PEREZ OYARZUN, Fernando. El cuerpo y las trazas del tejo: Juan Borchers y el juego de la arquitectura. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2003, n.55, pp.48-49. ISSN 0717-6996.

For Rem Koolhaas, the city is a space for taking the greatest possible freedoms, and the street is probably where these are recorded most eloquently. Walls scribbled over like an exercise book carry drawings and messages. Games like hopscotch could be one of the freedoms Koolhaas speaks of: chalked on the pavement they mark an area for unplanned children’s play. A quirky sketch that changes each time it is re-drawn, its very fragility guarantees its survival. This is a review of Borchers field records on quoits, bodies and games.

Keywords : Architecture - Theory; Borchers; games.
