    The fall of the roof of the Huesca sports centre marks out a new course for the work of the architect Enric Miralles, concerned for the future and understanding that projects are never finished. After the collapse, a sequential voyage in time that comprised the final destiny of his work: the coverings of the Avinguda d'Icària (1991) -the project that followed Huesca (1988)- represented a new rising from the remains; Alicante (1993), the precarious assembly of these towards a possible redemption in the use and programme of a building that the constant movement of its users demands; and finally, Santa Caterina (1997), the inevitable collapse, reflection of both the programme and history of the place and the meaning of its name.

    This PhD Dissertation studies the process of construction of the modern Montserrat after the Napoleonic destruction of the old shrine-monastery and its disendowment in 1836, and shows how this process was not the reconstruction or restoration of the old destroyed monastery but the construction, or the "invention", of a new one. This process was initiated in 1844 when the shrine was reopened and was developed until the first half of the 20th century in parallel to the definition of the contemporary Catalonia and Spain. Therefore, and understanding the modern Montserrat is the result of the complex interaction between all the agents who are implied in its construction process, the dissertation addresses in eighteenth chapters the main themes and the individuals and groups who intervened in it. These eighteen chapters are in turn structured into five groups according to the major alterations in the equilibrium of influences between the agents involved in the process at each moment. The first group of chapters specify the ¿architectural, political and social- problems of the first works, as well as the decisive intervention of Victor Balaguer and his attempt to define a Montserrat symbol "for all" within the wide national and federal symbolic universe he created; an interpretation based on the romantic approach to the mountain defined in good part during Humboldt's visit in 1800. Balaguer's intervention was centered in the valuation of gothic architecture and in the first attempts to define an architectural project; but it was frustrated with the end of the reign of Amadeo I, and the federal dream. It was then when was defined the first culture of the catalanism, and when the "group of Vic" take a step and alter, with their "patriotic-religious campaigns", Balaguer's symbolic construction to their own advantage, what carried out the definition and valuation of Romanesque architecture, as well as the definitive popularization of the mountain. The second group of chapters, then, studies the intense symbolic construction of the mountain that takes place during the end of the 19th century as the consequence of the tensions generated by the campaigns of the "group of Vic". The construction of the rack-and-pinion railway, the rosary monuments, the panorama in the Exposition of 1888, the architecture of Gaudi and others, or the popular reproductions of the mountain, are some of the cases analyzed. The architectural consequences that this symbolic construction had over the construction process are analyzed in the third group of chapters that culminates with the general project defined by Puig i Cadafalch. That incorporates the unique mountain as an element of project and it goes well beyond the dilemma on styles. But despite the construction of this project was initiated, it was never completed due to the Spanish Civil War. The fourth group of chapters is only one chapter that makes a brief digression on Montserrat and the Western modern cultural construction of the mountain together with its relation with the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries' architecture. The fifth and last group of chapters returns to the chronological order and studies the process of construction during the first years of Franco's dictatorship, as well as the projects that were done then. And that failed due to the changes that took place after the "Enthronement festivities" of 1947; and that provoked the definitive wreck of the architectural construction of the modern Montserrat. Finally, the epilogue raises some of the most important questions the dissertation makes evident, emphasizing the importance that tourism and modern mass mediums had during all over the process, and how Montserrat, in a wider context, is a paradigmatic example of modern heritage-making processes. The annex contains the cataloguing ¿by the author- of all the documents forming the "Architectural Archive of Montserrat" and that, together with other materials, are analyzed in the dissertation.

    Esta investigación tiene sus bases en el análisis de la obra de Donald Judd como resultado de un desarrollo plástico inducido por una argumentación en contra de la representación del espacio ilusionista propio del arte occidental. Se utiliza la obra de Donald Judd para comprender cómo el rechazo a la perfección ilusionista de la visión centralizada de la representación, llega a traducirse en la presentación de la realidad como tal, paradójicamente estableciendo un retorno hacia el espacio de la ilusión. Se pretende en este estudio determinar las raíces previas en la historia del arte en relación con la problemática de la ilusión hasta llegar a la primera vanguardia del siglo XX, representada ésta por las propuestas de Malévich y Duchamp, para lograr así entretejer un escenario que nos lleve a reconocer a Judd desde una perspectiva poco usual en la comprensión de su obra. Finalmente se presenta una lectura entrecruzada de sus escritos, obras y contexto que nos permite puntualizar sobre los aspectos más relevantes acerca de sus ideales y creencias con respecto al oficio y el resultado de la obra final, que se manifiesta a través de su propia presentación física como una realidad inclusiva de ilusiones. Esto es, para ilusionarnos a través de la satisfacción del ojo en la experiencia multiplicada al presentarnos algo interesante que mirar.

    This research has its bases in the analysis of Donald Judd’s work as a result of the development of a work caused by an statement against the representation of the illusionist space proper of western art development. The intent of this study is to locate in the history of art the previous roots and their relationship with the issue of illusions until the first vanguard of the 20th century, represented by the proposals of Malévich and Duchamp, to thus manage to weave the scene that will takes us to recognize the work of Donald Judd from an unusual perspective in its understanding. The work of Donald Judd is used to understand how the rejection to the illusionistic perfection of the centralized vision of the representation goes so far as to be translated in the presentation of the reality itself to paradoxically establish a return towards the space of the illusion. Finally there is an intercrossed reading of his writings, works and context that will allow us to emphasize on the most important aspects of his ideals and beliefs with respect to the discipline and the result of his final work, that is pronounced through its own physical presentation as an inclusive reality of illusions. This is, to excite us across the satisfaction of the eye in a multiplied experience on having presented before ourselves something interesting to look at.

    La ciudad de la presencia: memorias, deseos y narrativas, tiene cuatro facetas:1. Afirmo que la ciudad globalizada se diferencia de la ciudad moderna porque las formas del mando y la acumulación se han modificado, por tanto, analizo algunas de dichas modificaciones para explicar la ciudad del presente como concepto y forma. Las teorías críticas usadas en tiempos de la ciudad moderna que incidieron en su configuración han dejado de ser operativas porque ya no corresponden a la ciudad del presente. Ciudad caótica no solo por la falta de nuevas teorías, sino por la aceleración de las relaciones capitalistas, el incremento de la población urbana y las prioridades del neoliberalismo. Las nuevas condiciones productivas han traído nuevos sujetos productivos, quienes asimilando las experiencias pasadas serán los encargados de transformar la ciudad globalizada en otra: solidaria, igualitaria y libertaria.2. Sostengo que las maneras de historiar la ciudad moderna no son adecuadas para la globalizada. A ésta ya no le interesa la historia por considerar que la misma habría llegado a su fin, en ella.Pensar e historiar la ciudad es tarea de los sectores sociales opuestos a los globalizadores, en una práctica intelectual que se apoya en el saber narrativo crítico de los nuevos sujetos históricos, quienes se mueven al margen del discurso cristalizado del poder. De esta forma, dichos sujetos religarían el espacio y el tiempo tanto en su crítica (análisis), en su comprensión (teoría), y en su transformación (práctica), no desde arriba (relación de poder), sino desde abajo y desde sus cuerpos, que es desde donde se construye todo.3. Retiro de la hermenéutica urbana el paradigma tempo-cultural vigente, esto es, ensayo la sustitución del modelo pasado-presente-futuro por el de la experiencia-presencia-deseo, más operativo y experimental para el desarrollo de la contemporaneidad y la expresión auténtica de los sujetos o agentes del cambio, y por tanto, necesario para entretejer la comunicación y la poesía de una nueva ciudad. En todas estas entradas el cuerpo está en el centro de las reflexiones, en él se concentran todos los tiempos y todas las desgracias, pero también todas las posibilidades liberatorias.4. Presento algunos textos míos estructurados sobre la base de las reflexiones señaladas, a fin de probar la operatividad y productividad de los modelos teóricos aquí aludidos. Se trata de una antología de textos cortos que corresponden a un caso concreto: la defensa de la memoria, en la crítica al manejo globalizador de una ciudad histórica patrimonial. Con esta opción verifico el modelo teórico en consecuencia con el tono y el conjunto de la tesis, puesto que, al criticar en la misma las acciones formales de la ciudad del presente como destructoras de todos los testigos de otros tiempos, las relecturas de los patrimonios culturales tangible e intangibles, adquieren súbita importancia."

    The proposed thesis has four dimensions:The globalized city differenciates itself from the modern city in a number of ways.These changes are characterised by changes in the patterns of employment, organization and accumulation. This work analyzes the conceptual and structural dimensions of the modern city. The critical theories that have previously been applied to the study the modern city have become obselete, and are no longer applicable to the configuration of today's cities. Such theories are misfitted to the contemporary city. While there is no shortage of theories which could be applied, the proliferation of capitalist relations, the growth of the urban population and the characteristic neoliberal values demand theories that can encompass the fluid pace of fast-changing societies. New productive relationships have also brought about new productive subjects. These subjects, who have assimilated past experiences, become the new actors in the transition of globalized cities into solidary, equal and liberal spaces I argue here that the ways of conceptualizing the modern city are no longer adequate for the study of the globalized cities. The globalized city believes that history has ended.Conceptualising the history of the city is the task of social sectors opposed to the globalization process. This process should consist of an intellectual task that is grounded in the collective narrative of the new historic subjects, who exist on the fringes of the discourse of power. From this perspective, the subjects in question, would realign the relationship between space and time through their criticism (analysis), comprehension (theory) and transformation (praxis/practice). This process, however, will be constructed, not from above (relationship with power), but from below, from their bodies.I abandon the contemporary urban hermeneitics of culture-time, chosing to replace the past-present-future model for experience-presence-desire, which is more applicable to the development of the contemporary and the authentic expression of subjects as agentes of change and thus necessary to the interlinking of the communication and poetry of the new city. En all these scenarios, the body is at the centre of the reflexions. In the body, all the times and humilations are condensed; but so too are all the emancipatory possibilities.The texts presented here are grounded in the reflections above reflections, with the objective of proving the applicability and productivity of the theoretical models discussed. This work is an anthology of short texts, all of which are based in a concrete case study. The unifying theme is the defense of the memory: a critique of the pro-globalizing administration of the historic city of Cuenca (Ecuador).Through the application of the model to the chosen texts, I hope to consolidate the four theses stated here. Through a critique of the formal management of the contemporary city as destroyers of witnesses from other eras, the revision of tangible and intangible cultural patrimony acquire great importance.
