Madrid Opera House 1964 Competition Concepts

Francisco Longoria

In 1964 there was an international architectural contest held for an opera house in Madrid.

Below are some fascinating images of parts of the entries for the competition by 3 Spanish architects, as featured in the magazine “AuJourd’Hui, Art Et Architecture ” no. 52, February 1966.

This edition focussed on Spanish Architecture and Art and has a plethora of superb architectural  drawings, concept sketches, photographs and articles. It is written in French, but has a brief English summary.

Fernando Higueras (1930-2008)

As far as I have discovered this journal of art and architecture began publication in 1955 and ceased at the end of 1967 – although there are other French publications with very similar names.
