Scope and Content

This project series documents the Guardiola house in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 56/80. The office assigned the date 1988 to this project.

The project site was located on the bay of Cadiz in Santa Maria del Mar in Spain. The holiday house was comissioned by a bull breeder. The client asked four different architects to propose a design. The architects were Álvaro Siza, Peter Eisenman, John Hejduk, and Frank Gehry. Siza's design included a structure of reinforced concrete and a series of courtyards. None of the architects proposals were built.

Documenting this project are sketches, studies, and working drawings. Textual material includes project documentation, competition documentation, and correspondence. Photographic material documents the model.
