Ribas & Ribas, based in Barcelona, has worked in Architecture for more than fifty years. It's possible to follow the evolution of the studio in a period of great global transformations, in the fields of architecture, urbanism and teaching. The studio Ribas & Ribas Architects was founded in Barcelona in 1957 by José Ribas Gonzalez together with two more partners, establishing collaborations with renowned architects as Josep Lluís Sert among others. Since its inception, it has adopted its work to a precise methodology that has given it extensive expertise in all sorts of buildings. In 1987, with the incorporation of José Ribas to the study, the initial society dissolves and starts a new stage. In 1994, Mrs. Inma Ribas starts to work in the studio, being responsible for projects during its execution phase and working closely to her father and her brother. Later, in 2010, Adriana Ribas joined the company, representing the third generation of architects in the studio, adding value to the experience obtained during more than 50 years. They have specialists in different fields of architecture and urbanism and are currently working on large projects and collaborating, among others, with Ateliers Jean Nouvel. Ribas & Ribas has developed several projects such as the Columbus tower in Barcelona, the Church of Baqueira - Beret, the New IESE's Business School in Barcelona, the Hotel Renaissance Barcelona Fira and the Life Marina condominium in Ibiza in association with Jean Nouvel, the Ronda de Dalt Funeral Parlour in Barcelona...
