New exhibition at The Arches of Ministry

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

The broad avenues of Barcelona, Bilbao, Granada, Murcia, Valencia and Zaragoza star in other major exposure routes

The Ministry of Housing rescues the story of six major roads not so well known Spanish as Madrid but just as emblematic of their cities and their inhabitants

Six experts have provided documentation of the sample, which contains videos, maps and photos up to 120 years old and current images

Included in the Festival program PHotoEspaña 2010 can be visited from Friday until September 5

The exhibition hall of the Ministry of Housing, The Arches of Ministry, has hosted this Friday, July 2 until September 5, the other major routes, a show that invites you to visit the Via Laietana Barcelona, Gran Via Bilbao, Western Avenue Valencia, Gran Via de Colon in Granada, Gran Vía sculptor Francisco Salzillo of Murcia and the Paseo de la Gran Vía de Zaragoza.

With this exhibition, organized while celebrating the centennial of the Gran Via in Madrid, the Ministry of Housing rescues the story of these six major Spanish way perhaps not as pictured or mentioned as Madrid but also have transformed the landscape of cities and the daily lives of its inhabitants.

They are also the six examples mentioned by classic Spanish urban history.

Architects and historians, all university professors and lecturers who have many years the main roads as a topic of study and analysis are the scientific committee that prepared the contents, carefully coordinated by the commissioner, the architect Ricardo Sanchez Lampreave.

Thus, José María Rovira has developed information Barcelona, Nieves and Maria Jesus Pacho Basurto of Bilbao, Isac Angel of Granada, Felipe Iracheta of Murcia, Francisco Taveras of Valencia, and Javier Monclús e Iñaki Bergera of Zaragoza.

All of them participate on Friday at 10.00 am in the Archery in a day which will offer a presentation on their respective great way.

Current and past images, even 120 years old

To accompany the visitors on their journey through the history and evolution of these six major roads and architecture, the other major routes displays old photographs, historical maps, postcards, drawings and a series of documents, letters, magazines, books, records, " all originals and some even 120 years old.

Up to 33 files, libraries, institutions and individuals have given this material.

The current view is through actual photographs taken in recent months specifically for the show, including panoramic and aerial photographs of every major road.

A complete video material is exposed to every avenue.

The other major routes is displayed in three rooms of the Archery

The first contains the introduction, a map of Spain of the six major players way, a comparative chronology of the most significant events that occurred in Spain and in the six cities between 1865 and 1965, and a video with a conversation between three experts: Academic of Fine Arts and Professor of Urban Fernando Terán, Professor José María Ezquiaga Planning and Urban Planning Professor Daniel Bush.

The second room is subdivided into six areas devoted to each of the cities through panels.

They hang the plans and drawings relating to the operation of each city urban and contemporary photographs.

In display cases include vintage books and documents, photographs and old postcards.

That is, in each of the cities, it tells the story of his great track and is confronted with a photo essay commissioned to show their current status.

The last room is open plan with walls full of plans, drawings and original photographs of the most important buildings of every major road and having among its architects accountable Lluis Domenech i Muntaner, Josep Puig, Manuel María de Smith, Peter Muguruza, Gaspar Blein, Javier Goerlich, Secundino Zuazo or Borobio Regino.

Medieval high street to the main roads

After the main street and boulevard medieval illustrated in the late nineteenth century and during the first third of the twentieth century raised a number of major roads in the wake of the reforms Parisian Haussmann or Ildefonso Cerdá for internal reforms Barcelona or Madrid.

Some did turned into the main shaft of a Widening Plan, as in the case of Bilbao.

Others, however, in an operation to reform the Interior, as appropriate, besides their Madrid, Granada and Valencia.

But if something have in common is that they were right to intervene in the historic, Gando single plot and opening roads (able to put in communication two railway stations located at opposite ends das, as is the case of Murcia), or by extending the old boundary of the city and drawing in the new space a rectangular layout.

In any case where both types of intervention Supu sieron a clear rejection of the historic fabric, that is, the city's past.

Explains the curator, Ricardo Sánchez Lampreave, are also characterized all of them because they sought to "facilitate and improve the flow between two points that needed to be related, and this is about the advent of the automobile in the city early last century," and improve hygiene and sanitation of medieval urban fabric in historic compact and very marked limits. "

"They became a distinct possibility as well in business, he adds. They are very characteristic of this time, as shown in the exhibition, drawings delineating properties, very straight lines crossed by redefining new lots at the edges. At the same time, are agglutinating trade, as they spend to become a showcase of some economic functions and social gatherings. "

And finally, they have all functions of representation and a visual appearance essential.

Here is where it plays an important role the architecture, buildings, architecture because of the great highway should also be representative, must present the best architecture of that time and the best architects of the corresponding city, and therefore must be understood as strongly modernizing "he says.

Now and future of major roads

Visit to the other major pathways not only shows the history of these six routes but raises questions about its future.

Because, planned for a much lower volume of vehicles at present, even for some gigs, and life and technology from another time, a century later focus new questions: what to do with them, how to use and exploit in a very different reality to which promoted.

Examples are the recent discussions in Barcelona with different solutions in Valencia Diagonal Cabanyal.

"The future of all is to continue to serve his city with maximum efficiency. To be able to maintain its initial strength, are likely to address major or minor changes, depending on their difficulty to accommodate growth and functionality required by each cities, "concludes Sánchez Lampreave.

Via Laietana Barcelona

Via Laietana Barcelona is directly connected in its origin with Ildefonso Cerdà.

Cerdà envisioned in his famous map of the Eixample in Barcelona connecting the new city under the sea through what he called Gran Via A, the present Via Laietana.

It was a road, cutting the old town, a tangent to the walls of the Gothic quarter (for so were uncovered in a stretch), would fall directly to the sea.

In fact, down, existing buildings and Transmediterránea Post, which then think and plan, defined from the city then known as the Gateway to the sea.

A peculiarity of the Via Laietana, that relates to Chicago, is the appearance of office buildings for rent, with buildings with plants, rather than present domestic distributions, were empty, ready to be divided according to tenant needs.

La Gran Via de Bilbao

La Gran Via de Bilbao, next to Zaragoza, the only one way to expand the old city, linked by both its Extension.

The river and its channel orographic determined the maximum length.

Although it was thought to be one since the first proposals of the late nineteenth century, was built in two phases: first Elliptical to the Plaza and to the Sacred Heart and San Mames, its end, then.

Gran Via is the sharpest financial factor for the significance of the Bank in its construction and momentum.

In fact, Gran Via 1, BBVA's current headquarters in the Plaza Circular, was the first bank building was constructed in these Gran Vía, first as the headquarters of Bank of Commerce, and later, with the existing building, the Banco de Vizcaya .

La Gran Via de Colon in Granada

La Gran Via de Colon in Granada, the street originally called Columbus, in his particular story has a rarity: a unique urban project for the construction of the Gran Vía (as we understand today), prepared by the municipal architect with relevant memory, measurement and budget specifications (which can be seen in one of the cases) to the corresponding promoter, then created for that purpose, Reformer Granada.

An anecdote, also unique, which describes well the aspirations of the burgeoning middle class definitely the beginning of the twentieth century, is in its early construction of a replica of a Parisian building winning here last year.

La Gran Vía de Murcia sculptor Francisco Salzillo

La Gran Vía de Murcia is the last to be built, and in fact, the last buildings constructed in all of them are in Murcia.

His story is also exciting.

Parallel to the river Segura, as might be the case of Zaragoza and the Ebro, the ancient city ordered a second train station north of the city to improve traffic and complement the first, linked to the Mediterranean corridor, with its own garden.

Since the first proposals of the 20's spent half a century to be completed, only the third proposal, absolutely possibilistic.

In fact, it alone is not straight, and ends by bifurcating the city have been settled before the ring road, with their roundabouts, which the Gran Vía interior.

An anecdote explains these difficulties: the Bank of Spain facade was built to give the second proposal, and then had to change its position because the United Way had fallen short on his back.

Western Avenue Valencia

Its main reason, apart from the broader sharing with others, the need to facilitate access to the city's central market.

So originally scheduled Avenue from the old Augustinian convent to the river passing tangent to the rear of the Market.

And so, the construction of the first half, now called Avenida del Barón de Cárcer, reaches the back of the market, stopping there.

The latest proposals, and slightly sinuous in the sixties to cross the district of Carmen and reach the river, were not successful and growing sensitivity to the protectionist.

Paseo de la Gran Vía de Zaragoza

La Gran Via de Zaragoza, Bilbao tied as the expansion of the city, used the burial of a stretch of river Huerva in the then outskirts of the city.

In fact, runs entirely on the channel leading from the river, and this is the reason for its wide tree-lined and last bend before continuing with the present Avenida de los Reyes Católicos.

As the Gran Via in Madrid, incorporated cinemas to residential buildings today, its future is tied to the tram, it is being implemented.

Archery Nuevos Ministerios (Paseo de la Castellana, 67), open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00 to 14.00 and from 17.00 to 21.00 h, and Sundays from 10.00 to 14.00 h.

Cerdá recalled that the first biological control techniques "began to be applied in the region a decade ago" and noted that "90 percent of the surface of pepper is subject to these biological practices that allow us to eliminate the main pests and reduce use of plant protection products. "

Transfer of results

Held responsible for Agriculture, after visiting the areas of emissions, a meeting with farmers and producers in the Technology Transfer Center of El Mirador to present the results achieved so far in implementing these systems.
