Josep Lluís Mateo: Obra Reciente

Front Cover
Editorial Gustavo Gili, 2003 - Architecture - 143 pages
Internationally known for his labors as head of the famous magazine Quaderns between 1981 and 1990, Josep Lluís Mateo has never abandoned his professional practice as an architect, building not only in Spain, but in various European countries, an activity he currently combines with teaching at the ETH in Zurich. This monographic issue presents his most recent projects and buildings. Among his built works are the housing block on Borneo Island (Amsterdam), two groups of apartments in Barcelona, a covered swimming pool in Girona, and the Barcelona International Convention Center, due to be inaugurated in 2004. This number features essays by such prestigious international critics as Wilfried Wang, Ákos Moravánszky, Manuel Delgado, Aaron Betsky and Ignasi de Solŕ-Morales, and is complemented by a conversation with Ińaki Ábalos, a text by Mateo himself, "In Globalization", and photos taken especially for this issue by Xavier Ribas.
