Style and Work

Since the 1980s, Vázquez Consuegra, along with other Andalusian architects such as Antonio Cruz Villalón and Antonio Ortiz García , have broken the bipolarity formed by Madrid and Barcelona within 20th- century Spanish architecture . One of the most recurrent elements within his architecture is the patio, to which he knows how to transmit great plasticity and beauty, the probable heir to the Sevillian patio and of which the Town Hall of Tomares is a good example.
