Award Entry

Spanish architects Comas-Pont highlight the importance of the specific characteristics of place 

At Comas-Pont arquitectes, inspiration is drawn from analysing the relationship of a building to its surroundings and its programme. The design becomes a reflection of that.

Each project represents an opportunity to capture feelings of that place, of the climate and of the people. The building programme gives meaning to its architecture through the space proportions, connections and light for example. Everything is combined to provide the ideal climate for each specific use. A correspondence is made between the building and specific cultural references of the site and its context, to get a sense of belonging.

Thus, the representation, the building scale, construct solutions and materials are always subject to the programme and context, achieving a specific architecture every time.
