Nieto Sobejano Architectos, Madrid
The works of Nieto Sobejano Architectos are conceived independently and at different times, with every project oscillating between memory and invention, as Enrique Sobejano emphasized.
The firm’s most notable works include the Madinat al-Zahra Museum, the Moritzburg Museum, the San Telmo Museum, the Zaragoza Congress Centre, the Joanneum extension in Graz, and the Contemporary Art Centre in Córdoba. The architects have also won numerous awards, such as the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2010).
In his lecture, Enrique Sobejano portrayed the extraordinary design philosophy of Nieto Sobejano Architectos based on projects completed around the world, such as the Arvo Pärt Centre in Laulasmaa, Estonia, or the planned new construction of the Hotel Königshof on Munich’s Stachus square.
Enrique Sobejano founded Nieto Sobejano Architectos together with Fuensanta Nieto in 1985 in Madrid. He is a professor at the Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK) in Berlin, a permanent member of the Akademie der Künste Berlin (AdK) and a visiting critic and lecturer at various international universities worldwide.
