Alejandro Muiño

Alejandro Muiño (b. 1982) is an architect (ETSAV) and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP. Muiño, together with Mireia Luzárraga, founded TAKK in 2010, an architecture and design studio based in Barcelona. Their projects investigate how architecture can catalyze the development of more democratic lives through the incorporation of feminist thought, ecology, and politics into its practice.

Their work has received recognition such as the COAM award, the “Temps de les Arts” award, and the FAD award.

Their work takes place in both the public and private spheres. TAKK’s clients include FRAC-Centre Val de Loire and IVAM (Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno), Barcelona City Council, FAD (Foment de les Arts i el Disseny), Vitra, Swatch, Hermès, FITUR (Feria de Turismo), or CA2M (Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo).

Their reference art and design galleries for his furniture work are Side Gallery Barcelona and Camp Design Milan.

TAKK’s work belongs to the permanent collection of the FRAC-Centre Val de Loire and has been exhibited at the Oslo Triennale, and the Venice, San Sebastián, Tallinn, Maia, and Rabat Biennales, among others. Likewise, TAKK has participated in exhibitions at Matadero-Madrid, Center d'Arts Santa Mónica, CCCB (Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona), MAK Vienna, TCDC Bangkok, or Alcova Milano.

TAKK has participated as a professor and lecturer in institutions such as the University of Alicante, ETSAM, IED (Istituto Europeo di Design), ELISAVA, RMIT, Floating University Berlin, or ILEK Stuttgart.

TAKK’s projects have been published in some of the most important architecture magazines such as Arquitectura Viva, Plot, Domus, Abittare, l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui, and in publications such as El País, El Mundo, Diari Ara, or Architectural Digest.
