Ignacio Urquiza Seoane. Ignacio Urquiza Arquitectos

The Ignacio Urquiza Arquitectos studio is made up of a team of architects and designers; They develop projects of different scales and typologies based on research, experimentation, and critical analysis. They employ three main elements in their design process: drawing, image, and text.

As architects, they prioritize drawing by hand. They transmit ideas, proposals, and solutions through drawings, which when interpreted by different people can materialize in architectural works. Their interest in drawing is dedicated and meticulous: with it, they seek to express the spatial relationships that they explore with each project and their relationship with the user.

Images are fundamental tools throughout their design process, they use the image as a reference and inspiration, as a means of exploring what they have investigated, and as a record of the development of their ideas and intentions.

Words are the archive of knowledge and the foundation of our ideas. The use of these elements shows his way of understanding and doing architecture.
