I was born in Barcelona in 1977. I studied architecture at the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona, attending the fifth year at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Before graduating I did two practices as a student in the Urban Planning Offices in the City of Barcelona, and also in the study of Germà Català Torres, architect in Sant Just Desvern.
I was five years in the studio Arquitectura Produccions, leaded by Miquel Roa, collaborating on building projects and urban development in the metropolitan area of Barcelona and the towns in Llobregat river area. At the end of this stage the housing crisis began in Spain, and I found a place as an architect in the studio of Ricardo Bofill, also located in Sant Just Desvern, but with great international projection. There I had the opportunity to work on urban scale projects located throughout the world, with a team of professionals specialized in different disciplines such as design, construction, project management, CAD design, administration, logistics, etc. A crisis again, this time on an international scale, especially in Asia, does diminish the department where I was the last years, and I’m invited kindly and generously to seek for new professional adventures. So here begins my current career as freelance architect.
My studio, located in the town of Calafell, is well connected with Barcelona and the entire coastline of Catalonia. Also, by proximity, with the regions of Penedes, Camp, Tarragonès, Baix Llobregat and Garraf. I offer my professional services as architect in this region, as a collaborator, consultant or manager human teams.
