Architecture studio focused on the construction of spatial narrations in our surroundings, which thereby improve people’s lives and the quality of those spaces. These are stories about places, cultures and techniques.

Sensuality, respect for the site, pragmatic design, optimization of resources, open forms and permeability – all of these values are developed within our work through a plan carried out from reality, the poetics of things, the search for potentials, systems and new languages.


 Jorge Vidal is an architect graduated by the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona in 2005. He studied at the Academy of Architecture Mendrisio in 2004, in Peter Zumthor Atelier and Valerio Olgiati Atelier. Furthermore, in 2003 he studied in Greece with Ellia Zenghelis thanks to a scholarship awarded to him by the Mies Van der Rohe Foundation. Thanks to a master’s degree in Projects he is now preparing his PhD at ETSAB.

Since 2008 he is a professor of Studio Projects at ETSAB and was the director of a series of lectures known as Foros ESARQ, at the Universidad Internacional de Cataluña from 2010 until 2016. He has taught as guest speaker in many schools of architecture. In addition to his academic commitments, he lectures extensively all over Spain and also abroad. He writes regularly about architecture.

From 2008 until 2015 Jorge Vidal worked together with Victor Rahola under Rahola Vidal Arquitectes. In 2015 Jorge Vidal stablished his current architecture studio.
