Juan Antonio Ramírez: La chute de Babel : pour une histoire de la destruction architecturale

Juan Antonio Ramírez’s interest in architectural history began with his research on the Temple of Jerusalem as an architectural ideal. In more recent years, he has dedicated his research to the study of the European avant-garde in art and architecture.

Ramírez is professor of Art History at the the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. His publications include Duchamp. El amor y la muerte, incluso [Duchamp: Love and Death, even] (1993), Ecosistema y explosion de las artes [Les usines à valeurs] (1994), La metáfora de la colmena. De Gaudí a Le Corbusier [The Beehive Metaphor: From Gaudí to Le Corbusier] (2000), and Dalí: lo crudo y lo podrido [Dalí: The Raw and the Rotten] (2002).

Juan Antonio Ramírez was a CCA Mellon Senior Fellow in 2002.
