Book Launch Reception with Drinks and Canapés: Fundación Eduardo Torroja
We invite you to the private Book Launch of “Eduardo Torroja 1949, strategy to industrialise housing in post-World War II”.
The book brings to light a fascinating and little known event that took place after the Great War. Spanish engineer, Eduardo Torroja, organised an international housing design competition that sought to solve the impending shortage after the war. 17 countries took part in this competition and 89 design proposals were submitted. With contributions from Lord Norman Foster, Luis Fernandez Galiano and Bill Addis amongst others, the book offers detailed graphic information of the proposals that were submitted to the competition.
Pepa Cassinello, Director of the Fundación Eduardo Torroja, Department of Construction and Technology, Madrid Polytechnic University, Spain.
Bill Addis, Department of Architecture, Cambridge University. Co-Editor “Construction History”.
