b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos is an architecture and urban planning office founded in 1997 by Fermin Vazquez and Ana Bassat. The Studio operates globally from Spain and Brazil. Their work has been exhibited and published extensively and has received numerous prices and awards worldwide.
b720’s architecture addresses contemporaneity through rigorous research of social and technical implication of the discipline. The coherence of the firm’s work is based on a distinctive way of working that deliberately avoids the development of a particular style or formalistic approach. Each project emerges from the search for a specific solution, with clients and society as essential reference points. The response to the programme, context, budget and time constraints is necessarily unique.
They have recently built the Encants Market in Barcelona and the Spanish Pavilion in Milan Expo. Porto Alegre’s waterfront, Forma Itaim Tower in São Paulo and VP Hotel in Madrid are among their jobs under construction at the moment.
