The Spanish architect, Elisa Valero Ramos, will be one of the guests of Cersaie 2017’s cultural program “Building, Dwelling, Thinking”, which will be held in Bologna on Thursday 28th September at 10:30 at the Gallery of Architecture during the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings.
Specialised in Bioclimatic and energy saving design, Elisa started her career in Mexico with the restoration of Felix Candela’s work, Los Manantiales, and in 1997, she opened her studio in front of L'Alhambra in Granada. Her work has always been related to the world of art, also due to the strong influence of her mother, a painter.
At El Serrallo, a kindergarten in Granada, Elisa Valero Ramos ventured with a theme that is particularly dear to her, architecture dedicated to children. Here, she expressed her design principles, including the definition of space through white walls with a high horizontal trend.
Another very significant project is the Church of Santa Josefina Bakhita in Motril, in which the architect has developed a wise and appropriate use of light in a design plan always attentive to the valorisation of resources and materials available.
Currently, Elisa Valero Ramos is Professor of Architectural Design at the High Technical School of Architecture of Granada and Visiting Professor at the Technical University of Berlin Institute für Architektur; she also teaches at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Rome Tre, at the Facultad de Arquitectura de l'UNAM México, at the School of Architecture at the BTU Cottbus and is a Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture in Copenhagen and at the Escola da Cidade in Sao Paulo.
She also holds lessons at the London South Bank University and Faculty of Architecture in Mantua, as well as for the Master in Restoration and Conservation of the Polytechnic Heritage of the University of Valencia.
Finally, Elisa was coordinator of Andalusia's team for the construction of the Patio 2.12 solar home, where eighteen teams from twelve countries competed in the design and development of the world's most efficient solar energy home, for which she was awarded first prize for Communication and Social Awareness, first prize for Energy Efficiency, first prize for Energy Balance and first prize for the publicly-favoured project.
To learn more about her work and get a glimpse of her future projects, do not miss out on this meeting with her in Bologna.
