Antonio Vélez

Apartment building, Madrid, Spain, 1982

A somewhat strange apartment building for a housing collective of young professionals.  Each tenant decided the size and position of their windows individually and along with the two tones of brickwork this lends the facade a playful and arbitrary character. The building sits on ‘pilotis’ and the large television aerial is a nod to pop culture.

Social Science Research Centre, Berlin, Germany, 1998

A cluster of buildings which refer to historical architectural types form an irregular courtyard.  The facades which are consistent across the buildings are at once playful and serious.   Regular windows with deep orthogonal architraves are contrasted with bold horizontal bands of colour.
