborativo entre distintas disciplinas creativas y áreas del diseño, encontrar en el espacio fronterizo entre ellas caminos de innovación artística y experimentar con la propia Escuela de Arquitectura como espacio de interacción, intercambio y generación de ideas de proyecto.

    Resumen
    El objetivo de este artículo no es otro que el de estudiar y valorar el trabajo fotográfico personal de Le Corbusier en su periplo sudamericano de 1936 y su comparación con algunos otros arquitectos, artistas o fotógrafos del momento ¿principalmente los anteriormente citados¿, que también contribuyeron a través de la fotografía en el campo de lo moderno en este mismo periodo. Además, esta contribución investigadora tratará de subrayar la importancia que la fotografía adquirió en la construcción del movimiento renovador arquitectónico, a través de su uso de manera más útil y personal. Al mismo tiempo que pone de relevancia el papel fundamental de la sugerente realidad brasileña ¿ejemplo sudamericano¿ como referente de significado. La visita a Rio de Janeiro provocaría la deriva de Le Corbusier hacia una utilización de la técnica fotográfica en una dimensión más sensorial. Algo que en consecuencia le obligaría a debatirse contrastadamente entre los ejemplos representativos del desarrollo tecnológico y aquellos ejemplos derivados precisamente del subdesarrollo ¿dos extremos claros y protagonistas en este trabajo¿. Las fotografías simbolizan por lo tanto la re-experimentación en primera persona que Le Corbusier realizó de su propia contribución teórica.
