The studio was founded in 2005 by Emilio Marin. 2010 Juan Carlos Lopez entered as a partner. It specializes in various fields of contemporary architecture and has developed several projects for private clients as well as public. Emilio Marin is also founder of the independent editorial Public Library, which produces, designs and publishes its own material as well as others.
The office was recently selected by ICON magazine in a list of 20 architects in the world who are “building the future”.
The office follows an accurate line –not always straight, yet very precise- with unique and carefully designed projects, all of which very diverse amongst each other. They all compose a heterogeneous collection of work.
The last concluded project was for Archizines (a showcase of new architecture fanzines, journals and magazines from around the world curated by Elias Redstone in collaboration with the Architectural Association), designing and developing the exhibition in Santiago.
The office has now expanded its field of action and hopefully will build a Desert Research Center for a wind energy company at Northern Chile.
We are also interested in research, which we consider as a fundamental component of our design process and derive as a natural result of our concluded projects, as well as gives continuity to them. Most recently we have been investigating and implementing frugal architecture into our practice.
