ARRIOLA FIOL Arquitectes was founded in 1987 with the principal objectives of exploring the interrelationship between Architecture and Urbanism with the Design of Public Spaces. The ambition was that of closing the traditional gap between these disciplines. This is achieved by means of designing Urbanism based on specific projects and planning Architecture in the public realm. Projects are seen as opportunities to provide creative solutions which fully address both the users needs and their aspirations. The firm success is a result of continual care and attention to all facets of the project, from the clear understanding of the clients objectives to ensuring of their efficient realization on site.

Successful international endeavours by the office have been executed with the same level of quality control through its proven network of engineers, artists, and its multi-lingual literate office team.
