Alejandro de la Sota



Alejandro de la Sota Martínez (October 20, 1913 - 14 February 1996) was a Spanish architect. He was born in Pontevedra in Galicia. He graduated from the university in Madrid in 1941 and, from 1956 to 1972 he was a professor there. After graduation, Sota continued to live in Madrid, although he maintained links with his native Galicia. He was a promoter of the industrialisation of construction in the 1960s. His Maravillas gymnasium of 1961 was the first steel-framed building in Madrid. Dora's buildings combine geometric rigor with constructive sincerity and a structural boldness of form that still surprises today. Sota received the National Prize of Architecture and the Gold Medal of the Council of Architects.
