OAB FERRATER AND PARTNERS (SP ED.)

OAB FERRATER AND PARTNERS (SP ED.)

Recent architectural projects by Carlos Ferrater and his Office of Architecture Barcelona (OAB) Carlos Ferrater, Borja Ferrater With the publication of the book Synchronizing Geometry, in 2006 the baseline of a typical OAB theoretical discourse was established in which a series of projects under development or construction stressed the importance of a theoretical background in the professional practice of architecture. A few years later, this book arrives showing the work carried out and now going into more depth on the direction and approach of Ferrater / OAB. It also analyses and reflects on the career of Carlos Ferrater, as well as the results of the development of a new office involving a group of young architects, including family members. The book explains how from experience and the examination and manipulation of some complex geometries a critical and theoretical vision of reality is established, assuming at all times rigour, social roots, landscape and construction. For this reason, the book also reveals how the activity of OAB is not only developed in the execution of construction projects, but how it is also complemented and enriched by going into depth in other fields such as teaching and academic research. This book illustrates how, from over 35 years experience on Carlos Ferrater's part, and the emergence and participation of a group of young architects ( such as Xavier Martí Galí, Lucia and Borja Ferrater, Nuria Ayala, Alberto Peñín etc. ), a new concept of professional office has taken shape.
OAB (Updated)

OAB (Updated)

Office of Architecture in Barcelona Carlos Ferrater & Partners OAB draws on the collaborative nature of the Carlos Ferrater previous studio, incorporating new ways of understanding the contributions of each team member to generate richer and more varied, prepared and flexible projects. The creation of this new platform attempts to address the challenges that contemporary architecture has raised in intellectual, social, technological, and environmental spheres. The contents are organized as a collection of chapters that turn the spotlight on both projects and recently built works. These convey a willingness to work in different scenarios, expanding and enriching the range of proposals in the pursuit of new avenues of formal expression. The book covers the theoretical aspects of each project, focusing on innovation, research, and the application of new technologies. At the same time, as we explore each project’s development, emphasis is placed upon context, the building’s objectives, and the social roots of the architect’s work. See Preview on issuu

Geometric Taxonomy (SP ED.)

Carlos Ferrater, OAB Geometric Taxonomy gets closer to the geometries of Carlos Ferrater and OAB that are present in timeless architecture, those that are explicit in the great treatises, those that dazzled us with “the correct and magnificent wise play of forms under the light”, the elemental forms that inspired modernity a hundred years ago. __ Ignacio Paricio English edition
