Guided Tour of the Alejandro de la Sota Foundation
The Foundation’s offices are located in Alejandro de la Sota’s former studio, in the centre of Madrid. On the guided tour you will have the opportunity to see the architect’s workspace, and to photograph the furniture that he designed, as well as appreciate the details of the famous doorframe-pull – the woodwork that Alejandro de la Sota himself patented and used in works such as the Maravillas Gymnasium, the Civil Government of Tarragona and the CLESA Dairy Facility.
You will also see original works on paper from the archive, including the architect’s watercolours and caricatures, in addition to plans, drawings and photographs of his projects. You will be guided through an exhibition of material from the archive.
