EMBT is an international acknowledged architecture studio formed by Benedetta Tagliabue and Enric Miralles in 1994. The studio has experience in public spaces and buildings in both Europe and China working for State and Local Governments as well as Corporate and private clients.
EMBT’s mature approach to architecture, interior design, facility planning includes experience with educational, commercial, industrial and residential buildings, restoration of buildings as well as special purpose landscape architecture. Each project evolves from the speciﬁc client requirements and innovation emerges through the design process. This approach is combined with strong technical and management skills to provide cost effective and personal service.
The studio maintains a highly personal level of service throughout the design process and offer strong technical and structural solutions through close collaboration with engineering ofﬁces.
The majority of the EMBT projects are commissioned by public clients with special emphasis on urban space and the coherence between the built environment and the public space. Each project brings with it a new client and special cost constraints. To achieve the desired solution, EMBT believe that the design process must be a collaborative effort between the client and the designer.
EMBT ensures that clients take an active role in deﬁning their needs, bringing client and solution together, and is backed by a support team with a capability of responding rapidly to projects demands. The studio put great emphasis on each individual projects context, history and culture and aims to enhance these aspects through their unique design process.
