Abstract

La comunidad residencial de Castlecrag, construida a las afueras de Sydney por Marion Mahony Griffin y Walter Burley Griffin, supone una reivindicación del papel central del ser humano en la arquitectura por encima de cuestiones meramente funcionalistas. El uso de la técnica y la razón durante los primeros años del siglo xx, supuso un alejamiento del mundo experiencial, propio del hombre en su desarrollo como individuo que forma parte de un todo común como es la naturaleza. Su concepción holística del proyecto, implica una relación directa entre las vivencias de sus usuarios y el entorno en el que se materializan. Cercanos al pensamiento antroposófico de Rudolf Steiner, el desarrollo de su obra en Sydney supone una aplicación de algunos de los principios enunciados por éste en su colonia en Dornach. Así, los materiales, las texturas y los colores utilizados en los acabados de la casa Fishwick y la casa Duncan, tratan de establecer unas relaciones entre sus usuarios y la naturaleza que los rodea, de forma que la intuición unida a la razón, produzcan una arquitectura que permita el crecimiento personal del ser humano. ----------ABSTRACT---------- The residential community of Castlecrag, built on the outskirts of Sydney by Marion Mahony Griffin and Walter Burley Griffin, supposes a vindication of the central role of the human being in architecture over purely functionalist issues. The use of technique and reason during the early years of the 20th century, meant a departure from the experiential world, as a man’s own development as an individual that is part of a common whole as is nature. Its holistic conception of the project, implies a direct relationship between the experiences of its users and the environment in which they are built. Close to the anthroposophical ideas of Rudolf Steiner, the development of his work in Sydney is an application of some of the principles enunciated by him in his colony in Dornach. Thus, the materials, textures and colors used in the finishes of Fishwick house and Duncan house, try to establish relationships between their users and the nature that surrounds them, so that the intuition together with reason, produce an architecture that allows the personal growth of the human being.
