DESIGN FOR THE MILITARY GOVERNMENT BUILDING OF VALENCIA

Architectural drawing with ink and watercolour for the Captaincy General of Valencia designed around 1935 by Juan Cámpora Rodríguez, Tomás Asensio Andrés, Juan Gordillo Nieto and Miguel Niudo. Size: approx.. 65 x 65 cm.

At the end of the 1930s, against the then picturesque backdrop of Valencia’s El Pla del Remei neighborhood (in Spanish: El llano del Remedio), an imposing structure was planned with a multifaceted purpose. It was to embody a fusion of military governance (“Gobierno Militar”), cultural enrichment (“Centro Cultural de los Ejercitios”), and officer residence (“Residentia de Officiales”). Its foundations were laid with the intent to symbolize the intersection of discipline, creativity, and community within the armed forces.

The building of the Gobierno Militar was eventually constructed without the turret and still stands today on the corner of Calle de Justícia and Carrer Archer y Anne Huntington.

Engineer Juan Cámpora founded the Spanish Servicio Militar de Construcciones (SMC) in 1947.
