Retrospective of Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos


The most representative works of Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz—such as Basel Central Station in Switzerland, Madrid’s Atlético Club Madrid “La Peineta”, the new Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Santa Justa train station in Seville and the Spanish Pavilion for the Hannover Expo 2000—could be viewed in this exhibition curated by Jesús Ulargui, Titular Professor of the ETSAM’s Projects Department.

Since their foundation in 1974, Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos have undertaken projects in a vast range of architectural fields, from family houses or schools to major infrastructures such as stadiums, train stations or national museums.

Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos have won the Spanish National Architecture Prize 1992 for Santa Justa Station in Seville, and their works have been shortlisted on three occasions for the Mies van der Rohe Award. Throughout their professional career they have won other renowned national and international recognitions such as the Order of the Netherlands Lion, the 2014 Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects, the Abe Bonnema Award and the European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention (AADIPA) for The New Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

On the ICO Museum: It was inaugurated on 28 March 1996 and was initially intended for displaying the collections of Spanish 20th-century art of the Instituto de Crédito Oficial managed by the Fundación ICO. In the year 2012, the ICO Foundation designed a new display strategy for the ICO Museum which centred on the domain of architecture and urban development, around three thematic areas: the role of architecture in dealing with the major problems and challenges of today’s society; architecture and urban development from the optic of photography; and the major figures, schools or currents of contemporary architecture. With each exhibition, the ICO Foundation organises a series of complementary educational activities with the aim of bringing art and architecture as close to visitors as possible.
