The thesis of a professor of the UPCT on the first holiday cities, awarded by the College of Architects of Huelva (11/10/2018)

The doctoral research of the professor of the School of Architecture and Building (ETSAE) of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT) Ricardo Carcelén González has been distinguished with the only Special Mention in Architectural Research in the XXV Architecture Award convened by the Official College of Arquitectos de Huelva, awarded last Monday, October 1, at the Gran Teatro de Huelva, coinciding with the World Architecture Day.

The thesis of the teacher of the UPCT, entitled 'When the working class became a tourist' and directed by doctors Vicente Mas Llorens (UPV) and Ricard Pié i Ninot (UPC), represents an advance in the knowledge of the holiday model of the Work Union Education and Rest during the Franco regime, "a phenomenon ignored in the debate on how mass tourism was generated in our country", according to the author.

The jury, which agreed to grant the distinction unanimously, valued "the great work done in research and dissemination, making known the holiday cities of the OSED (Trade Union Education and Rest), executed in Tarragona, Marbella and Perlora, and the typologies that formed them as a new model of management in the territory of workers' rest, always on the seafront and characterized by their low density, typical of the Garden City model. "

To this is added the fact of "putting in value, and making known, the resort town of Punta Umbria, written by the local architect Francisco de la Corte, framed within the modern movement, and want to tell facts related to local models of economic productivity ".

The thesis also documents another unpublished and unknown set of holiday resorts in Guardamar del Segura.

The researcher of the UPCT notes in his thesis how the model of a holiday city promoted by the Franco regime, with social and indoctrination purposes, goes into decline as of the sixties before the boom of the private tourist sector and the new state objective of attract millions of foreign visitors.

The thesis, as well as the explanatory panels of the same, can be visited at the Huelva collegiate headquarters during the next weeks as part of the exhibition dedicated to the XXV COAH Architecture Awards.
