Bilbao´s architectures. Juan Daniel Fullaondo (1964-1978)

The exhibition focuses on making the architect's intense bond with his city visible, through a selection of works and the issues of the architecture magazine Nueva Forma, of which he was director, and in which Bilbao and the production of Basque artists, such as Jorge Oteiza and Eduardo Chillida, had a well-known presence.

The main line of the exhibition focuses on bringing to light the architectural production developed by Juan Daniel Fullaondo together with his fellow collaborators (Fernando Olabarria, Álvaro Líbano and José Luis and Félix Iñiguez de Onzoño) in the period between 1964 and 1978, located mostly in Bilbao and its geographical environment. Reviewing this phase of his career fifty years later, is a more than pertinent opportunity to rediscover and contextualize this valuable catalog of works, which to date has remained practically indifferent to critical attention.

The second complementary line deals with the special attention he paid to the cultural, architectural and artistic production of the Basque Country through the magazine Nueva Forma, and his special interest in the history of architecture and urbanism of his city, of which he wrote numerous specific studies. Through this editorial activity, Fullaondo defines in parallel, in the same period of time, the cultural landscape in which his work is immersed.

Organised by the School of Architecture of the UPV/EHU and developed with the collaboration of its students, it is the first exhibition to be held on this outstanding architect of the second half of the twentieth century. The exhibition aims to highlight Fullaondo as one of the key figures in modern Spanish architecture.
