Item description for Victor Rahola by Victor Rahola I. Aguade...
The architecture of Vctor Rahola is rich with a multiplicity of evident references. This monograph explores the whole host of influences from Mies van der Rohe, to Richard Neutra, to Rafeal Moneo. Strong, and explicit, these outside references are both conscious and deliberate while simultaneously contradictory and perhaps even random. In his work Rahola revisits the places of architecture, among them, his own personal professional history, with a very personal gaze: that of the quiet man. Rahola's simplicity and sensitivity enable him to harmoniously incorporate an extensive repertoire of modern references with the indigenous vernacular of the traditional architecture of his native island of Ibiza. Rahola's empathy extends to place and material: from the details of a particular hillside and unique texture of a masonry wall, to the specifics of a certain bioclimatic condition and sculptural effect of a brise-soleil, Rahola captures the emotional aspects that emanate from the creative combination of these many factors.
