Arquitectura Viva 207:cities First
Eduardo Prieto makes a chronicle of the Fundación de Arquitectura y Sociedad's fifth congress, held in June in Pamplona, and through four interviews tackles the city theme from two different perspectives: that of literary writers and that of politicians. In the first interview, Eduardo Mendoza describes the rogue side of the anarchic, pre-Olympic Barcelona. Mendoza's novelistic outlook is complemented by that of the Cuban author Leonardo Padura, who explains the importance of Havana. Manuela Carmena, Mayor of Madrid, upholds an urban management model based on principles like participation, sustainability, and creativity and Joan Clos looks back on his time as Mayor of Barcelona in the post-Olympic period.
