The modern architecture of Cadaqués



Inspired by the early style of Corbusier and the ideas on Mediterranean architecture adopted by Bernard Rudofsky and Josep Lluís Sert, a young generation of architects found the ideal conditions to explore the future of the Mediterranean house in Cadaqués, a small fishing village on Spain's La Costa Brava that was also home to some of the greatest artistic figures of the last century, including Dalí, Picasso, Miró and Duchamp.

In this new book, period photos show the distinctive style and environment of Cadaqués and 22 houses designed by Federico Correa, Alfonso Milà, José Antonio Coderch, Francesc Joan Barba Corsini, Peter Harnden, Lanfranco Bombelli, Oscar Tusquets and Lluís Clotet. Written and edited by Nacho Alegre, it features an introduction by Oscar Tusquets and an afterword by Marc Arnal also recounts the friendships and influences that existed between this group of architects, and how their architecture came to be.
