‘Fernando Higueras. Desde el origen’ at Museo ICO

On view through 19 May at the ICO Museum is an exhibition on Fernando Higueras (Madrid, 1930-2008), curated by Lola Botia and organized by the ICO Foundation in collaboration with the Spanish Public Works Ministry’s Directorate-General for Architecture, Housing, and Land. A chronological presentation of the Madrid architect’s oeuvre includes original models, photographs, plans, a recreation of his home studio, called ‘Hellscraper,’ and audios in which Higueras talks about his buildings and his conception of architecture. As for his interest in popular architectures, he says: “I have learned a lot from anonymous popular architecture because it is an endless source of lessons. I have always appreciated its naturalness, adequacy, order and functionality, logic, economy, as well as discipline and diversity combined and harmonized at a level that I can hardly find in contemporary architecture.”
