Carme Ribas

Architect, President of the Jury of the European Prize for Urban Public Space 2014.

(Barcelona, 1956) Architect from the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB-UPC), from which she also holds a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture, and where she teaches Landscaping and Architectural Project. Her professional career, characterized a clear sensitivity towards the urban condition, began at the Urban Projects Service of the Barcelona City Council (1980 – 1987), as a member of which she took part in the democratisation of the public spaces of the city. Since 1985, the studio she shares with Pere Joan Ravetllat has played a significant role in the development of projects ranging from social housing, to public facilities, through to improvement of urban spaces, always remaining true to their view that architecture should serve the city and society. Notable examples of her work  are the recovery of the riverbed in the Vallparadís Gully (Terrassa, 2001) and the remodelling of Passeig de Garcia Fària (Barcelona, 2004), both of which have been published in the digital archive of the European Prize for Urban Public Space.
