Pere Buil, Toni Riba. VORA

vora is an architecture studio in operation in Barcelona since 2000. It is headed by Pere Buil and Toni Riba, both graduates from ETSAB in 2000. They work in building and urban design, at different scales and typologies, with some forays into industrial design. They combine professional activity with teaching, curating, and cultural activities.

His approach to the design and construction process is based on the abstract and the material. They are interested in reduction and materiality in response to the challenges of architecture. Also because of the traces, traces, and absences as a remnant of memory and its impact on collective identities.

His work has received multiple awards, including the Frame 2020, Surface Design 2020, 2AA 2018, Archmarathon 2014, Ciutat de Barcelona 2013, AJAC 2012, Arquitectura + 2011, and Bonaplata 2007 awards, and has been a finalist or selected in several editions of the FAD, ENOR, Bigmat awards, Spanish Architecture Biennial (BEAU), European Landscape Biennial, Mies Van der Rohe and Arquia / Próxima Awards, among others. It was also exhibited at the Venice Biennale in the Catalan and Spanish pavilions in the 2014 and 2016 editions. In May 2018 they inaugurated their first monographic exhibition “Shared Identities” at the Kolektiv Gallery in Belgrade.

His works with the greatest recognition are: Vallirana 47 (comprehensive reform of a small residential building), the Can Rosés Temporary School, the Ramon y Mar Pavilion (a small domestic extension pavilion), the surroundings of the Born Market, the Juan apartment ( reform of a house) and the Can Ricart Sports Center in El Raval, all in Barcelona; the design of the Nantes chair, a Medical Clinic in Paüls, Rambla Sant Francesc in Vilafranca and the operations yard of the Bank of Spain in Madrid.
