Oab (Updated): Office of Architecture in Barcelona (English)

By Carlos Ferrater
OAB draws on the collaborative nature of the Carlos Ferrater previous studio, incorporating new ways of understanding the contributions of each team member to generate richer and more varied, prepared and flexible projects. The creation of this new platform attempts to address the challenges that contemporary architecture has raised in intellectual, social, technological, and environmental spheres.

The contents are organized as a collection of chapters that turn the spotlight on both projects and recently built works. These convey a willingness to work in different scenarios, expanding and enriching the range of proposals in the pursuit of new avenues of formal expression. The book covers the theoretical aspects of each project, focusing on innovation, research, and the application of new technologies. At the same time, as we explore each project's development, emphasis is placed upon context, the building's objectives, and the social roots of the architect's work.

"This color illustrated retrospective celebrates the work of the Carlos Ferrater Studio and its development into the Office of Architecture in Barcelona, over the period from 1970 to the present. The book features color and b&w photos on every page, most full page, along with color illustrations, plans, and designs, profiling numerous urban, residential, and waterfront projects and innovative technologies for sustainability and preservation of architectural heritage in Barcelona and around the world, including Barcelona Botanical Garden, Granada Science Park, Roca Barcelona Gallery, the Law Society in France, Canyon Ranch Hotel in Turkey, and Tangier Waterfront in Morocco." --Eithne O'Leyne, ProtoView
