Estanislao Pérez Pita, born on May 23 1943 in Madrid, obtained the title of Architect from the Technical University of Madrid in 1969, working during his first years of career with José Antonio Corrales in Madrid (1968-1969) and with Davies and Brody in New York (1970-1971). From 1973 until his death, he worked in Madrid in partnership with architect Jerónimo Junquera.
His work has been exhibited, among other places, at the Paris Biennale (1985-1986), at the Georges Pompidou, Bordeaux, Amsterdam, Milan and Chicago Center. His particular perception of architecture is reflected in a wide variety of buildings as diverse as offices, homes, remodelations, exhibition halls and sport arenas, being austerity and functionality the main feature of his buildings instead of any prominence or showmanship.
In the years 1977-1980 he directed the magazine Architecture of Madrid. Since 1986 he combined his professional work with teaching at the School of Architecture of Madrid and architecture critic in the newspaper El Pais, for which he worked between 1986 and 1988.
