IVAM Commemorates the Centenary of the Birth of Architect Felix Candela with an Exhibition of His Work


VALENCIA.- The exhibition that the IVAM and the Sociedad Estatal Conmemoraciones Culturales (SECC) dedicate to Félix Candela’s work exemplifies the assimilation process involved in the dramatic experience of exile and his integration in the complex processes of modernisation and urban development in Latin American countries. His professional experience and his work in both public and private spaces show concordance and a series of achievements that mark one of the privileged moments of the imaginary associated with exile in Latin American architecture. The exhibition organised by the IVAM and the SECC to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Félix Candela’s birth presents a series of photographs taken by famous photographers; plans and drawings; models of his most emblematic buildings; personal objects and a multimedia section that includes two documentaries Una
