Teresa Couceiro Núñez · Directora de la Fundación Alejandro de la Sota

Alejandro de la Sota creía que la arquitectura se hace de dentro hacia fuera. “Solo le hacía falta un sitio donde pensar”, así los cuentan sus hijos o colaboradores en las charlas que han impartido sobre el maestro pontevedrés. Para Alejandro de la Sota este espacio no era otro que su estudio ubicado en la C/Bretón de los Herreros, 66, […]

Unfocused Appointments | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In general, and except for honorable exceptions, the architects write regular. In fact, the fact of approaching with such passion a task for which we have not been specifically trained has merit.

What is architecture for Alejandro de la Sota

“I always liked to talk about architecture as fun, if it is not done happily it is not architecture, this joy is precisely the architecture, the satisfaction that you feel, the emotion of architecture makes you smile, it makes you laugh, life is not.” Alejandro de la Sota (Pontevedra, 1913; Madrid, 1996) is one of the masters of twentieth-century Spanish architecture.

Are we softening ourselves? | Elías Cueto

To his air | Sergio de Miguel

In 1962, the unforgettable Sota left us a jewel in Madrid. A gymnasium, for a school. A building transition. A section. An attitude. An exercise of architectural goodness. It was necessary to save a desnivel incorporating an extension to the school Maravillas. Resolve the stair. Giving a soil to the playground of games by up and a façade to the […]

La batalla cotidiana | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In occasions a fragment hides the traces of the totality. The vibration of the paved one, the diversity of his scales, the sheen of the low light on the broken profile of each and every of the pieces, the soil represents somehow the territory of the whole city, the soil as set of trodden, the country as an amalgam of […]

Objet trouvé [05] : Sota and the ‘luminous’ building | Rodrigo Almonacid

The year 1970 is a point of inflexion in Alejandro de la Sota’s architectural path: on one hand, it loses the contest of Chair of Elements of Composition of the ETSAM, after going as teacher fourteen years at the time, and to have turned into doctor five years before; on the other hand, he does not turn out to be […]

Not so known it is the interest that the teacher cultivated all his […]
