Architecture at Conde Duque. Guided tours program
Centro Conde Duque. Calle Conde Duque, 9-11. Madrid
Conceived to become a new driving force for culture focused on the memory of Madrid, the reopening of the Conde Duque provides a unique chance to see the secrets of one of Madrid’s most iconic buildings, dating originally from the 18th century.
With the aim of tracing the dialogue between the past and present of its architecture, which can now be appreciated with greater precision than ever before, hablarenarte: is scheduling a dual programme of tours enabling people to get an in-depth view of how the spaces have been transformed, and enjoy its new cultural programme:
La historia de Conde Duque. Devised to reveal the history of the building, this tour around the new spaces describes the process by which this former military barracks has been transformed into a cultural facility, as well as explaining its key architectural features and how they came about.
El mundo de Zitman. The guided tour looks at the life and work of Dutch sculptor Cornelis Zitman through around one hundred sculptures and various drawings. The retrospective of his work, displayed in Room 3, opens the Conde Duque temporary exhibitions programme.
