    El Croquis 115-116 (Part III) focuses on the influential Spanish architectural firm RCR Arquitectes, covering their prolific period from 1999 to 2005. This era saw Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, and Ramon Vilalta refine their unique approach, characterized by a deep engagement with landscape and materiality.

    Landscape and Materiality:

    The book delves into RCR Arquitectes’ signature design strategy, where they create architecture that is deeply rooted in its surrounding landscape. They often use natural materials, such as wood, stone, and clay, to create buildings that blend seamlessly into their environment. This results in an architecture that is both beautiful and functional, in harmony with its surroundings.

    Key Projects:

    • Casa Ugalde, Olot, Spain (2002): This private residence exemplifies RCR Arquitectes’ mastery of integrating architecture into the landscape. The building is nestled into a hillside, its undulating form echoing the contours of the land. The use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, further enhances the building’s integration into its surroundings.
    • Museo Soulages, Rodez, France (2014): This museum showcases RCR Arquitectes’ ability to handle large-scale projects with sensitivity. The building is composed of a series of interconnected volumes that are carved into the landscape. The use of natural materials, such as stone and wood, further enhances the building’s integration into its surroundings.
    • Parc de l’Estació, Olot, Spain (2009): This public park exemplifies RCR Arquitectes’ commitment to public space. The park is designed to be a place for people to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, creates a welcoming and inviting environment.

    Beyond Landscape and Materiality:

    El Croquis 115-116 (Part III) goes beyond showcasing RCR Arquitectes’ beautiful and evocative architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of their work, exploring their engagement with contemporary construction techniques, sustainability, and the relationship between architecture and the public realm. Essays by renowned critics and theorists provide insightful analyses of the firm’s approach, making the book a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in cutting-edge architectural thought.

    A Legacy of Landscape and Materiality:

    RCR Arquitectes’ work continues to inspire architects and artists worldwide. Their ability to create architecture that is both beautiful and functional, in harmony with its surroundings, has enriched the architectural landscape and challenged traditional notions of how buildings can be both sustainable and evocative. El Croquis 115-116 (Part III) serves as a timeless testament to their legacy and a valuable resource for understanding the ever-evolving conversation between landscape and materiality in architecture.
