Contributors Rafael Moneo, Juan Jose Lahuerta, Carme Pinós
Not only a complete monograph of Carme Pinós’ architectural oeuvre, Carme Pinós Architectures traces the development of her practice over several decades via an in-depth investigation of the recurring themes and concerns that inform her work.
Through studies of significant city projects and selected works, critical contributions from amongst others, Daniela Colafranceschi, Rafael Moneo, Juan Jose Lahuerta and Carme Pinós herself, come together to elucidate the motivations of one of the most compelling figures currently working in the contemporary architectural landscape. This publication journeys from the early works of Pinós’ office following the conclusion of her collaboration with Enric Miralles, through the evolution of her own emphatic practice—a striking articulation of complex shapes and spaces that maintain a clear commitment to the quality of construction while perfectly integrating with the environment, whether natural or urban. Carme Pinós Architectures is a comprehensive overview of the atypical architectural expression of Carme Pinós’ truly unique and intriguing practice.
