MADRID – “La Casa de la Arquitectura,” a museum entirely dedicated to Spanish architecture, has recently opened in the heart of Madrid at Nuevos Ministerios. This new cultural addition aims to join the network of National Museums.
Located at Paseo de la Castellana 67, the museum offers a space to explore the past, present, and future of Spanish architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture. It currently hosts three exhibitions and an audiovisual installation, with plans to double its space in the future.
Exhibitions Showcasing Spanish Architecture
The exhibit ‘La construcción de un país’ guides visitors through buildings across Spain designed by Spanish architects, presented via over 65 models. ‘Ecosistema Zip, Nuevos procesos, Nuevas arquitecturas’ displays the work of 300 architectural studios, highlighting current trends and collaborative practices in Spain’s architectural landscape. Another exhibit, ‘Nameless Model,’ features models from recently established Barcelona-based architecture studios.
Digital Platform for Architecture Aficionados
In addition to the physical space, the museum boasts an operational website, serving as both an online museum and a comprehensive platform for Spanish architectural news. It enables global architecture enthusiasts to engage with the richness of Spanish architecture, both in person and digitally. This website also acts as a comprehensive encyclopedia of Spanish architecture. More information is available at lacasadelaarquitectura.es.
