Carlos Sobrini, 1925-2020


The Navarrese architect and professor Carlos Sobrini breathed his last on 9 December at 95 years of age. His protracted teaching career began in the Madrid School of Architecture – where his final year thesis had won him the 1952 national award – and continued in the Seville School and later in the newly created University of Navarre. A life devoted to education which he managed to combine with a professional trajectory that took off with flying colors – landing the National Award for Architecture in 1959, just seven years after graduating – and bequeathes to us notable works like the very place in Pamplona that he taught in until his retirement in the late 1990s, the UNAV’s architecture school building, which he designed with Rafael Echaide and Eugenio Aguinaga.
