Episode #88: Carme Pinos

28 February 2020

Spirit of Generosity: Designing for the People

Carme Pinós in Conversation with Maru Benavides

In this podcast episode, architect Carme Pinós speaks with MARCH student Maru Benavides. Through their bilingual conversation, Pinós shares with us her love of simplicity and natural materials. She gives us a glimpse into her design philosophy that prioritizes human relations, closely considers context, and is spatially and programmatically generous toward the people. She also talks about how she works with the current market-driven building culture as a contemporary architect.

Pinós is the founder of Barcelona-based Estudio Carme Pinós. Her sharp approach to design, anchored by a constant focus on experimentation and research, has made her work garner worldwide recognition. This recording was conducted before Carme Pinós’ lecture at the school on February 10, 2020.

This podcast was produced and edited by Sritoma Bhattacharjee and Yulin Peng.
