Javier Ferrándiz

A Spanish architect who has completed a wide range of architectural projects in Catalonia while also teaching and disseminating design.

Ferrándiz graduated in architecture from the ETSAB (School of Architecture of Barcelona.) In 1998, he became a professor at the Projects Chair Department. He also works as a consultant architect of the UPC on urban development for the city of l'Hospitalet (Barcelona).

Some of his architectural projects are: the partial building of the area of Roc-Blanc in Terrassa, consisting of 1200 apartments (1988); the Alcanar high school (1992); the improvement of a kindergarten in Barcelona (nominated to the FAD awards in 1992); the La Farga shopping center in l'Hospitalet (1996); the Youth Hostel in Empúries (Girona, 2000); a sports center in Ordal (Barcelona, 2001); the Primary health care center in Ribes de Fresser (Girona, 2001); and the project for the Centro de Residuos of Aena at the Barcelona airport (2002).

"Designing, imagining, drawing, reducing, making bigger, changing one's mind iron, glass, wood, stone a pan-head screw making a fresh start running away from the object that has trapped us: the thrill of inventing". This is, in Ferrándiz's words, the process that has led him to design the Rambla wastebasket, edited in 1993 by Santa & Cole, and a sign for camping areas for the Government de Catalunya.

Ferrándiz has also promoted and written articles on architecture and urban design in many Spanish publications.
