Small Architecture in Spain
 
Compared to other European countries, the market for architecture in Spain is very active. Large-scale projects designedby world-renowned architects in major cities such as Madrid andBarcelona characterize the robust architectural scene in Spain.On the other hand, there are many local projects done bySpanish architects.

This issue willfocus on such architectural approaches through examiningrelatively small-scale projects.
