metalocus, MELISSA SCHUMACHER.
The golden images in the latest series of IN TREATMENT [> 2] METALOCUS by Melissa Schumacher help us to say goodbye to our 2nd season of IN TREATMENT. This new series has been fantastic. The goodbyes always must be short, so soon until next season. j2b

The heart of the city of Munich contains beautiful architectural variety as a result of cultural influences typical of Bavaria and later centuries. Walking through the center of the city we can be juxtaposed between the old medieval city and the resulting urban and architectural modifications.

It's amazing to think that even though the city was bombed during the Second World War, Munich still retains a subtle nostalgia for the...

We discover the creative process of a competition presented internationally, involving architects of different nationalities. Francisco Peláez is the responsible of telling it us, as a part of an architecture office in Amsterdam, for a new episode of the second season of In Treatment [>2] - METALOCUS. jrs.

It was a hot June 15, 2010, a group of young architects from different nationalities and a contest to be clarified: "Competition for the Museum of World War II in Gdansk (Poland)". The illusion, desire and competitiveness took over each of us making the process of lubricating working machinery. During the early days we read and reread the bases, study, analyze and raise that city's environment and history of mostly industrial character. A triangular...

We don´t miss the sixth episode of Javier for In Treatment [>2] METALOCUS, he does a summary of the visits to various cities like Copenhagen and Vienna analyzing and sharing their architecture with us. A good contribution... S.C.

As I was already landed for first time in Denmark, I search for a Young Hostel and in the one I went I concurred with a nice people group formed by Alicante architecture university students. I remember that it was not only a coincidence we were architects and from Spain, even we knew a person in common. After having dinner together, I was telling them I was going to start working in JDS in two days. They offered to me the chance to go with them for a tour next...

BEST OF A CITY WITHIN ITS MARKETS.

metalocus, MELISSA SCHUMACHER.
After Easter we continue with the last chapters of IN TREATMENT [> 2] METALOCUS, Melissa Schumacher with great pictures brings us to one of the most important monuments of the city, "the market" In Treatment. Good reading. j2b.

Any travel guide will agree that one of the main tourist attractions to visit in any city will always be markets. These ancient commercial spaces represent the best culinary and cultural traditions of each region. In the markets there is the essence of a country and its people, their voices, sorrows and joys. The Pride of the shopkeepers and the curiosity of the visitors gave to markets the social characteristics of a civilization.

metalocus, JAVIER SANCHO ANDRÉS
As each Thursday, we continued with In Treatment [>2] METALOCUS. It is de turn of Javier, he analyzes the generated sensations to go into a park in Vienna in its seventh episode. I hope you enjoy it. S.C.

Dissonant, backlight contrasts of old lost views, words in concrete frozen, shouts in a loud hell time, of a big Hate, of huge incomprehension... And it didn't happened so much time ago, and also is still sadly happening.

The war determined their existence, columns of defending cult: From whom? From oneself, or the neighbor, from the humans... Tumults of scratches and color particles, graffiti from the time, survived with the...

metalocus, FRANCISCO PELÁEZ.
The third episode by Francisco Peláez for the second season of In Treatment[>2] - METALOCUS comes again from Amsterdam. He shows how it is impossible not to be involved from the beginning by the influence of the bicycle in the city, as a rider or not. jrs

How not to mention the cycling world having lived in Amsterdam? Getting to the train station of Amsterdam Centraal, turn your head ninety degrees to the right and find a series of ramps linked full of bicycles, is one of those indelible images that one rarely forgets. This great parking, a dock mode drenched channel works as a nursing staff transport thousands of people who for various reasons, mostly for his job, traveling by train to neighboring cities.

First Spring episode from New York. Storefront was already running from eighties but was the remodeling by Steven Holl, triggered that everyone wanted to visit that corner on 97 Kenmare Street.

You can perceive it in its streets, in its people, in its neighborhoods, in the number of photos taken per minute in each of its corners. A shot in New York City, from there to the rest of the world.

Being more specific, Manhattan, an island with...

Here let her In Treatment [>2] METALOCUS. SC.

The land is the key to development and preservation of the territory. Or at least those were the lessons I learned from the German urban planners. A concept that goes with our globalized era and is part of the specialty I’m taking in land management.
