Miralles Tagliabue's works shape several parts of the globe with a Spanish touch
Delayed by the Spanish Civil War and the ensuing dictatorship under Franco, the emergence of modernity in Spain may have been late in coming, but today’s young architects are making up for lost time in a spectacular way.
Original personalities like César Manrique Cabrera marked a move toward the modern in the 1960s, while Richard Bofill’s innovative work in the ’70s helped bring Spanish architecture to the world stage. In the 1990s, architects such as Rafael Moneo and Santiago Calatrava began to create the look of contemporary architecture in Spain as we know it.
The book Architecture in Spain guides us through some of the most important architects. Today, we are glad to show the work of Miralles Tagliabue, whose projects, designed from his office in Barcelona, are shaping several parts of the globe with a Spanish touch.
Let us taste some of his talent.
