Torres y Rascacielos, de Babel a Dubai en CaixaForum Madrid
Towers and Skyscrapers, from Babel to Dubai at CaixaForum Madrid

 

Una de las obsesiones más claras de la humanidad siempre ha sido la ascensión a los cielos, siempre asociada con conceptos como el poder, el dinero o el éxito.

Además, esta tendencia también ha sido siempre una solución habitacional para albergar a la mayor cantidad de seres humanos posible en un espacio reducido en planta. 

De la misma manera, los edificios religiosos de todas, o casi todas, las culturas, han asociado la altura con la cercanía a la divinidad y su acceso a ella.

Y finalmente, o no tanto, considerando la multiplicidad de lecturas que una exposición como esta puede tener, los rascacielos han sido siempre una especie de objeto sagrado para arquitectos, locos y soñadores que tan humanamente han querido tocar los cielos.

 

 

One of the most visible obsessions of mankind has always been the ascension to the skies, always associated to concepts such as power, money or success.

Also, this tendency has always been a housing solution to accomodate the maximum number of people in the minimum horizontal space.

In the same way, religious buildings from every, or nearly every culture, have associated height with closeness to the divinity and the limited access to it. 

And finally, or not, considering the multiplicity of interpretations that a exhibition like this can have, towers and skyscrapers have always been an object of desire for architects, mad men and dreamers who so humanely have wanted to touch the skies.
