Seville is always full of cultural events and a lot of times they are architectural events. On this occasion we present you the exhibition about the architect José Miguel de Prada Poole. The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (CAAC) hosts in the city, from Mars 29 to the 1rst of September 2019 an exhibition about the architect with the following title “Prada Poole: The Perishable Architecture of Soap Bubbles”, produced together with Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MUSAC) of Castilla y León.

The monographic exhibition emphasizes the creative capacity of this architect from Valladolid but very close to Seville, well ahead of his time, through more than 1,400 pieces (plans, photographs, videos, inflatable structures and models).

In Seville, precisely, De Prada Poole designed the Hielotrón, an ice rink built in the seventies and El Palenque, a structure conceived as an auditorium and built on the Isla de la Cartuja for the 1992 Exhibition.
