Eva Prats graduated from the School of Architecture of Barcelona (U.P.C.), in 1992 and obtained her Doctorate Cum Laude from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology RMIT, in 2019.
Establishes Flores & Prats in 1998 with partner Ricardo Flores, an architecture studio that combines design and constructive practice with an intense academic activity. After a long experience at Enric Miralles’ office, they developed a career where research is always linked to the responsibility to make and build, giving importance to the possibilities of open interpretations and critical views that the built work reveals as part of this research process.
Their projects, most of which are the result of open competitions, have investigated in fields such as rehabilitation and reuse of abandoned or ruined constructions, social housing and its capacity to build community, or urban public spaces with neighbors’ participation. The studio has also developed portable archives of projects, has experimented with the use of film to document architecture, and with menus of edible architecture such as those developed for the exhibitions of their work in Barcelona and Copenhagen.
