This article, presents, analyses and discusses the Diagonal Beethoven Building, an unexplored work by one of Spain’s leading 20th-century architects, Jose Antonio Coderch. The building displays elements that are characteristic of the architect, in large part rooted in the tradition that forged his highly distinguished style. From the search for light and user-focused solutions for curves, windows, courtyards and corners to the smallest of interior details, which highlight his skill in the resolution of construction joints and his handling of materials, Coderch applied his architectural style in single-family homes, multi-family homes and office blocks. This article helps to expand our understanding of his work and its evolution, providing a common thread, because of their shared period, use and geographical proximity, that includes some of his emblematic projects broadening our knowledge of his legacy and the era in which he lived.
