The "Poblado dirigido" of Caño Roto
The activity carried out in the 1950s in the "Poblados dirigidos" by those who would be called to be the fathers of modern Spanish architecture in the second half of the 20th century is among the most delicate and full of consequences of all their careers.
With limited means, in a harsh political and economic climate, and having to count on the labor offered by the residents themselves, the "Poblados dirigidos", with their successes and their logical shortcomings, have become an example of architectural commitment that over time it has acquired the dimension of a milestone in the history of Spanish architecture. Caño Roto is one of the most significant examples of this cycle and it more than deserves this excellent study.
