A face-to-face conference where we will have the opportunity to listen to the architect Xevi Bayona, who will talk about the studio’s career and its most relevant projects.

Bayona Studio is a workshop and studio in the city centre of Olot, where we use experimentation and testing as a method; criticism as tool for learning; emotions; the interpretation and respect of social; physical and cultural environment; enthusiasm and intense research as fuel. It accomplishes this while straddling architecture, urban planning, art, landscape, ephemeral installations and light sculptures; a mix of disciplines that feedback and complement each other.

Xevi Bayona studied from an early age at the School of Fine Arts in Olot as well as architecture in Barcelona and in Portugal, at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP). Architect by the Barcelona Technical School of Architecture (ETSAB) with the PFC Biblioteca-Ludoteca in Espinho, Portugal. Post Graduate Degree in Landscaping at ETSAB and MA in Theory and Practice of Architectural Design at ETSAB with the thesis “La Girona dels Carrers-Escala”. Since 2008, he is a professor at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Girona. Since 2018, he is also a professor at Elisava’s international MA in ephemeral architecture. Winner of several awards, including three FAD awards, several finalist and selected projects, winner of architectural awards and mentions from the Regions of Girona and winner of the Changing Tracks competition – a European project to create 3 installations, in Catalonia, England and Ireland. Since 2017 he collaborates and carries out projects together with Àlex Posada, MID Studio. Bayona has performed civil works such as the Rehabilitation of the Tortosa State Bridge over the Ebro River, the rehabilitation of the Sant Jaume de Llierca sports area or the Olot Fair, as well as housing architecture works. He has held conferences, workshops and made ephemeral interventions in several European cities.
