완공 4개월전에 멈춰선 스페인 문화유산 연구소는 1967년에 건설을 시작한 이래로, 1990년이 될때까지 미완성 상태로 남겨져 있었다. 그러다가 2001년이 되서야 문화 유산으로 지정, 복원되었다.
그동안 여러곳이 원래의 모습과 다르게 재생, 복원되어 사용되고 있다.
Designed in 1960 by Fernando Higueras, the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute in Madrid (Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural), also known as “La Corona de Espinas” ( The Crown of Thorns), is recognized as an original and interesting union of constructivist, rationalist, and organic architecture.
Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute Technical Information
Architects : Fernando Higueras (1930-2008), Rafael Moneo, Antonio Miró (1931-2011)
Location: Calle del Greco, 4, Madrid, Spain
Oficial Name: Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España
Typology: Cultural Architecture / Heritage Building
Topics: Constructivist, Organic, Circular
Project Year: 1960–1990
The Headquarters of the Cultural Heritage Institute project in Spain was won in a competition by architects Fernando Higueras, Antonio Miró, and Rafael Moneo. The program, “An artistic Restoration Center,” was organized in a circular building layout.
Construction started in 1967. However, four months before the completion date, the project ran out of money, and the building remained unfinished for years. It wasn’t until 1990 that the building was renovated. In 2001 it was recognized as a Heritage Site of Cultural Interest.
Its form changed over the years. The original design was composed of a pyramid, but the built design resulted from inverting the voids. The building’s form is a 40-meter radius circle divided into 30 sections and 56 frames. It has 4 stories with a big courtyard in the middle and 5 inner courtyards with interior gardens.
Today it’s commonly referred to as the “crown of thorns” due to its imposing round shape topped with jutted spiked points.
