Ignacio Perez, Pablo Menéndez and Héctor Termenón

Ignacio Perez, Pablo Menéndez and Héctor Termenón from Spain

We are 3 spanish architects, we met each other working in the same architecture office in Berlin and we decided to carry out competitions on our own. We created Termenón.Pérez.Menéndez in 2018, after receiving the second prize in European Norway 14, and started developing the project together with the city hall of Alta.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where company/ individuals have been involved?

This competition, Iceland Volcano Museum, is our second competition together as a partnership. We are interested in the urban scale and lately we have been developing a housing project in Norway which involves city planning and public spaces. On the other hand, we are also interested in architecture as a means by itself. Sometimes architecture has the chance to present itself as an autonomous object and we feel comfortable in this kind of scenario.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture and its production is a constant effort of improving our surroundings on different scales. Therefore architects have the responsibility of making a better environment for everyday life, from the single unit to the whole metropolitan areas.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

It gives you the chance to develop new ideas.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

Participating in architecture competitions is always beneficial, it gives you the opportunity to improve your skills.
