Auzo Factory Irazabal Matiko ha sido seleccionado para formar parte de los contenidos del Pabellón Español en la Bienal de Arquitectura de Venecia de 2016. La muestra lleva por título Unfinished y será inaugurada el 26 de mayo.
Todo proyecto, independientemente de su escala, debe gobernarse por una idea. Un concepto a partir del cual establecer una identidad propia y original, una literalidad que unifique su génesis y explique su materialización. Según este principio, la Sala de Alcaldes del Ayuntamiento de Bilbao trata de conseguir un nuevo espacio que acompañe y amplifique el contenido expuesto, los retratos de los sucesivos alcaldes de la Villa.

Plot 501: The proposal offers, at the same time, a singular architecture according to its specific place and the maximun number of houses permitted by urban regulations. The corner of the new building takes into account its singular condition as entrance to the village, so that it is designed as an abstract composition of planes and voids. A part of the south roof is removed to get a sundeck terrace with nice views.
Cossonay is a small village were life is quiet and related to nature. Its scale and its low density configure a valuable architectonic and landscaping context for its inhabitants. The Chavannes area is not an exception so we propose a group of small school and sport buildings embedded in this context. The idea separates the program in three minor scale buildings which, however, maintain the same identity.
Designing educational spaces for children means understanding little worlds based on flexible rooms where furniture and diverse objects create imaginative situations. Large rooms or typical schemes with fixed classrooms and hallways must be avoided to fulfill our purpose.
Located in the historic city center, the Plaza del Grano is the last great urban space in León that survives with all the physical singularities of the ancient city. Its most important values such us the stone pavement and the two ancient poplars must be preserved, restored and reconciled with the needs of the contemporary city.
The planning for Sector SSUNC 33 in Ponferrada (León) has been designed taking into account the existing context, traffic and pedestrian fluxes, commercial and housing densities and the potentiality of the area as a new activity centre for the city. The project arranges new buildings in the southern part, creating a big surface with gardens and a plaza.
The project for the Plaza Mayor offers the opportunity to study its history to recover and update its most important values. It is not a simple restoration, but a contemporary reinterpretation in order to give new uses, new image and an efficient materiality to the Plaza. The project reinforces its horizontal condition and the existing materials, and introduces green areas and a canopy with plants in the perimeter.
Located in a business park with access to good transportation infrastructures, very close to the beltway and the new entry to the city through the north, the Sacred Art Business Park is an initiative of the Seville City Council, which wanted to address the needs of a deeply rooted professional field in the Andalusian capital, that of religious crafts.
The Sacred Art Business Park is completed with a building for social and public interest services, PEASS Building, which covers the demand for exhibition, training, entertainment and interaction among the different trades, as well as the administration offices. Similar on the outside to the rest of the buildings of the complex, its monumental lobby, a cubic space clad with Macael marble, is linked by its position to the main street of the park.
The transition from cave dwelling to the primitive cabin, during the Mousterian period more than 40,000 years ago, marked the historic origin of Architecture. Taking this event as its reference point, the Neanderthal Center of Piloña aims to be the constructed expression or the architectural representation of that very transcendent moment for Humanity, and not merely a container for contents.
