    A Celebration of Light and Transparency:

    El Croquis 171 delves into the vibrant world of Selgascano, the architectural duo comprised of José Selgas and Lucía Cano. Spanning their prolific decade from 2003 to 2013, this issue showcases their playful and innovative approach to architecture, characterized by a deep connection to nature, a love for translucent materials, and a unique sense of color and form.

    Beyond the Glass Walls:

    While Selgascano is often associated with their iconic tunnel-like glass office nestled in the woods outside Madrid, El Croquis 171 expands the perspective, revealing the breadth of their creative vision. The publication features over 20 notable projects, ranging from private residences and art galleries to educational centers and public spaces.

    Highlights of the Issue:

    • 55 Dwellings in Amsterdam: This vibrant housing complex demonstrates Selgascano’s ability to integrate architecture seamlessly into urban landscapes. The playful use of color and translucent materials creates a sense of community and vibrancy.
    • Casa La Canaria: This private residence in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, embodies the architects’ love for nature. The organic form of the house blends seamlessly with the volcanic landscape, while the use of glass maximizes the connection to the outdoors.
    • Eyewear Shop in Cartagena, Spain: This striking commercial space showcases Selgascano’s experimental approach to materiality. The shop’s facade is composed of stacked, translucent plastic discs, creating a mesmerizing play of light and color.
    • 13th Venice Biennale Spanish Pavilion: Selgascano’s contribution to the prestigious Venice Biennale was a captivating pavilion constructed entirely from stacked wooden logs. The installation served as a powerful metaphor for resilience and the transformative power of nature.
    • Renovation of Texas Square in Oranjestad, Aruba: This public space revitalization project demonstrates Selgascano’s skill in urban design. The square features playful pavilions, colorful walkways, and abundant greenery, creating a vibrant and inviting atmosphere for the community.

    Beyond just visuals, the issue delves into the core principles that define Selgascano’s architecture:

    • Dialogue with Nature: Selgascano’s buildings create a seamless connection between the indoors and outdoors, blurring the lines between built environment and natural landscape.
    • Transparency and Light: The architects’ love for translucent materials, like glass and polycarbonate, fills their spaces with natural light, creating a sense of openness and airiness.
    • Playful Experimentation: Selgascano is not afraid to experiment with bold colors, unconventional shapes, and innovative materials, resulting in unique and captivating architectural experiences.

    El Croquis 171 is a captivating journey into the world of Selgascano, offering a deeper understanding of their architectural philosophy and its impact on contemporary design. It is a must-read for anyone interested in nature-inspired architecture, light and color in space, and the endless possibilities of creative expression.

    Additional Tips:

    • Include quotes from Selgascano or other architects reflecting on their work to add depth and critical perspective.
    • Highlight their numerous awards and recognitions, showcasing their global influence.
    • Consider incorporating sketches and drawings, providing a glimpse into the early stages of their creative process.

    I hope this provides a solid foundation for your exploration of Selgascano’s work in El Croquis! Remember, your passion for their architecture will shine through, making it a truly captivating exploration of their unique and vibrant design ethos.
