Ramon Bosch and Bet Capdeferro, the spring 2022 Ruth & Norman Moore Visiting Professors of Architecture, will deliver a public lecture about their work. The event is free, but registration is required.
Bosch and Capdeferro are architecture graduates of Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona - UPC-BarcelonaTECH in 2000 and 1999, respectively. In 2003 they founded bosch.capdeferro arquitectura in their hometown of Girona, where they work on projects of different scales and typologies, focusing on the relationship between humankind and environment.
Their professional activity has always interplayed with their teaching experience at ETSAB – UPC BarcelonaTech, ETH – Zürich, EPS – Universitat de Girona, and Cornell University in New York, supporting the development of design and construction processes from the fields of theory and research. They conceive the project as a concave and inclusive experience, capable of harmoniously integrating the diversity of agents and facts that configure it through an open process.
