Mateo&rsquo;s architecture is characterized by the inheritance of modernity, which is interested in the pursuit of light, an intense dialogue with the context, and the connection between the idea and the material. His projects are reflective and strategic; they speak about space while taking care of the relation between the mineral and the vegetable.</p> <p><br>Scale models, photographs, videos, collage and sketches make it possible to apprehend the complexity of his creative and constructive process. We find, for example, historical materials of emblematic projects such as the urbanization of the medieval town of Ullastret, mockups that reflect the development of a constructive concept, as is t...</p> EID MUBARAK....

The 189,500 square-foot school was built a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, and just a few hundred yards from a tidal marsh. The design solution included raising the entire building above the flood plain, utilizing materials reclaimed from the demolition of the old high school to provide structural support. </p> <p>Sustainable design was a leading priority for the Town and its state funding partner, the <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Massachusetts School Building Authority</a>, which pledged additional funding for the school&rsquo;s construction if the project achieved a LEED Silver certification or higher. &nbsp; </p> <p>&nbsp;&ldquo;We&rsquo;re very excited to have achieved LEED Gold certification...</p> KAAN Architecten presents the new buildings of Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Brazil: two campuses, one architectural identity KAAN Architecten 2018-06-12T05:37:35-04:00 >2018-06-12T05:37:35-04:00 <p><b>A year after the official launch of KAAN Architecten&rsquo;s second outpost in S&atilde;o Paulo (Brazil), the Dutch firm completes two new buildings, which will house the new campuses of the Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in S&atilde;o Jos&eacute; dos Campos and Piracicaba, in the inland of S&atilde;o Paulo State.
