History:

Spanish architect. In 1922, he obtained his title of architect from the Higher Technical School of Architecture of Madrid. In 1929, he was named architect for the conservation of monuments of the Ministry of Public Instruction and Fine Arts.

During the Spanish Civil War, he worked along with his borther Ángel, for the Junta Central del Tesoro Artístico, documenting works that belonged to the Spanish artistic heritage.

Once the war was over, he continued directing conservation projects for the Service of National Artistic Heritage Defence. Hence, he became one of the main Spanish architects focused on conservation in the 20th century, as he did it from 1929 till 1975.

Even though he never published anything about his restoration works, there are different reports and memories that he wrote, along with photography collections, kept in the Centro de Documentación de la Demarcación de Lérida of the Colegio de Arquitectos of Catalonia.
