Seminario Antón García-Abril e Débora Mesa - Ensamble Studio ARQUITECTURA DE LA TIERRA

Complesso del Santa Chiara, Aula Juharia 1° piano

Ca'n Terra is the house of the earth. The fruit that nature gives us, as a found space. If the history of civilization has greatly evolved transforming ideas into built work, in Ca'n Terra, the process is inverted and history interpreted to transform it into architecture.

The discovered space has industrial logic as former Mares stone quarry, artistic potential as sublime cavern carved by hand, and mineral nature as extract of the stony landscape on the island of Menorca. In lieu of an imposing action that many times architecture exerts on the environment, we propose a trip to the interior being of matter, and recognize the freedom with which it gives us spaces to live.

 

Ensamble Studio is a cross-functional team founded in 2000 and led by architects Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa. In the 20 years of practice Ensamble Studio has managed to win various awards and recognitions.
