Ginés Garrido, co-founder of the architecture office Burgos & Garrido Arquitectos Asociados, will deliver a lecture titled Skating Landscapes.

Founded in 2002, BGAA has an open structure and frequently collaborates with other architects in Spain and abroad. The practice has experience in national and international housing projects, cultural and administrative facilities, and urban design. This approach allows the office to consider and develop projects with pragmatism and effectiveness.

BGAA’s projects have been published nationally and internationally, and their work has appeared in both temporary and touring exhibitions. BGAA has been recognized with fifty prizes in architecture competitions, more than twenty of which are first prizes. Notable accolades include the XII Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design, which BGAA earned in 2015 for its work on the Madrid Rio project. This award is granted to urban design projects built in the last ten years that stand out for their excellent design and ability to transform cities through carefully planned interventions comprising responsible social strategies that improve the public realm and the citizens’ quality of life.

A full professor at the Department of Architectural Projects [ETSAM]. UP Madrid since 2007, Garrido is in demand as a speaker and educator. He has served as a lecturer and visiting scholar at the Graduate School of Architecture, Harvard University; Escola Técnica Superior d’Arquitectura UPC, Barcelona; Akademie der Bildenden Küste, Wien; and Ecole d’Architecture Athenaeum EAAL, Lausanne; among other higher-learning institutions.
