Produced entirely by the Barrié Foundation, RAFAEL MONEO Theory through Practice is the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of the Spanish contemporary architect, holder of the 1996 Pritzker Prize and the 2012 Príncipe de Asturias de las Artes Award, showcasing 46 projects organised into five different sections, 18 models, 142 photographs and 98 drawings.

To accompany the exhibition the Fundación Barrié is organizing a full program of educational activities, all of which will be free of charge. Besides the customary guided tours for adults, education workshops for children and families, the program also includes a master class offered by the architect prior to the exhibition opening to the students of the School of Architecture at the University of A Coruña.

Curated by Francisco González de Canales, cultural coordinator and professor at the London Architectural Association, the exhibition takes visitors through the architect’s professional archives and shows the importance of drawing as a fundamental tool and medium for defining the architect’s way of thinking.

Architecture is one of the core elements in the Fundación Barrié exhibition programme, which has in the past included names such as David Chipperfield (2010), Gonçalo Byrne (2010/2011) or exhibitions dedicated to Frank Lloyd Wright or Mies van der Rohe.
