Archives is a magazine developed for a paper format; it seeks to fill a gap in the sphere of architecture and other areas to which our particular view of the world relates. It was conceived as an abject that one would want to read employing both eyes and hands, and with the idea of becoming an archive that orders and clarifies the diverse ways of working and the projects of a series of architects.


Archives presents monographic issues dedicated to architects with built work that can be visited and photographed, so as to offer a real look at their architecture. A continuous look through the eyes of the same photographer, Juan Rodriguez, with the idea of establishing a relationship between all that may be shown in the different issues of the magazine. This first issue shows the work of Flores & Prats.

Ricardo Flores and Eva Prats founded their architecture firm in Barcelona in 1998. Their studio, which occupies a former residence, is a workshop where the practical work of design merges with academics, friends, and colleagues; a place that itself is an accumulation of projects and of the realities that have passed through it over the years. This book revisits nine key projects in the duo’s internationally acclaimed oeuvre, including Liquid Light (Venice, 2018), Mills Museum (Palma de Mallorca, 2016), Building 111 (Barcelona, 2011), and Yutes Warehouse (Barcelona, 2005), plus collected images, models, and a conversation with Antoni Miralda.
