Rodrigo García González participated in the symposium “Arquitectura Iberica | Reencuentros y Talleres” directed by Eduardo Souto de Moura (2011 Pritzker Prize) and Francisco Mangado curated by Ariadna Cantis and Jacobo Garcia German.
The symposium in Valladolid, Spain, returned to the idea of “Encuentros” – meetings between Spanish and Portuguese architects – initiated by Alvaro Siza and Rafael Moneo in 1997. The “Reencuentros” again brought together equal numbers of Spanish and Portuguese architects, critics, teachers and students for 2 days of creative exchange. Among the guests, Martha Thorne, Executive Director of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, and Peter Gadanho, Chief Curator of Contemporary Architecture at MOMA, engaged in intense debate with local curators and directors about architecture in the Iberian context.
