Description

Alberto Lievore, America Sanchez, Carlos Rolando, Jorge Pensi, Mario Eskenazi and Ricardo Rousselot are just a few of the Argentine designers who have chosen to settle in Barcelona since the 1960s in what has become something of a phenomenon. Chaves sets out to discover their reasons for establishing roots in the city and their professional triumphs, with four of them having won Spains National Award. The approach is symmetrical: the first part of the book analyses what these architects brought with them from Argentina, whilst the second explores how they ended up in Barcelona and what they found there that motivated them to stay.

This dialogue between cultures is handsomely presented and colourfully illustrated throughout with snippets of the designers' varied and inventive work. Bilingual in Spanish and English and long in the preparation, this bookis exclusive to RIBA Bookshops in the UK.
