Barozzi Veiga. Lausanne, Zurich, Bolzano


Since they won the 2015 Mies van der Rohe Award for the Mieczysław Karłowicz Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin, Barozzi Veiga – set up in Barcelona in 2004 by Fabrizio Barozzi (Rovereto, Italy, 1976) and Alberto Veiga (Santiago de Compostela, 1973) – has joined the club of Spanish practices enjoying an international reach. The three works featured here, all located abroad, present the evolution of a language marked by bold and serene geometries, manipulation of scale and light, and a purposeful desire to reconcile each building’s autonomy with the specificities of the context, in what the authors have coined ‘sentimental monumentality.’
