TO INTERPRET THE CONTEMPORANEOUS METROPOLIS: NOTES ON IGNÁSI SOLÁ-MORALES
* The legacy of Ignási Sola-Morales
The theory of architecture and urbanism faces the difficult task of struggling to make acknowledgeable the complexity of the modern city. In this sense, the legacy of the recently diseased history researcher and architecture theorist Ignási Sola-Morales arises as a sharp, generous and open perspective.
I clearly remember how the news that his heart yield in due to a stressful life strongly shook the architectural milieu.
Not expecting such a rigueur as that out coming from relatives and close relations, I dared, for three nights, having for company the motorway buzz, to organize a set of notes that the contact I had had with Solá-Morales writings personality granted me to take.
Besides an apparent sense of enigma, his work has the genuine capacity of describing the cartography and sharing the city in its contemporary complexity.
As this same article advances, we intend to show how the work of Ignási Sola Morales presents, in a generous, sharp and open way besides all the apparent enigma, the genuine capacity of cartographing and sharing the city in all its contemporaneous complexity."
