Professor Fabrizio Barrozzi is a co-founder of Barrozzi / Veiga Architects. He grew up in Roverto, Italy and studied architecture in Venice (Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia), Seville (Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Sevilla) and Paris (Ecole d’Architecture de Paris La Villette). He co-founded the practice together with Alberto Veiga in Barcelona in 2004.
Barrozzi Veiga are known as the designers of many notable cultural landmarks. Their most famous works include the headquarters of D.O. Ribera del Duero (La D.O. Ribera del Duero 2011), Auditorium Águilas (Auditorio y Palacio de Congresos de Águila, 2011), the Philharmonic Hall Szczecin (Filharmonia im. Mieczysława Karłowicza w Szczecinie 2014), and Music School Bruneck (Scuola di Musica di Brunico, 2018). Next year sees the completion of the Museum of Fine Arts Lausanne (Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts) and the Zürich Dance Academy (Tanzhaus Zürich)
“Barozzi/Veiga’s monumental yet sympathetic-seeming projects pique our interest to see and hear more about their work,” says Professor Jenni Reuter, curator of the discussion series.
Barrozzi / Veiga have received numerous notable architectural prizes over the years, most recently the RIBA Award for International Excellence 2018, which came in recognition of the Bündner Kunstmuseum 2016 in Chur, Switzerland. Their projects have featured prominently in architectural exhibitions and publications.
