Through a language of industrial materials, Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz demonstrate their technological prowess while at the same time creating simple geometries expressive of a spare modernism. Their work displays a remarkable ability to fuse the traditional architecture of their native Seville with the novelty of their abstract explorations of form.Works presented include Sevilles Santa Justa Train Station, the Madrid Community Sports Stadium, the Huelva Bus Station, and a Housing Estate project in Tharsis. Cruz/Ortiz also contains a complete chronology of buildings and projects and an introduction by Rafael Moneo. The monograph documents the teams impressive work through numerous photographs and drawings, accompanied by project descriptions and commentary.Cruz and Ortiz are the recipients of the First National Prize for Spanish Architecture. Their work has been exhibited internationally
