Zones of Exclusion. Buenos Aires

El video del Bombardeo de Buenos Aires

El 16 de Junio de 1955 un grupo de militares y civiles opuestos al al gobierno popular del presidente Juan Domingo Perón intento asesinarlo y llevar a cabo un golpe de Estado. Durante este doloroso episodio, protagonizado por los apátridas de siempre, varios escuadrones de aviones de la Marina argentina, bombardearon y descargaron su metralla contra la Plaza de Mayo y la Casa Rosada. Como resultado más de 400 muertos y miles de heridos, como consecuencia una herida que aún persiste, y la génesis de una espiral de violencia que desencadenaría en la más oscura época que nos haya tocado vivir. 

El 16 de junio era un día gris y lluvioso. A las 12.40, varios escuadrones de aviones pertenecientes a la Aviación Naval, bombardearon y ametrallaron la Plaza de Mayo y la Casa Rosada.
La sorpresa del ataque hizo que el mismo cayera sobre la población, que realizaba sus actividades normales debido a que era un día hábil. Entre las primeras víctimas se contaron los ocupantes de los vehículos de transporte público de pasajeros. Un trolebús repleto recibió una bomba de lleno, muriendo todos sus ocupantes.
El saldo fue la muerte de 308 personasy más de 700 heridos.
El bombardeo es uno de los antecedentes directos del levantamiento cívico-militar que se produciría tres meses después, logrando deponer el 16 de septiembre al Presidente Perón e instaurándose la autodenominada “Revolución Libertadora”.


Asymmetries. Bisiluro Racing Car by Carlo Mollino

More than half a century after its debut, Chris Bangle, former chief of design at BMW, reviews the Bisiluro, the legendary but ill-fated racing car designed by Carlo Mollino for the 1955 Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
They say that the earliest design language for the primitive is that of repetition and symmetry. Regarding the design of “things that move”, history gives us quite a catalogue of proposals to improve the breed by echoing a form across some sort of bridging element. With names like “twinpod”, “twin-boom”, “twin-fuselage”, “doublehull”, or “catamaran”, the designer’s fascination with mirroring a good idea has been around ever since the Garden of Eden, when God decided two breasts looked seriously cooler than one.
Car Designers owe the origins of their craft to the hull-lofting techniques of naval architects, and while it is true that for centuries there have been parallel-hull designs for boats (from a Tahitian out-rigger to a divided hull that Da Vinci sketched), the real inspiration for modern twin-fuselage wheeled machines are the aircraft of World War II. (To be fair, the twin-boom Fokker M.9 was of World War I vintage.) Pilot and aircraft aficionado engineer Mollino must have been highly influenced by innovations from the War, and perhaps he knew that German engineers had prototyped a Messerschmitt Bf 109Z-1 “Zwilling” with a single pilot flying a two-fuselage fighter. Certainly, the sexy Lockheed P-38 inspired his generation of Car Designers as did the F-82 “Twin Mustang”, which was built from 1946 to 1953.


Zones of Exclusion. Estrella distante

Estrella distante is a fable about an impostor. A man with many names, many masks, many lives but with no other moral than the aesthetic. In Allende's time he appears with the name of Alberto Ruiz Tagle, a poetry enthusiast frequenting literary and poetic circles of a small Chilean town. But when the President is overthrown and the military appear in all their crudeness he becomes Carlos Wieder, the bloody and cruel soldier refined enough to make an art out of crime. The narrator of the story investigates the figure of Carlos Wieder, a pilot and so-called poet who acquires a shady fame writing threatening Bible verses with the smoke of his Second World War plane on Santiago de Chile sky and who exhibits the photographs of those e tortured and executed during Pinochet's coup in a display of action-art. In the climate of dictatorship, violence and confusion among the orgies of repression, he organises the exhibition of the photographs he took of his victims during and after their assassination. The confusion between violence, death and the aesthetic will embarrass Wieder superiors. After becoming an outstanding and devilish member of the Chilean avant-garde aesthetics, the murderer poet disguises himself, disappears and deceives time, although always maintaining a constant in his personality: the fusion between creation and violence, poetry and crime, moral and cynicism.

Tobias Rehberger's spiral bridge in Oberhausen

Click here for a Walk on the bridge

You worked with Schlaich Bergermann and Partner from Stuttgart, one of the most expert studios in the field of bridge engineering. 
I didn't know them at all. My contact was Mike Schlaich, with whom I discussed the technical possibilities. My idea of a spiral was inspired by the Slinky, the toy developed in the 1940s. Right from the start the two main elements were a black spiral and a colourful band for walking on that went through the spiral. We tried to make the spiral itself structural. Of course, that was a paradox as I'd chosen the spiral precisely because it's a very un-structural object. Despite our efforts, we had to give up on the idea because the spiral became such a monster in order to become structural. I insisted on the walkway running through the spiral and in the end Mike Schlaich came up with a structural solution: a slender, nine-centimetre-thick so-called Spannbandbrücke, which is a kind of upside-down suspension bridge. The aluminium spiral looks flexible, stressing that walking over the bridge is not just about going from A to B. You have other choices. It was more about combining the two spots on either side of the river with a certain kind of experience. (from Domusweb)
