Josep Martorell and Oriol Bohigas started working together in 1951 in Barcelona after graduating from the local school of architecture. David Mackay, who trained at North London Polytechnic, joined them in 1962. Martorell was President of the Architecture Congress of Catalunya 1980 - 1981, and is a member of the Architectural Heritage Commission in Barcelona. Bohigas is personal advisor on urban affairs to the Mayor of Barcelona, has been teaching architecture all over the world since 1964, and has written prolifically on the subject. Mackay has taught architecture in Barcelona and the USA and is author of numerous articles and books.
In their talk they describe how, in their work, they have incorporated typologies for dwellings as established by the Modern movement, yet have maintained the traditional concepts of urban form, succeeding in combining rationalism and regionalism, using both craftsmen and industry where appropriate.
David Mackay speaks in English in combination with the images, and then at the end Martorell and Bohigas take up the thread in Spanish.
