Conference dedicated to the Madrid architect Rafael de la Hoz Arderius (1924-2000) as part of the Modern Masters cycle of the COAM Architecture Foundation.
With this cycle we want to highlight the importance that the contemporary architectural heritage has for the society of the 21st century, the need for its social recognition and its maintenance and conservation.
Throughout his professional career, he has won prizes as outstanding as the National Architecture Prize, in 1956, for the Aquinas High School; the VI Antonio Camuñas Architecture Prize, in 1995 and, in 2000, the Gold Medal of Architecture.
Towards the middle of the sixties, his Cordoba studio works throughout Andalusia with works such as the El Águila beer factory building (Córdoba), the Torremolinos Congress Palace, the Provincial Hospital of Córdoba, the headquarters of the Medical College of Seville or the school of the Teresianas of Córdoba. In the seventies, and already in Madrid, he planned the extension of the Ministry of the Navy and the old Coca Bank building, on the Plaza de Emilio Castelar, at number 50 Paseo de la Castellana.
Round table with the intervention of Rafael de La-Hoz Castanys, Arturo Franco and Francisco Daroca.
