Scope and content:
This project series documents a competition for the Ciudad del Flamenco de Jerez de la Frontera in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 56/00. The office assigned the date 2002 to this project.
The competition for the Ciudad del Flamenco was part of an urban revitalization project for the historic center of Jerez. The competition was organized by the Ayuntamiento de Jerez. Six proposals were presented to the jury, including a design by Àlvaro Siza and Juan Miguel Hernández León. The project included the design of an auditorium, a museum, a documentation and research center, a school, and communal spaces. The buildings were to host The National Auditorium of Flamenco Art, the Museum and the Center for Investigation, and Documentation of the Art of Flamenco (CIDAF). The proposal was "a complex of prisms and courtyards wisely articulated between one another, rounded off by a sculptural trapezoidal and cantilevering piece'' (http://ciudaddelflamenco.jerez.es/flash/concurso.pdf p. 6). Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron's proposal won the competition.
Documenting this project are studies, competition drawings, and plans. Textual documentation includes correspondence with the client and competition documentation.
