BIO

Adrián Martínez (Seville, 1989) studied architecture at ETSA Seville and ENSA Paris La Villette, graduating from the University of Seville in 2014. His final degree project received the highest distinction having been awarded numerous first prizes. One of the most remarkable was the participation in the Spanish Pavilion at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale 2018. During his last year of studies, he worked at the MGM-Morales de Giles office in Seville. As an architect he collaborated in the office of Rafael Moneo (Pritzker Prize 1996) in Madrid from 2015 to 2018, participating actively in projects of different scales and programs, from the phase of conceptualization to the construction details. He maintains a parallel activity as a researcher, being a member of the Department of History, Theory, and Architectural Composition of ETSA Seville since 2018, where he combines his teaching activity with his Ph.D. in progress. He has recently been selected by the RCC and the US for a research fellowship grant at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.

BIO

Guillermo Avanzini (Bilbao, 1989) studied architecture at ETSA Madrid and ENSA Paris La Villette graduating from UPM in 2015. Still as a student he started to collaborate along with several Madrid based practices such as FRPO, Selgas Cano -where he worked on the proposal for a pavilion for the Expo 2015 in Milan- or Moneo Brock. In 2016 he took part in the competition for the “Nou Camp Nou” in Barcelona as a member of the IDOM-BIG-BAAS team. In 2018 he started a phase in Bilbao where he, with other local architects as well as on his own, has worked on some residential projects of different scales: colective dwelling developments, single family houses, refurbishment, etc. This career path has given him a holistic view of architecture, providing him with a constructive aproach since early stages of the project.
