Spanish architect Francisco Mangado tours Australia in September and October 2012 for the International Speaker Series by the Australian Institute of Architects.
Mangado studied architecture at the University of Navarre School of Architecture, and has since made this institution the centre of his teaching career. He has also been a guest professor at Harvard, Yale and l’École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. In 2008, he set up the Fundación Arquitectura y Sociedad to help increase architecture’s interaction with other fields of knowledge and action. He combines this academic and foundation work with his architectural practice, which he runs from his studio in Pamplona.
Mangado’s notable works include the Cultural Centre and Church in Thiene (Italy), the Auditorium and Congress Centre of Pamplona, the Place Pey Berland in Bordeaux, the Municipal Exhibition and Congress Centre of Ávila (pictured), the Archaeology Museum of Vitoria, the Football Stadium of Palencia, and the Spanish Pavilion at the 2008 International Exposition in Zaragoza.
