On Site: New Architecture in Spain
Terence RileyISBN: 0870704990; 9780870704994;
This publication and the exhibition it accompanies feature 36 current architectural projects throughout Spain, a country that in recent years has become known as a center for design innovation and excellence well beyond Bilbao. The projects are seen in relation to 16 other major architectural accomplishments recently completed in Spain. They reflect diversity in the geography of their sites; in scale, from private houses to a new international airport; and in the architects who have conceived them, from relative newcomers to established practitioners, both Spanish and from other countries in Europe, Asia, and the United States. On Site: New Architecture in Spain includes an introductory essay by Terence Riley, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art. His recent publications include Yoshio Taniguchi: Nine Museums and Tall Buildings.
