Carme Pinós. An architecture of overlay

The work of Catalan architect Carme Pinos is known for a close relationship with its immediate environment. Her sculptural forms--sinuous lines and walls, teetering plane, inviting arches and containers--are derived from a poetic use of materials and from the history and patterns of human presence on the site. Pinos´s architecture of overlay is evident in her design process; her unique models and drawings are complex compositions that reinforce the multifaceted quality of her design. This monograph, the first comprehensive English-language publication of the architect´s work, presents extensive visual documentation of twenty-five built and unbuilt works from 1991, the year she founded her own firm, to the present. Pinos is particularly noted for her large-scale architecture-landscape projects, including her most significant current project, the JVC Cultural & Business Center fair area, part of a major project in Guadalajara, Mexico. Among other designs are the pedestrian bridge, Petrer, Alicante; Dunar Park, Matalascanas, Huelva; the Juan Aparicio and Punta Prima waterfonts, Torrevieja, Alicante; and landscape improvements and recreational center, Caldas de Reis, Galicia. Pinos also specializes in sports facilities and schools: sports center and swimming pool, Mont-Sartoux, Cote d´Azur; soccer stadium, Seville; and high school, Mollerusa, Lerida.
