HARQUITECTES is an architecture studio established in 2000 and based in Sabadell, Barcelona. It is managed by four partner architects: David Lorente Ibáñez (Granollers, 1972), Josep Ricart Ulldemolins (Cerdanyola del Vallès, 1973), Xavier Ros Majó (Sabadell, 1972) and Roger Tudó Galí (Terrassa, 1973). All of them licensed between 1998 and 2000 in the E.T.S.A. Vallès, where Josep and Roger teaches Projects and Construction subjects. Xavier also teaches Projects in the E.T.S.A. Barcelona.
Their work has received some recognitions and awards – for built works and also in ideas competitions - and it has been published in many national and international media, been selected for several exhibitions and invited as lecturers in many events in Europe and America.
HARQUITECTES, Appropriate, Attractive, Affordable has just been published this January by AV Monographs. The twelve projects published in this new monograph are all beautifully executed works of great material economy.
The lecture by partner Xavier Ros Majó is the second of the ‘Form-Givers’ Lecture Series at The Cass, organised by senior lecturer James Payne.
The lecture series is about young practices throughout Europe, confident and inventive ‘Form-Givers’ who are delivering their first projects. Lecturers will discuss architectural language and form in their practice, research or teaching.
