Based in Catalonia and the 2017 Pritzker Architecture Prize laureates, Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, and Ramón Vilalta have developed a radical type of architecture that is both stylistically and physically grounded in its local context as well as committed to nature. Key themes in the work of RCR Arquitectes include connections between indoor and outdoor spaces, the passing of time, structure and materiality, and the dematerialisation of spaces. This instalment covers more than 20 recent projects from around the globe. Highlights include Enigma restaurant in Barcelona, De Krook Library in Ghent, Soulages Museum in Rodez, Dubai’s Muraba Residences, and more.
