Portraying the practice of Spanish Architecture Abroad is a complex task. EXPORT is not a comprehensive catalog of architectural works, nor is it a list of designed buildings in faraway places, because this would not do justice to what it means to be an architect in a globalized society, a place of “arrivals and departures”.
EXPORT does not strive to provide an exhaustive look at all the parties involved, but a glimpse for visitors to construct relations, connect ideas, and gain insight into the field, in order to understand that architecture is more than erecting buildings, but the creation of products that construct our world.
EXPORT approaches the subject from an open, pluralistic and unprejudiced perspective. Organizing the contents in six possible ways to practice architecture today, and complemented by the intervention of external agents, the exhibition offers a richer and original view of Spanish Architecture abroad.
Architecture Center Houston and AIA Houston are sponsoring partners of this exhibit.
This exhibit is located in the Mashburn Gallery at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture & Design on the University of Houston campus.
This exhibit is accompanied by a series of lectures.
