About Ferrer ArquitectosVisit Website
It has been more than 18 years since the creation of FERRER ARQUITECTOS. Its founder, José Ángel Ferrer (1966), graduated from the University of Sevilla School of Architecture in 1993. Having graduated an architect, he opened a studio in Almería and Madrid and recently in London.
His interest and dedication to architecture are manifested in the form of numerous articles he has had published in the press and magazines; as well in his participacion as a professor and speaker in courses, university master´s programmes and conferences. José Ángel Ferrer also belongs to several important associations and foundations for the promotion of architecture, in which he has even held office; as was the case of his tenure as Secretary for the Architects Association of Almería. Presently, he is finishing his doctorate´s thesis on the museums of Rafael Moneo.
Standing out among Ferrer´s most recent works are: the Sports Hall for the XXV Mediterranean Games in 2005, which held the rhythmic gymnastics and volleyball competitions during those games; the buildings for Andalusian Radio and Television (RTVA) in the cities of Almería, Granada and Cádiz; the restoration of “the largest Spanish Civil War Shelters”; secondary school buildings; social centres and, most recently of all, the restoration of an important part of Almería´s cultural heritage – the mineral pier, or so-called “Cable Inglés”. All of the aforementioned projects were first prize winners in competitions. Various national and international magazines such as ARV, PH, Pasajes de Arquitectura, Catálogos de Arquitectura, INDE, Periódico de Arquitectura, Metamorphose and the Portuguese Arquitectura Ibérica have shown interest in his projects and have published some of his works. Furthermore, José Ángel Ferrer has received numerous prizes and mentions; and recently, he was selected for the 2007 FAD Awards for Architecture and Interior Design for the Moisés Ruiz Sports Hall.
His great concern for matters dealing with quality and the environment led him to direct the implementation of the quality systems ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 at FERRER ARQUITECTOS, which makes this architecture studio the only one in Andalusia certified by AENOR for both systems.
