On a plot that is more deep than wide, the house is designed to differentiate work space from the domestic realm. The voids, concatenated on section, provide the different degrees of privacy requested, with extendable spaces for the interior rooms –
The town of Fuentes is nestled in the Sevillian countryside, in the Guadalquivir valley. Settlements from different periods have left a rich cultural and monumental heritage, further enhanced by its landscape and agricultural history. Within the Prog
In Arahal, a municipality in the province of Seville that takes its name from the Arabic term Ar-rahal, meaning a place along a path where one stops to rest, stands this 1920s house which José Luis Daroca Bruño and Jaime Daroca Guerrero have refurbis
Thought up as a system rather than as a building, the timber ‘villa’ is protected by an energy production roof fit out with solar paneles that autonomously generate a comfortable microclimate for visitors and staff of the new research center...
The huge canopy that rests on the rhythmic structure of timber supports, along with the greenery that fills all floors, brings air and shade into the complex spaces created by these green ‘lungs,’ reinterpreting the traditional Andalusian courtyard h
Taking as reference the Sevillian system of pergolas, a cloud of solar canopies held by a forest of slender columns will protect the research building, the garden, and the plaza, creating a variety of public spaces underneath it...

The plaza of Santiago is located in the historic center of Carmona, on a plot of 248 meters in height that lords over the River Corbones valley, filling up one of the edges of the old walled precinct. The 1,300 square meter site included a series of
Outside the city’s old quarter, integrated into the landscape of the Guadalquivir River, the San Telmo Palace is an outstanding civic example of Spanish Baroque. Built in 1682-1796 as a university college-seminary, it was transformed in the second ha
Surgido de una matriz bioclimática y dotado de una ‘piel’ y unos ‘órganos’ energéticos, este edificio se inspira por igual en las metáforas mecánicas y biológicas de la arquitectura.
With six sites in different countries of the European Union, the Joint Research Center is the organism that provides the European Commission with scientific support for the conception of its plans and policies. The Seville branch opened in 1994 as a

A reference in contemporary Sevillian architecture died in his native city at 68 years of age. Antonio González Cordón graduated in 1975, earned his PhD in 1982, and had an outstanding and prolific career that produced some iconic buildings of the Se
This promenade through Córdoba, Seville, and Granada is also a walk through the intellectual journey of its author. Rafael Moneo brings together three texts, written in successive decades, that examine three monumental works built in the period betwe
Despite all the media hype surrounding the opening of the CaixaForum of Seville, it’s hard not to succumb to nostalgia if we compare the building with what it could have been: the poetic intervention at the Royal Dockyards that the Caixa Foundation b
On view at the CAAC in Seville, Resistance and Tradiction is the first anthology on the artist Ai Weiwei ever to be offered in a Spanish Museum.
La artesanía sacra, uno de los sectores industriales de mayor arraigo en Sevilla, se traslada a un moderno parque empresarial. Surgido de una iniciativa del ayuntamiento para responder a las necesidades de un sector todavía brioso que demandaba un es
Tras un largo proceso, después de que las obras se hayan desarrollado a lo largo de seis años en los que el presupuesto original ha sufrido desviaciones constantes —pasando de los 51 millones de euros originalmente presupuestados a un coste final est
De Escuela de Mareantes en el siglo XVII a sede de la Presidencia de la Junta de Andalucía en el XXI; el palacio sevillano ha cambiado de programa, manteniendo su sustancia.

¿Lo desacogedor? Éste es el neologismo inventado para etiquetar la segunda edición de la Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla, cuyo director artístico, el nigeriano Okwui Enwezor, no desea que pensemos en una reactualización del famo
‘La alegría de mis sueños’, frase extraída de una canción de Camarón de la Isla, es la estimulante divisa escogida por Harald Szeemann para esta primera Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla. Reconozco haber pensado, yo también, hace unos meses, qu
Some irregular forms define the perimeter of the roof of what at first sight looks like a huge shed. Viewed from afar it is a rather anonymous construction, a bit coarse perhaps in outline and almost offhandedly rendered. Broken and exact perimeters
The sevillians Cruz & Ortiz quote Nabokov with obsessive frequency. I have only seen such fervor for the Russian writer in Ángel Díaz, an architect given to reciting whole paragraphs from his works in the dawns of Seville, and in my uncle Manuel Fern
Whoever has closely followed the work of Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz, admirable for its continuity, may be surprised at the appearance, as something new in their career, of projects like their entry to the competition for the extension of the Rein
Ten years from now we will be talking about the Generation of 92. This will have little to do with the celebrations of that summer, and much to do with the hangover that follows. Besides games, festivals and fairs, 1992 is a key year for Europe: the
From euforia to despondency: rarely has the collective state of mind experienced such an extraordinary mutation in a single year. What began as an annus mirabilis for a nation that confidently readied itself for the fifth centenary of the discovery o
After the passions of 1992,1993 was a year of hangovers, low profiles and everyday dramas. The emblematic year of the 5th Centenary could have been summed up by four forceful silhouettes in four big Spanish cities: the steel octopus designed by Frank
Más puerto y menos aéreo, el aeropuerto de hoy es una representación exacerbada e hiperbólica de la vitalidad, la agitación y el caos de la ciudad contemporánea.
En la Expo se confunden el silicio y la silicona. La isla de La Cartuja albergará durante seis meses un circo mágico que mezcla la tecnología de la imagen con la imagen de la tecnología, desdibujando los límites entre el conocimiento y la apariencia,
En la primavera de 1992 se abren al público la Exposición Universal de Sevilla y el Euro Disneyland de París. Ambas ferias esperan millones de visitantes, ambas han exigido una inversión extraordinaria en infraestructuras, y ambas han utilizado arqui
