A masterfully documented monographic volume on the evocative, varied work of one of the leading protagonists of contemporary architecture.
[Enric Miralles. Works and projects] “There exists no ‘natural form par excellence’ of making architecture”, writes Juan José Lahuerta in the introduction to this book. Nothing in the work of Enric Miralles is “natural”, nothing taken for granted. Among the Spanish architects who have achieved international acclaim over the last two decades, Miralles (1955-2000) occupies a very particular, controversial, heterodox position with respect to the Catalan context of his training, from which he nevertheless drew undeniable elements of influence. The original pat of Miralles is traced, in the book edited by Benedetta Tagliabue, in every sphere and detour, with complete documentation utilizing color photographs, graphics and sketches of the research of one of the leading protagonists of contemporary architecture.
