A face-to-face conference where we will have the opportunity to listen to the architect Xevi Bayona, who will talk to us about the studio's trajectory and its most relevant projects.
Bayona Studio is a workshop and studio in the center of the city of Olot, where we work with experimentation and essay as a method, criticism as learning, emotions as a tool, the interpretation and respect of social, physical and cultural environment, enthusiasm and intense research as fuel. All straddling architecture, urban planning, art, landscape, ephemeral installations and light sculptures, a mix of disciplines that feed back and complement each other.
