TC 134/ 135- Francisco Mangado architecture

Tax included

This is the second monograph published in TC Cuadernos on the work of the architect Francisco Mangado. This monograph and the one that precedes it (TC Cuadernos 72/73), represent two periods of a single and continuous craft. And as Patxi himself says "to make architecture is a long-term thing, a long time, those times that we have to claim if we want to have enough room to think and meditate, to develop a trial-error process as a mechanism to obtain results and learning".

All the work presented in this second monograph participates in the architectural ideology of Patxi Mangado, an ideology that aspires to claim more than ever the value of architecture in society. The volume includes a compendium of works and projects corresponding to a period of more than a decade. 18 projects are collected in 490 pages, each one of which has been extensively developed to be able to understand it at the level of photographs, plans and construction details.

The light and the geometry as support of the construction are fundamental part of the architectural content of this second volume that perfectly complements the first one. These works and projects cover a wide variety of typologies, scales and places: housing, cultural buildings, offices and sports; from the Congress Palaces of Avila or Palma to the Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias, passing by the equestrian installation at Ultzama; all a compendium of the best production of Francisco Mangado, an essential volume to know and to deepen even more in the work of this prestigious architect. As Mangado says, "only time and use will be ending, judging little by little, and assessing whether the objective of serving the city and the people with whom they were born has been met".
