Ciudad del Flamenco, Jerez



Ciudad del Flamenco, Jerez
This publication gathers the projects presented in the International Architecture Competition for the Construction of the City of Flamenco, the most ambitious proposal of the Gerencia de Urbanismo of the Ayuntamiento de Jerez to regenerate the historic center of the city and to promote the art of Flamenco: maximum expression of our culture. The past month of January it was my honor to preside the jury that reviewed the six ideas that were presented, which gave me the chance to enjoy the masterly presentations of Cruz &Ortiz, Herzog &de Meuron, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Sejima &Nishizawa, Álvaro Siza and Juan Miguel Hernández León, and Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra. And it was just as fascinating and enriching to share intense hours of deliberation with Luis Fernández-Galiano, David Chipperfield, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani and Dominique Perrault. I would like to thank them all, participating architects and jury members, for accepting our invitation to Jerez and for falling in love with an idea – the City of Flamenco – which they made their own from the very beginning.
