Beautifully presented two volume set in a slip case on the architectural career of CarlosFarrater and recent work of OAB, the Office of Architecture in Barcelona. First and complete monograph on the career of Carlos Ferrater. His early buildings showed how the expression of modern architecture, with its abstraction, repetition, transparency and use of industrial materials, could be brought into line with Mediterranean classicism, with the rigor of the composition.


BOOK OAB – 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.


Abstract BOOK CARLOS FERRATER – Before setting up in 2006, along with Xavier Martí, Lucía Ferrater and Borja Ferrater, the Office of Architecture in Barcelona (OAB), Carlos Ferrater developed an intense and prolonged professional career on his own since 1971, with his advanced project for the Instant City. Now we present this first and therefore complete monograph on the unique career of this Catalan architect, Carlos Ferrater, awarded the 2009 National Architecture Award by the Spanish Ministry of Housing for his overall career and since 2011 member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (International RIBA Felowship).The book reflects Carlos Ferrater professional practice, having proved his worth in many projects of enormous relevance and distinction.


BOOK OAB – 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.
