Although Manuel Gallego’s architecture cannot be formally assigned to any form of fashion, and is without any stamp or signature that distinguishes it from other architects, his work has been absolutely personal and completely consistent through the years. Gallego’s coherence is the starting point for this overview of his practice, all of which has taken place in Galicia, in north-western Spain. A professor of urban planning whose work is characterised by attention for detail, he is a master of all scales. This publication brings these perhaps less widely known yet important buildings to the forefront, while also acknowledging the debt Spanish architecture owes to his singular vision.
