    El Croquis 115-116 (Part II) focuses on the influential Spanish architectural duo Mansilla + Tuñón Arquitectos, covering their prolific period from 2001 to 2003. This era saw Emilio Tuñón and José María Mansilla refine their unique approach, characterized by a nuanced interplay between rigorous systems and poetic expression.

    System and Subjectivity:

    The book delves into Mansilla + Tuñón’s signature design strategy, where they employ modular grids and repetitive elements to create order and coherence. However, within this framework, they inject layers of subjectivity through unexpected material choices, subtle variations in form, and playful details. This results in an architecture that is both rational and emotive, rigorously composed yet open to interpretation.

    Key Projects:

    • Museo de las Colecciones Reales, Madrid, Spain (2004): This museum exemplifies Mansilla + Tuñón’s mastery of integrating contemporary architecture within historic contexts. The simple, monolithic form respectfully dialogues with the adjacent Royal Palace while offering a modern and inviting space for showcasing art collections.

    • Niemeyer Cultural Center, Avilés, Spain (2006): This cultural center showcases the duo’s ability to handle large-scale projects with sensitivity. The undulating concrete forms and dynamic spatial sequences create a striking landmark while honoring the surrounding urban landscape.

    • CaixaForum Madrid, Madrid, Spain (2009): This cultural center, completed just outside the covered period, exemplifies Mansilla + Tuñón’s continued exploration of the interplay between system and subjectivity. The gridded facade and repetitive arches create a rhythmic order, while the unexpected angles and material juxtapositions inject a sense of playful dynamism.

    Beyond Order and Emotion:

    El Croquis 115-116 (Part II) goes beyond showcasing Mansilla + Tuñón’s elegant and evocative architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of their work, exploring their engagement with contemporary construction techniques, sustainability, and the relationship between architecture and the public realm. Essays by renowned critics and theorists provide insightful analyses of the duo’s approach, making the book a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in cutting-edge architectural thought.

    A Legacy of Poetic Rigor:

    Mansilla + Tuñón Arquitectos’ work continues to inspire architects and artists worldwide. Their ability to seamlessly blend rational order with poetic expression has enriched the architectural landscape and challenged traditional notions of how buildings can be both functional and evocative. El Croquis 115-116 (Part II) serves as a timeless testament to their legacy and a valuable resource for understanding the ever-evolving conversation between system and subjectivity in architecture.
