Abstract

For almost twenty years the phrase "Spanish architecture" was spoken in hushed and reverent tones. It evoked not just GaudĂ­ and his perpetually unfinished spires, but a new breed of visionaries who were reinventing the profession and doing wonders for the Spanish economy while they did it. Now, the days of international recognition seem far away. With home evictions soaring, joblessness endemic, and both the Socialists and the center-right People's Party (PP) willing to implement austerity measures in the face of suffering, Spain has gone from architectural bon enfant to real estate bubble bĂȘte noire.
