We are Mexican/Spanish architects
and designers, practicing and teaching in Spain and Mexico. We have worked in México City and Barcelona since 1997.
As practicing architects we have built up a network of diverse areas of expertise, with experience on different scales, and with an infrastructure of long-distance cooperation.
Our working process of collaboration, experimentation and a multiscale approach fosters integral design.
Research is crucial to the SOFAR philosophy, nurtures and updates our understanding of the different disciplines. Our research work – Incubation and working environments; Alternative sustainable housing; Tourism and new urban Interiors; The architecture of urban densities and accumulation; Public space in relation to art, architecture and the city; The Ultracity – has enable us to rethink notions of sustainability, recycling, renovation, integrative design, interior & urban design/development.
On teaching, we are directly involved in directing and participating in undergraduate and postgraduate programs. We have benefited from our collaborations with prestige institutions, universities and clusters in Mexico, USA, Canada, Spain, UK and Taiwan.
