F.L. WRIGHT – LOGICA PLANULUI

Cum am putea sa descifram mai bine gandirea unui arhitect decat din propriile sale scrieri ?

In 1928 au fost publicate sub titlul IN THE CAUSE OF ARCHITECTURE mare parte din scrierile lui Frank Lloyd Wright.

Incep reproducerea acestor texte cu partea referitoare la modul cum gandea marele arhitect american, cel care a „inventat” arhitectura organica, concepea structurarea planului.

THE LOGIC OF THE PLAN

PLAN ! There is something elemental in the word itself. A pregnant plan has logic – is the logic of the building squarely stated. Unless it is the plan for a foolish Fair.
A good plan is the beginning and the end, because every good plan is organic. That means that its development in all directions is inherent – inevitable.
Scientifically, artistically to foresee all is „to plan.” There is more beauty in a fine ground plan than in almost any of its ultimate consequences.
In itself it will have the rhythms, masses and proportions of a good decoration if it is the organic plan for an organic building with individual style – consistent with materials.

Centru Cultural Gloria

Cinematografia a comandat Universitatii Spiru Haret un studiu privind reabilitarea unor cinematografe existente in vederea conturarii unui concept unitar in modul de abordare a acestei actiuni de mare amploare. Au fost cuprinsi in proiect studenti din anii IV si V, o prima evaluare fiind facuta avand la baza cinematograful Gloria din cartierul bucurestean Titan.
Cu o parte din proiectele elaborate de studenti a fost organizata o expozitie in holul principal al Salii Palatului, la vernisaj participand si cunoscutul arhitect maltez Richard England.
Printre proiectele selectate pentru a fi expuse a fost si cel al studentelor Oana Nits si Florina Vlasceanu, pe care l-am apreciat ca fiind cel mai valoros. Oana si Florina mi-au fost studente in anul IV (anul universitar 2008-2009) si cateva dintre proiectele lor sunt prezentate la http://mystudentsprojectsgallery.wordpress.com/.
Ma bucur ca Oana si Florina au fost de acord sa le prezint proiectul pe blog si o fac aici cu mare placere.

ADOLF LOOS

Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect’s task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.

At the beginning of the nineteenth century we abandoned tradition, it’s at that point that I intend to renew it because the present is built on the past just as the past was built on the times that went before it.

Be not afraid of being called un-fashionable.
