Due to the emergence of concepts such as the Antropocene linked to the climate crisis, to the higher relevance of technology in all spheres of our daily routines, or to the implosion of concepts such as gender, it seems that it no longer makes sense to continue working from the construction of reality through binary relationships (nature-culture, man-woman, rational-irrational…). Architecture, as a practice with a main role in the construction of our societies cannot ignore these issues.
The proposal is based on the indistinct work with different kinds of materialities that are mediated through the disciplinary knowledge of structure and construction and the contribution of contemporary technology.
Takk // Mireia Luzárraga + Alejandro Muiño is a space for architectural production based in Barcelona and Madrid focused in the development of experimental and speculative material practices in theintersection between nature and culture in the contemporary framework.
Their work has been showed in international events such as the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014 and 2018 (IT), the Orléans Architecture Biennale 2017 and 2019 (FR), the Rabat Biennale 2019 (MA), the Porto Biennale (PT), the San Sebastian Architectural Biennale 2017 (ES) and the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 (NO), among others.
Part of their work belongs to the permanent collection of FRAC Centre Val de Loire (FR).
Additionally to their professional practice Mireia Luzárraga and Alejandro Muiño are Master Tutors at IAAC (Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, ES), teachers in Architectural Design atUA (Universidad de Alicante, ES), and at BAU (Barcelona Design University Centre, ES).
