Rafael Moneo. Theory through practice.

Kursaal Rafael Moneo

The Fundación Barrié of La Coruña – the exhibition’s organisers – along with various international venues, bring the first major retrospective on Rafael Moneo to the Thyssen. The exhibition brings together a selection of drawings, architectural models and photographs of 46 celebrated buildings by this Spanish architect, including the Logroño City Hall, the Museo Nacional de Arte Romano in Mérida, the extension to Atocha station in Madrid, the Kursaal in San Sebastián, the Museum of Modern Art and Architecture in Stockholm, the cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, the labs at Columbia University (New York), and the extension to the Prado. Also included are various projects that were never carried out but which also illustrate a fundamental part of Moneo’s thinking. In addition, to coincide with the Museum’s 25th anniversary, the exhibition will include a 'Thyssen Room' on the remodelling of the Palacio de Villahermosa as the venue to house the ThyssenBornemisza collection in Madrid.
