Bajet Giramé is an architecture studio founded in Barcelona in 2017 by Maria Giramé and Pau Bajet after collaborating on David Chipperfield Architects in London. The studio is a collaborative platform that develops architectural projects, urban prototypes, publications and research, with the aim of exploring and expanding the multiplicity of material, social and ecological relationships of emerging spatial practice together with a consolidated group of partners, collaborators and clients.

Currently, they are co-curators of the future International Congress of Architecture 2026 (UIA 2026 Barcelona) and directors of Quaderns d’Arquitectura i Urbanisme no. 274 (Spring 2024). Today, the studio is developing two collective social housing projects (83 social homes for seniors with senior cohousing of 15 units and public facilities for the Barcelona City Council, and 72 social homes for the Prat de Llobregat City Council); the transformation of a rural campsite in the Ebro Delta; urban planning for the municipality of Alcanar, as well as various reform and rehabilitation projects for domestic and productive spaces.

Manuel Julià JAAS

Julià Arquitectes Associats is a Barcelona architecture studio completely committed to developing socially valuable architecture. The spaces they design are comfortable, simple and permeable. Above all, they seek to foster civic engagement and create a strong sense of community.

They believe in the reversibility of their designs, which are rooted in place and always aware of history and context. They consider that their projects should contribute to the sustainable development of cities, which is why they focus on reprogramming and transforming the built environment. JAAS implements construction solutions based on tradition, but updated to meet contemporary needs, thus reducing energy consumption and the use of materials with a negative carbon footprint.
