From the Galician architects born during the Civil War, Manuel Gallego and César Portela, to the Catalans who came two decades later, Joan Roig, Enric Batlle, and Carme Pinós, this handful of trajectories illustrates the geographical variety that marked the renewal of Spanish architecture, and also the progressive internationalization of its authors. Some have carried out a significant part of their career abroad, and this is the case of Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Ricardo Bofill, Cruz & Ortiz, and Fernando Menis. Nevertheless, most of them built the best of their works in the country, and all were fortunate to reach professional and artistic maturity during an exceptional period of social and economic transformation in Spain, which provided unprecedented opportunities for architecture and drew acclaim beyond our borders like never before.
