Ensamble Studio - Architecture of the Earth
Ensamble Studio was founded in 2000 and is led by architects Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa. Their practice is rooted in a fascination with the fact that architecture comes from the Earth. For thousands of years, with the extraction of metals, minerals, fibres, and soil, the process was relatively simple. Today’s emerging technologies are changing this. In this monograph, the studio revisits the remains of megalithic constructions spread across the Galician landscape and speculates on what will become of modern buildings and cities in the future. It examines how they have applied their work in both urban and wild contexts, combining natural and human-made environments.
