BIO:
Ramon Bosch and Bet Capdeferro are graduate architects from Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona - UPC-BarcelonaTECH since 2000 and 1999 respectively. Bet Capdeferro followed the courses of the Masters in Landscape Architecture from Fundació Politècnica de Catalunya between 1996 and 1998.

In 2003 they founded the office bosch.capdeferro arquitectures in their hometown of Girona. Their professional activity has progressed in parallel to teaching in Barcelona, Zurich, Girona and Ithaca, NY, supporting from the fields of theory and research the development of design and construction processes.

They conceive the project as a concave and inclusive experience, capable of harmoniously integrating through an open process all diverse agents and facts that configure it.
