Benedetta Tagliabue | Architect
Benedetta Tagliabue is a renowned Italian architect established in Catalonia.
She was born in Milan, and lived and studied in Venice and New York. In 1989 she graduated from the "Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia" in Venice, Italy.
She began her collaboration with the catalan architect Enric Miralles in 1991, with whom she founded the studio Miralles Tagliabue EMBT. Nowadays, Benedetta is in charge of this prestigious architectural studio of international reputation, which is distinguished by the balance between fragmented and convulsed aesthetics and the respect for the tradition of the place. A concept that Miralles transmitted to Benedetta and that she will never cease to capture.
The studio Miralles Tagliabue EMBT has worked on numerous projects such as Diagonal Mar Park (1997-2002), the rehabilitation of Santa Caterina market in Barcelona (1996-2005) and the new office tower for Gas Natural (1999-2006). It has also taken on projects in other European countries, like the new Scottish Parliament (1998-2004), the School of Music in Hamburg (1997-2000) and the expansion and restoration of the City of Utrecht.
Benedetta has also been honored with prestigious awards, including the prize “Ciutat de Barcelona” in the international projection category for the Spain Pavilion of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.
