Architect and professor from Barcelona. I combine practice with teaching and lecturing in cultural institutions and venues.
In 2004 I founded the design firm XVA in Barcelona where I am the creative director of a talented group of architects and designers coming from different backgrounds and nationalities. XVA early projects were in Spain and nowadays most of them are being designed and built in several African countries and the Middle East.
XVA projects have been recognized by international awards such as the Young Architect of the year at the Leaf Awards 2008, and two consecutive awards, 2009 and 2010, the SAIE Selection of the energy exhibition of Bologna in Italy for the sustainability of their designs.
Nature and People and how to connect them through the design of Contemporary Vernacular Architecture.
The idea of innovation in Architecture is related to create something new. I believe that innovation is in the design process that integrates the available resources and traditions.
Yourself, Arts and Technology.
