MadeinSpain_USA: Miami Lecture Series
Juan Domingo Santos will close the fifth edition of MadeinSpain at the University of Miami, where he will present the most significant features of Spanish architecture.
The fifth edition of the MadeinSpain lecture series, organized by the Spanish Foundation for Contemporary Architecture, will present a lecture and discussion with Spanish architect Juan Domingo Santos at the University of Miami School of Architecture.
His work has been displayed at exhibitions in Spain and abroad, including the 7th Biennale di Architettura di Venice; On Site, New Architecture in Spain organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Spanish Architecture Biennale (93-94), among others.
He was awarded the Enor Great Award of Architecture 2011. His work has followed a research line concerning landscapes undergoing transformation and architectural operations on heritage buildings. He recently finished An Encounter, a short film produced in conjunction with cinema director Juan Bollaín that describes his experience as a squatter in the sugar factory, now his studio, and his experiments there since 1986, which have influenced his way of understanding the relationship between architecture and heritage, and at the same time, emerged as a rescue mission for this abandoned industrial precinct.
The Foundation for Contemporary Architecture has as part of its objectives to support the work of outstanding Spanish professionals, make their work know outside our country, and to contribute to a broader discussion of architecture in public and private sectors.
