des d'aleshores tot és possible.

el teu ara, el meu ara i altres viatges en el temps

"Tu ahora no es mi ahora. Estás leyendo un libro. Estoy escribiendo un libro. Tú estás en mi futuro, aunque yo sé lo que viene después, parte de ello, y tú no.*

(...)

* 'Nada puede cambiar el final (escrito y archivado) de este capítulo', escribió Nabokov hacia la mitad de Ada. Obviamente, no era cierto cuando lo escribió."

de James Gleick (2017). Viajar en el tiempo. (trad.: Yolanda Fontal) Barcelona: Editorial Planeta, p. 275.

ductus cal·ligràfic

del llatí ducere, "conduir" o "dirigir"


"the book will kill the building"

"For Bann, there is a parallel to be drawn with Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame of 1831, which describes 'the long-term transition from a culture in which messages are transmitted by the emblematic façades of public monuments to one where individual creators take it upon themselves to re-create such public values through the medium of the written text' and culminate in a prophecy (...) to the effect that the public press will destroy the authority of the Roman church: 'Le livre tuera l'édifice', or 'The book will kill the building'."

blueprint i day-glo

"The common, then, is best understood not from a building perspective, as the ready implementation of a blueprint, but as a form of what Tim Ingold would call 'weaving', the negotiated, imminent emergence of sense through interactivity (Ingold 2000: 346)" (Cronin 2013: 138)





Blueprints are far more detailed and technical plans for your remodel or other construction project. The name ‘blueprint’ is derived from the material and the coating used to produce these plans in the past. The result of the printing process was the lines were white with a blue background. More recently blueprints smelled of ammonia which was part of the blueprint printing process. Today laser and inkjet printing technologies have enabled architects and home designers to create these drawings without use of the old “blueprint” printing processes and the blueprint name is a hold over from the past. Blueprints are usually drawn in either 18 x 24″ or 24 x 36″. A complete set of blueprints will include a floor plan, elevation drawings of each side of the structure, basement or foundation plan, including footings and bearing walls, a complete electrical layout, a framing plan, drawings of all plumbing and mechanical systems, cross section drawings of structural elements, a roof plan, and a plot plan.
