We had the chance to interview Catalonian architect at the Vogadors: Architectural Rowers exhibit at the 13th Venice Biennale.

Jordi Badia is the principal of BAAS, the Spanish practice founded in 1994 with a strong background in public buildings. Remarkable examples of this office are the Tanatorio de León and the Can Framis Museum.

Jordi graduated from the ETSAB (Barcelona School of Architecture)  in 1989, where he is has been an associate lecturer since 2011. He is also a Professor at the Architectural Projects Department of the Escuela técnica superior de arquitectura at UIC.

 Jordi is commited with the new generations, supporting young architects at HIC, and also reflected on his curator role of Vogadors, also discussed on this interview.
