This atypical architect from Seville made a name for himself practicing architecture that navigates between political activism and art. Over the past fifteen years, he has developed his work through meticulous observation and analysis of the city, identifying its needs and filling in the gaps wherever he finds them. His instant and portable architecture is a display of creativity that proposes new models for a new society, seeing architecture as a discipline that should improve the social condition, and citizens as active decision-makers of their built environment.
