La nave 17c ha sido asignada a Intermediae, nueva institución creada por el Ayuntamiento de Madrid para promover la creación contemporánea a través de un programa de becas e iniciativas que unirán la producción artística y la participación ciudadana. El proyecto nació con dos clientes muy definidos, por un lado el propio Ayuntamiento por medio de su Concejalía de las Artes y por otro Intermediae y sus condicionantes programáticos como futuro inquilino de la nave.

Desde el principio asumimos la intervención como una oportunidad para explorar las posibilidades de la rehabilitación. Casa das Caldeiras / João Mendes Ribeiro e Cristina Guedes.

Central hidráulica de Proaza

La intervención del arquitecto en las centrales hidroeléctricas constituye un ejemplo único dentro de la arquitectura española. La de Proaza puede considerarse como la que integra con mayor claridad ingeniería, arquitectura, pintura y escultura. La estructura, muy sencilla, ofrece una solución de cerramiento de superficie quebrada y desarrollable, que proporciona una gran rigidez al conjunto para contrarrestar los empujes longitudinales y transversales del puente grúa. A su vez, presenta un aspecto muy movido de planos que logran una gran integración paisajística. En el interior se dispone un espacio central de doble altura. Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.

The Auersperg palace is among the most important remnants of pre-baroque architecture in Ljubljana. For the experts it is also interesting because it stands on an interesting and protected archaeological site. While preparing to renovate the palace large-scale archaeological research was conducted here. The palace and the plot have a very rich history dating from the prehistoric period to Roman and medieval times. Each era added something to the building. Existing Palace The existing palace renovation kept the character of the bourgeois medieval palace, with its connected rooms and internal stone elements such as original columns, frames, fences, staircases and wooden carvings on the windows, doors and parquet floors. Extension It was suspected that under the courtyard and the internal atrium there were rich archeological remains.

Inujima Art Project, Japan. Rome’s Centrale Montemartini Museum – Gods among the Machines. The idea of re-purposing outmoded structures for cultural purposes is not a new one, but the marriage of industrial architecture and classical archaeology of the Centrale Montemartini Museum in Rome achieves a particular alchemy that is worth seeking out.

Rome’s Centrale Montemartini Museum – Gods among the Machines

Visiting the museum provides, as the curators so eloquently put it, an “Olympian calm,” a state of mind that is woefully missing at more well-known sites in the Eternal City. Here, classical sculptures co-exist beautifully with the vestiges of a thermoelectric plant, each stronger for the pairing, their artistry heightened by the visual dichotomy. Located just outside the Aurelian walls and close to the Tiber, the Art Nouveau building and its preserved steam turbines and diesel engines are worthy of the trip on their own merit.

Named for the engineer that designed the facility, the Centrale Montemartini was constructed on land purchased from a religious order and inaugurated in 1912. All photos © Ellen Ryan for Untapped Cities. La tempestad en el silo. La fábrica como escenografía. Artículo de revisión bibliográfica.
