Jaume Mayor with Irene Pérez forms TEd’A arquitectes, a tiny practice based in Mallorca, Spain.
TEd’A arquitectes is a workshop and an studio. TEd’A arquitectes try to move forward while looking back, without losing sight of the past and tradition. They strive to improve on tradition, our undeniable heritage. They defend the regional identities in front of the globalizing uniformism. They prefer evolution to revolution.
They have been teaching at the ETSA Vallés (Barcelona), at the IE School (Madrid) and at the ETSA La Salle (Barcelona). They have been invited as juries in different international schools, such as the Cornell University in Ithaca (New York) or the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio (Switzerland).
TEd’A arquitectes has received several awards, among with stand out: shortlisted for the FAD awards 2011 and 2013, First Prize in the Mallorca Architectural awards 2011-2013, First Prize in the AJAC awards for the best built work, and also First Prize for the best non-built project. In 2014 they won the First Prize for an international competition for building a school in Orsonnens, Switzerland. Recently they have been selected as one of the finalists in the FAD awards 2016.
