50th Anniversary of the Gobierno Civil Building in Tarragona
This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Gobierno Civil building in Tarragona, as well as the centenary of architect Alejandro de la Sota's birth. Therefore, the exhibition "100 years with Alejandro de la Sota" will open on November 18th. Our wish is that it will be as successful as earlier exhibitions in the CGAC and COAM.
The exhibition will open from November 18th until January 16th, 2015, from 9 am to 7 pm from Monday to Sunday. Guided tours are conducted on Saturdays at 10.30 am and 12.30 pm (with appointment only).
Organized by COAC together with the Government Subdelegation in Tarragona, and sponsored by Repsol, the Spanish Ministry of Development, BASF, ANAV and Zona Franca Consortium. Produced by ICO Foundation together with Alejandro de la Sota Foundation.
The exhibition features a chronological tour that includes works like Pueblo de Esquivel, Civil Government of Tarragona, Maravillas Gymnasium, Casa Dominguez, León Post Office, Alcudia housing and Central Lechera Clesa, with original drawings, photographs, models and furniture.
There will also be a series of conferences and debates related to the work of Alejandro de la Sota, with the participation of architects Mariano Bayon, Josep Llinas, Moises Puente, Santiago Barge Ferreiros and Jordi Guerrero.
