MIAS Architects at Centre Pompidou
Tracing through the pieces being published, you sense that Josep Mias is essentially a man who takes strips and edges and develops them into meshes, and then maybe combs, and then maybe honeycombs with a conspicuously boyish delight in making the sketch, the linear diagram, the scale model and the built building.
Underlying the apparently fearless is a sense of what can fly, swing, lurch, lean or rest: in other words the composite that makes something possible to be as it is in space.

As a kid who wanted to be an architect you could either make clay shapes, drag pieces of driftwood into vague boxes – or put together Meccano cages.
