Not only a complete monograph of Carme Pinós' architectural oeuvre, Carme Pinós: Architects traces the development of her practice over several decades via an in-depth investigation of the recurring themes and concerns that inform her work. Through studies of significant city projects and selected works, critical contributions from Peter Smithson, Daniela Colafranceschi, Rafael Moneo, Pedro Azura, Rafael Argullol, Francis Rambert, Juan Jose Lahuerta, Josep Quetglas, Magdelena Jaume and from Carme Pinós herself, come together to elucidate the motivations of one of the most compelling figures currently working in the contemporary architectural landscape. This publication journeys from Pinós early collaborations with Enric Miralles, characterised by an exploration of natural materials and forms that merge with their setting, to the evolution of her own emphatic works?a striking articulation of complex shapes and spaces that maintain a clear commitment to the quality of construction while perfectly integrating with the environment, whether natural or urban. Carme Pinós: Architects is a comprehensive overview of the atypical architectural expression of Carme Pinós' truly unique and intriguing practice.
