Félix Candela: 1910-2010 (February 11–March 31, 2012) traveling exhibition at the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University, New York. The exhibition celebrates life and feats of architectural engineering of one of the greatest Spanish-born architects of the 20th century. Candela’s curvaceous, thin-shell roofs based on the hyperbolic paraboloid geometric form are presented through large scale original drawings, photographs, models, films, notebooks, sketches, family photographs, and letters.
The exhibition was originally presented in 2010 at the Institut Valencià d'Art Modern on the occasion of the centenary celebrations of Candela's birth. It subsequently traveled to the Museo Extermeño de Arte Iberoamericano (MEIAC) of Badajoz, Spain and Museum of Modern Art of México City. The exhibition is organized and circulated by the Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
