Arnau Boix i Pla

Inclusive design for the built environment

I am an architect, a designer, with the strong belief that the result of my job needs to improve people's quality of life. My focus is on the relation between human-beings and the built environment. On how people with different abilities sense cities and architecture.

I am an enthusiast of collaborative design for interior architecture and for the public realm, since human interaction drives environment perception in both cases. I find working in transdisciplinary teams essential to deal with complexity on urban and architectural projects. Everybody involved on a process contribute in a greater or lesser extent to the result of a spatial transformation, that's why the qualities that I claim are respect and closeness, organization and determination, and emotional involvement with common purposes.

I am engaged with estel* initiative (social strategies for the public realm), a widely inclusive innovative project on urban analysis focused on people activity and its involvement on decision-making. Further information on www.plaestel.org
