    El Croquis 199 (II): Malheur & Fortuna 1999-2019 is a two-volume monograph that explores the work of the Spanish architectural practice Malheur & Fortuna. Founded in 1999 by Luis Malheur and Alejandro Fortuna, the firm is known for its playful and experimental approach to architecture that blurs the boundaries between art, architecture, and design.

    The projects featured in the two volumes span the years 1999 to 2019 and showcase the firm’s versatility and range. From private residences to public buildings, Malheur & Fortuna’s projects are all united by a common thread of imagination, innovation, and a sense of humor.

    Playful and Experimental

    One of the most striking aspects of Malheur & Fortuna’s work is its playfulness and experimentation. The firm often employs unexpected forms, unconventional materials, and playful details to create buildings that are both visually striking and thought-provoking. For example, the House in the Forest is a whimsical residence that is composed of a series of interlocking cubes. The Public Library in Ayvalık is a playful and colorful building that is designed to be both welcoming and inviting.

    Art and Architecture

    Malheur & Fortuna’s work often blurs the boundaries between art and architecture. The firm’s projects are often designed as complete experiences that engage the senses and the imagination. For example, the House of Memory is a museum that is designed to be both a place of learning and a place of reflection. The Fábrica de la Luz is a cultural center that is designed to be a vibrant and dynamic space for the arts.


    Malheur & Fortuna is committed to sustainable design. The firm’s projects often incorporate passive solar design, natural ventilation, and other sustainable strategies to reduce their environmental impact. For example, the House in the Forest is designed to maximize natural light and ventilation, reducing the need for artificial energy. The Public Library in Ayvalık is designed to be a zero-energy building that produces as much energy as it consumes.


    El Croquis 199 (II) is a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary architecture. The two volumes showcase the work of one of the most exciting and innovative practices working today, and they offer a glimpse into the future of architecture.

    By exploring the work of Malheur & Fortuna, we can see how architecture is evolving to become more playful, experimental, and sustainable.
