Josep Llinās

Josep Llinàs (Castelló de la Plana, 1945) trained as an architect at Barcelona’s School of Architecture, the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB), and later taught at the same institution. The greater part of his architectural work is located in Barcelona and its metropolitan area, with highlights including buildings such as the Biblioteca Jaume Fuster library (2006), in Plaça de Lesseps ? which merited him his third FAD Prize and was also recognised with the Catalan Government’s National Prize for Architecture and the Public Space, the Fort Pienc cultural facilities block (2003), in the Eixample, and a residential block at Carrer del Carme 55 (1995), in the Raval district. He has also worked in Tarragona, where he took charge of the refurbishment of the Teatre Metropol (1995), designed by Josep Maria Jujol, an architect whose work Llinàs admires and knows very well. In the year 2012, Llinàs presided over the international jury of the European Prize for Urban Public Space in representation of the CCCB.
