Big A - Vora
Place: Museum of Architecture
Vora is an architectural studio, operating in Barcelona since 2000. It is headed by Pere Riba and Toni Buil - graduates of ESTAB (Escola Tecnica Superior d'Arquitectura de Barcelona) in 2000.
Until 2010 a Branch in Lisbon was co-managed by Jordi Fornells.
We are engaged in construction projects and urban design of various types and scale. Our projects are award-winning and published in architectural journals around the world.
We combine professional work with teaching, curator’s and cultural activities.
