[EN] The city of Guadalajara had ten parish churches in the 19th century, besidesfourteen convents and a large number of other religious buildingsthat made the religious function one of the most important activity in the city. Most of the religious architectural heritage was lost due to confiscation, suppression of parishes, war and neglect.One of these missing buildings wasthe old parish church of Santiago.We can approach the architecture and construction of this building with graphic documents preserved, but mainly due to aJenaro Pérez Villaamil ́s freehand sketch

[EN] Analysis of visual behaviour before a given stimulus is a tool for studying an observer’s most immediate, instinctive response. Recent access to technology able to locate and record the path the eye takes when observing a stimulus has led to growing interest in how we observe our environment. Studies which have simultaneously measured an observer’s subjective response and visual journey make it possible to establish a relationship between the way the image is observed and the observer’s visual attention to the image. This present paper describes an experimental study which applies this new technique for visual analysis to the...

[EN] It is impossible to conceive of archaeology –the discipline that tells us of the societies of our history by studying their material remains– without the drawing. There is no area of archaeology –from fieldwork to technical and administrative reports and publications– in which the drawing does not play an active role. Based on two drawings of the Tower of the Scipios in Tarragona that are separated in time and concept, one by Mouliner and the other from the DAI, we reflect on the suitability of the archaeological drawing, its purpose and its functionality

[EN] The contest for the first tourist city of Spain was held in 1933. The competition requirements asked for extensive documentation: plans, drawings and perspective views. The analysis of the winning proposal –particularly careful with the pre-existing elements– reveals an accurate continuity linking the geography and the city planning that emerges from both the urban reflection and the graphic tools. First, the territory is drawn by using diagrams. Second, the data and the vocations of land are transformed into an urban fabric zoned for different uses of the space that would be developed over the time. And third, the pictures...

[EN] Despite having footprints in its urban layout of the major historical events that occurred in Spain in the last 2 millennia, between them, being cradle of one of the first universities of Spain, there are few graphic documents that help to know how it has been the journey at the time of the urban fabric of the city until the 19th century when appear the first maps of the same. This obliges us to fill these holes using drawing as a tool that interpret the rest of documentation to obtain the temporal evolution of its image during these last...

[EN] The emergence of the digital tablets around 2010 as an alternative to the laptop originated a technological revolution in the relation with users and the information technology. The development of specific drawing applications for these new devices has meant an unexpected new implement for today draughtsmen.

[EN] Jerónimo Quijano was one of the illustrious architects emphasized during the Full Renaissance in Spain. His work in the Santiago parish church in Orihuela (Alicante) includes the Renaissance main chapel of central plant and attached to the preexisting gothic nave. Stresses its upper vault of four double intercrossed and distorted arches. Being double, the severies of the central surface are reduced and it gains in stability. At the same time, it has a complicated geometry by joining square and sphere: a pseudo-truncated vault (it is spherical only to inner arches) and the lateral severies of the vault are adapting...
