Ten Anniversaries and a Tribute

Uitgever:Arquitectura Viva

  • Engels, Spaans
  • 96 pagina's

The year 2013 was a year of centennials. With this issue Arquitectura Viva commemorates the birth of ten masters of 20th century architecture.

The list includes five Spaniards, a Japanese, a Greek, a French-Azerbaijan and two Argentinians. The Spaniards (José Antonio Coderch, Alejandro de la Sota, Miguel Fisac, Antoni Bonet i Castellana and Rafael Aburto) were part of an exceptional generation that, marked by the tragedy of the Civil War, played a key role in making the principles of the Modern Movement take root in Spain.
The other five also belong to the second modern generation which helped to introduce and disseminate new architectural ideas beyond Europe – Tange in Japan, Doxiadis in Greece and Africa, Williams and Álvarez in Argentina –, and then to reassess them from social and urban principles (Candilis in France).
