RIBA panel discussion on the work of Spanish architect Alejandro de la Sota. Historian William Curtis will present an overview of de la Sota’s career. Curtis will be joined by the architect William Mann, Witherford Watson Mann, as well as de la Sota's son, Alejandro de la Sota Jr. and Prof. Judi Loach, of Docomomo UK, who will chair the discussion.

De la Sota is recognised as one of the foremost Spanish architects of his time, Alejandro de la Sota (1913-1996) made an important and enduring contribution to architecture in Spain, including the Civil Government Building in Tarragona (1956-61) and the Maravillas Gymnasium in Madrid (1960-62).

The relative isolation of the Spanish regime under Franco proved a barrier to the international dissemination of de la Sota’s work until later in his career and he remains less well known in Britain than elsewhere.

This event is organised by Docomomo UK with support from the Instituto Cervantes and the Fundación Alejandro de la Sota.
