Montevideo y el Grupo de Estudios Urbanos: La Reinvidicación de la Ciudad : Monográfico Categoría 3

Loading...
The book covers the history and memory of the Grupo de Estudios Urbanos (GEU). Founded in 1980 and developed into a privileged interlocutor of the urban and economic policies of the last part of the 20th century, the GEU also should be considered as a key episode in the necessary enlargement the battle for civil rights. In this sense, to revisit GEU not only means to account for recent history, but also to discuss the present and lay solid foundations for the future. The book won the Premio Julio Vilamajó in the category "Mutaciones de Significado" in 2012.

Paulo Mendes DA Rocha: Entre Ideas y Dibujos

Loading...
This book revolves around the drawings and scale models especially selected by architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, who was conferred the degree of Doctorate Honoris Causa by the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in 2009. The personal selection done by PMdR resulted in a publishing project that included the participation of a group of academics from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina convened so that, by means of short texts, freely elaborated their perspective on those drawings. The book is, therefore, the result of a collective work whose purpose is to think the architecture from its most common resources: drawing and scale model. PMdR has also contributed with a text specially elaborated for this publication.
