DEULOFEU, Glenn. Universality and Its Circumstances: Three Dialectics from the Maule Region. Universum [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.2, pp.47-61. ISSN 0718-2376.

The text explores the dialectics between the universal and circumstantial sources that nourish a great part of the modern architectural production. Instead of generating specific definitions for a way of building within a certain territory, the three cases here presented exemplify a broader way to conceive the architectural project, whose flexibility, openness and adaptability stretched into the outlying areas of the Maule Region, in Chile. The formal identity of these works and their relationships of belonging to the environment are settled case by case, incorporating in their synthesis the necessary universal models of order -connatural to the building systems and their materials- and the circumstantial aspects of the program, the places, the time and the architects involved. Along with highlighting the photographic and planimetric analysis of each of the works, the intention is also to provide an approximation to the historical and theoretical context to which these productions are linked, directly or indirectly.

Keywords : Modern architecture; modern form; building; Maule Region.
