The Spanish architecture exhibition reaches Sharjah
“On a Journey: Spanish architecture in the Arab world” can be seen at the American University of Sharjah until mid-November.
October 29, 2015
This exhibition, put on by Casa Árabe and the Superior Council of the Architects’ Associations of Spain (CSCAE) is being presented in Sharjah thanks to the support of the College of Architecture, Art and Design of the American University of Sharjah and the Embassy of Spain in the United Arab Emirates.
It will be open from Sunday to Thursday, from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. until November 12, 2015.
The exhibition makes it possible to become familiar with projects by Spanish architecture firms and studios carried out in Arab countries. It is the result of a fine example of successful work towards internationalization that makes a major contribution to positioning and strengthening the Spain Brand abroad.
Amongst those shown in this exhibition, it will be possible to view projects by well-known architecture studios such as Nieto Sobejano, Fenwick Irribarren, Lamela, César Ruiz Larrea, Rafael de la Hoz and Campo Baeza, alongside another series of younger studios which have committed to internationalization in the Arab world, as is the case of AGI Arquitectos, Hadit and AV62. Also represented are some of Spain’s most significant engineering firms: Alatec, Sener, Idom and TYPSA, all present in the Arab world for several decades now.
