Talk by Arquitectura-G, 2015 Mies van der Rohe Emerging Architect Prize, at Foros 2016, “Origin”
To mark the almost ten years since they graduated at the School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona, the members of Arquitectura-G will be giving a talk in the framework of the Foros 2016 cycle, “Origin”, organized by the same university. In their presentation they’ll be looking back over the works they have produced in nearly ten years devoted to medium- and small-scale architecture, awarded the 2015 Mies van der Rohe Emerging Architect Prize.
This Monday 29 February, the School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona, as part of the Foros 2016 cycle, “Origin”, will be hosting a talk by the architects Aitor Fuentes, Jonathan Arnabat, Igor Urdampilleta and Jordi Ayala, founders and members of the Arquitectura-G practice, the work of which, in 2015, was awarded Europe’s mostprestigious prize, the Mies van der Rohe Emerging Architect Prize.
Under the heading “Nearly Ten Years”, the speakers will be looking back over their work, from the early days when they rented a studio to design their end-of-degree course project to the prize awarded by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe for what was their first architecture project, Casa Luz. This review examines their projects, remodelled apartments, exhibitions and shop windows, tracing the leading thread that runs through their body of work, and the characteristics and common strategies of form, concept and material in their different commissions.
Arquitectura-G, a studio set up by students of the School of Architecture, is one of the young Catalan practices with the highest international profile. Today, its members and founders combine work in the studio with teaching projects and construction at the School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona. In 2008, they created Escritos-G, a tool to construct a critical discourse and generate debate about contemporary architecture, and started directing the architecture section of Apartamento magazine. In keeping with their interest in design and made-to-measure solutions, in 2012 they set up Indoors, a brand that publishes, produces and sells domestic objects designed by them and other creators.
