The architect José Luis Fernández del Amo responds to the model of a multidisciplinary man. The colonization towns are, in all probability, his most recognized works, claimed today for their organic connection between the urban space and the surrounding nature, or for their ability to organize the relationship between public space and private space in a balanced way. He was a religious and forward-thinking man, clearly ahead of his time.
