This publication and the exhibition it accompanies feature 36 important architectural projects throughout Spain, a country that in recent years has become known as an international center for design innovation and excellence. The projects, all of which will be in construction in 2006, are seen in relation to 14 other major architectural accomplishments that have been completed in Spain within the last five years. The projects reflect diversity both in geography and in the architects who conceive them--"from relative newcomers to established practitioners--"and also represent a wide range of scales, including a private house and a new international airport. In addition to presenting the accomplishments of Spanish architects, approximately a third of the projects included have been authored by architects from other countries in Europe, Asia, and the United States. The publication includes an introductory essay by Terence Riley, The Phillip Johnson Chief Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art.

Architect Richard S. Requa traveled Spain and the Mediterannean, documenting authentic architecture. Together with The Monolith Portland Cement Co., Requa published his portfolio of images in 1926, helping to fuel architecture's Spanish Revival movement (1915-1940) throughout the Pacific Coast and Florida. His images were "selected and arranged especially for use in developing a logical and appropriate style of architecture for California and the Pacific Southwest," and they had a profound influence as they were widely distributed to design professionals as well as schools and libraries. Besides providing a wealth of inspiration regarding overall architecture, the nearly 200 images also provide intimate detailing of balconies, doors, hardware, and architectural motifs, and serve as a wonderful resource for historians and restoration experts. Because Spanish Revival is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, the timing of this inspirational re-issue will aid, once again, in focusing on the native roots of the widely loved school of architecture.
