乌拉圭,克里斯托奥禾洛教堂 / 埃拉迪奥•迪斯特

对于建筑界来说,(两次世界大战)战后是一段对建筑材料彻底重新认识的时期。设计的新探索为建筑创造了新的形体和空间,这个世界以前仅仅是梦幻追求的场景。这个时期实现了路易·康、埃罗·沙里宁,以及许多没那么出名的设计师。其中一个便是埃拉迪奥·迪斯特,来自乌拉圭的工程师和建筑师。20世纪60年代,他也对空间和物质提出新的问题。他的好奇心反映在他出生的国家完成的作品中。在他成功的职业生涯里,他设计了一些有趣的作品。由gonzalo viramonte拍摄的系列照片体验索迪斯特的作品提供了一个新的机会。这座20世纪60年代完成的改革式教堂在今天看来依旧梦幻而优美。让我们一探究竟。

埃拉迪奥·迪斯特钟爱使用简单材料赋予新的应用方式。自1990年的现代建筑,他说:“对于真正建造的建筑来说,建筑师要对其建造材料的本质和可能性怀着深切的敬意来使用它们。这有这样才能实现“宇宙经济”……同世界深奥的秩序协调一致;只有这样才能在过去的伟大作品中发现震撼我们的权威。”对建造在乌拉圭阿特兰蒂达的克里斯托奥禾洛教堂来说,砖是当时最理想的材料。砖价格低廉,在南美洲有悠久的土砖传统历史,迪斯特有许多技艺精湛的砖瓦匠帮他实现构思。这位建筑师将他对韵律的喜爱和对数学的严谨结合在一起,创造的作品非常有说服力。


for architecture, the post war period was a time of radical rethinking of materials. this new exploration of design created architecture with new shapes and spaces, the likes of which, the world had only dreamt of. this period realized the ideas of louis khan, eero saarinen, as well as many other lesser known designers. one was eladio dieste, an engineer and architect from uruguay. in the 1960s, he too was asking new questions about space and materiality. his curiosity is reflected in the projects he completed in his native country. in his successful career, he created some interesting works. this photography series by gonzalo viramonte gives a new chance to experience his work. this revolutionary church design from the 1960s remains equally fascinating and beautiful to this day. let’s take a look.

eladio dieste loved using simple materials in new thoughtful ways. in modern architecture since 1900, he said: ‘_for architecture to be truly constructed, the materials must be used with profound respect for their essence and possibilities; only thus can ‘cosmic economy’ be achieved… in agreement with the profound order of the world; only then can have that authority that so astounds us in the great works of the past._’ for the church of cristo obrero– constructed in atlantida, uruguay (just outside montevideo)– brick was the ideal material. brick is cheap and in south america, with it’s long tradition of adobe construction, dieste had many skilled masons to help him realize his vision. the architect combined his love of rhythm with his rigor for mathematics and the result is quite convincing.
