Created in 2004, GRND82 is an open platform for young international professionals practicing in distinguished architecture and interior design studios throughout Barcelona.
We approach all of our projects –large or small, public or private – with the same aim: to provide contemporary solutions anchored in social, economic, and cultural context provided through research and constant dialogue with our clients, collaborators, contractors, and users.
We enjoy working under a tight budget or in constricted circumstances because it provides us with an opportunity to research new ideas in program, materials, and construction systems to adapt them to new social, economic, and environmental realities. This research is reinforced continually through the studio´s participation in various competitions and our member´s teaching work in schools of architecture and design: ETSAV, ELISAVA, and University of Illinois at Chicago, among others.
The work of our team has been recognized in various awards and exhibitions, both international and local, including the AR+D/RIBA honorable mention for emerging architects, nominations for the 2011 Mies Architecture Award, and the 2010 FAD award. Our projects have been published in magazines such as DOMUS, Architectural Review, and ON Diseño.
