Studio Visit feature on Archinect

Miralles Tagliabue EMBT's studio is known most notably for Santa Caterina Market in Barcelona and The Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, the latter of which won the Stirling Prize in 2005. Tucked down a cobbled street a stones throw for Las Rambles, the studio was a homage to the old and new, filled to the brim with drawings, models and ideas.

Have you always been at this studio?

No, but I would like to spend more time in the studio. Work travels and meetings prevents me to do it.

Favorite part of the studio?

The marquetry.

Miralles Tagliabue‘s chair in her office.
By the looks of it, a rather good place
to pause and contemplate.

The office regularly collaborates
with local furniture and lighting
designers. Some macketts of
previous designs can be seen here.

Our philosophy reflects the belief of changing
the environment by observing and respecting
the site, its history and culture.
