Presentation of the publication “The expression of weight”

The result of the contest “Fear of Columns” selected the proposal that materialized in the intervention “I do not want to change the world. I just want to express it”. In this same thread Martínez Santa-María now presents an essay on the architectural column and its spiritual significance. “The expression of weight shows the various paths that defy the constructive practice and the imperative logic of gravity. And it is extraordinary that architecture, which does not have the same freedom as painting or sculpture, nor that literature or music, demonstrates, in the same narrow margins that limit it, the value of the challenge it challenges and the paradoxical freedom that belongs to it.”
