At last, it has arrived. Months ago (July 12, 2016) we published the information transmitted to us, announcing the inauguration of the the exhibition "Camera and model. Fotografía de maquetas de arquitectura en España, 1925–1970" in September in the exhibition hall of the Archery of Nuevos Ministerios. The exhibition was initially conceived as a part of PHE16 and had a catalog published since July. In the end, it has been carried out just now and inaugurated in the ICO Museum yesterday, the 16th of February.
This volume emerges as exhibition catalog held in the exhibition hall of Fundación ICO (Madrid), within the framework of the PHotoEspaña festival. A project developed under the direction of his principal investigator and curator, the architect and professor Iñaki Bergera, as continuity to the works and initiatives carried out in the Photography and Modern Architecture in Spain (FAME) research project.

La Fábrica starts a new project paying tribute to the photograph of models as a means of architectural representation, a publication that rescued more than a hundred original photographs of authors like Català-Roca, Kindel, Pando, Llado, Maspons-Ubiña Gomez or Massats, with works by architects such as Aizpurúa, De la Sota or Higueras. Again, this publication makes for the homonymous exhibition catalog, within the Official Section of PHotoEspaña 2016 festival, curated by Iñaki Bergera.
