The Miguel Fisac Foundation in collaboration with the Institute for Castilla-La Mancha Tourism Promotion have published a new book with the title “Tourist Routes through 50 Emblematic Buildings of the 20th Century in Castilla-La Mancha”. The book proposes an architectonic itinerary through the most significant buildings in the five provinces that form Castilla-La Mancha.

 The publication of this book has been coordinated and carried out by Ricardo Sanchez Lampreave, one of the Heads of Department of the Miguel Fisac Foundation with the help of Juan Garcia Millan, an architect colleague.

 This book includes the Instituto Laboral in Daimiel, the Casa de la Cultura in Cuenca, both by the architect Miguel Fisac, amongst others, as buildings worth visiting.

The conference titled “A What for, a How and an I Don’t Know What” was organized by the Architects Association of Valladolid. Francisco Arques Soler, architect from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid and one of the chairmen of the Miguel Fisac Foundation was in charge.

 This conference is part of a series of conferences dedicated to Miguel Fisac that has taken place in the Patio Herreriano, Spanish Contemporary Art Museum in Valladolid. José Ignacio Zarandona, chairman of the city’s Architects Association in this city was in charge of the presentation and it included the participation of Ramon Ruiz-Valdepeñas, chairman of the Miguel Fisac Foundation.

 The fourth, and final, conference of this series A What for, a How and an I Don’t Know What sought to show Miguel Fisac’s work methodology, the way he did and understood architecture rather than just his works. Accordingly, Francisco Arques, expert connoisseur of Fisac’s works, explained the Parts of Architecture into which Fisac divided the architectonic reality. Four parts that can be independent and, at the same time, connected on the basis of four questions: What for? Where? How? And an “I don’t know what”.
