Description

The book offers a survey of the work of Carlos Ferrater, one of the most active and internationally-acclaimed Spanish architects. Carlos Ferrater Lambarri was born in 1944 in Barcelona, where he graduated in architecture at the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in 1971. Since then he has worked as a designer in a professional studio, the architect Joan Guibernau becoming an associate in 1993. In 2001 he was appointed Professor of the Reale Academia Catalana de Belles Artes de Sant Jordi. His major realizations include the residential complex of Sant Just Desvern in Barcelona, the extension project for Venice Cemetery and the "Rey Juan Carlos I" hotel in Barcelona. His originality lies in his art of combining modernism with particular features of local architecture. Ferrater's buildings, contrasting with urban realities, highlight the Mediterranean lifestyle. His latest designs, like the Impiva (Instituto de la pequena y mediana empresa de Valencia) Technology Research Centre at Castellon de la Plana, the Arruga Film Studios in Barcelona and the Congress Centre of Catalunia, reveal a new maturity in his prolific and increasingly reflective career.
