Francisco Mangado – Mangado & Asociados

Mangado & Associates is an office of architecture lead by Francisco Mangado where the projects and works are developed mostly by architects organized into small groups of five or six professionals. The principal work is based on public buildings that cover a wide range of programs, such as cultural, sports and working spaces. Since the 90’s, Mangado architect’s has an active presence in national and international competitions where the development and reflection of not only isolated buildings, but at the same time urban ideas, are also constantly present. Categories such as space, material, urban context, topography and tectonics are the key tools for Francisco Mangado and his team in order to understand the process of architecture and its responses for the contemporary users. The integration between the design phases and the on-going works under construction are always feeding new perspectives to the team and offering new tools for theory and practice.
