Coderch 1940-1964: En Busca del Hogar

Antonio Pizza, Carles Folch, Josep M. Rovira


Out of stock

Twenty houses in Olot, Spain, along with other commissions from the Obra Sindical del Hogar and the houses in Sitges, are part of the beginnings of the José Antonio Coderch’s trajectory. But the key date was 1949: Gio Ponti, a reference figure for the Catalan, became interested in the Garriga y Nogués house.

Then Coderch’s career took off and became Europeanized: in 1950 he was appointed curator of the Spanish pavilion at the IX Milan Triennale in 1951, for whose design he received the gold medal; and he published in L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui and Domus. More narrative than inquisitive, and written out of unconditional admiration, Rovira and Pizza’s texts break down the architect’s life and professional adventure, incorporating into their account all the relevant bibliography on this period, in such a way that they build a book of books, including the cataloguing of what was produced at that time, by Carles Folch.
