Javier Lázaro

Architect graduated from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid (ETSAM) whose final project was based on the traditional and territorial understanding of the Mouraria neighbourhood in Lisbon.

He studied mainly in Madrid and was awarded a scholarship in Poland (Poznàn University of Technology) through an Erasmus+ scholarship and in La Coruña (Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de La Coruña) through the SICUE programme.

He currently works as an architect and professional architectural photographer between Madrid and La Coruña.

His academic work for his Final Degree Project was developed around the void, directed by Manuel de Prada and with the support of Juan Carlos Sancho, with whom he made a documentary report on the form and analysis of the territory and the confrontation between artifice and landscape.

Since 2019 he has collaborated with important national architectural firms such as Arturo Franco Estudio, Jesús Aparicio Estudio de Arquitectura, Alfaro Arquitectura and SEA Arquitectos. At the same time, he develops his professional practice based mainly on small-scale projects, moving between the adaptation of rural dwellings and small home refurbishments.

As a professional, his architectural projects have been recognised, obtaining in the last few years Finalist in the curatorial competition of the Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism with the proposal “Vasto Territorio”. (2023), Special Mention in the ideas competition “Comisariado Menos 35 COAM”. (2022) and Proposal highlighted in the Dossier n.2 “ReUse the Roman Ruin: Piscina Mirabilis”. (2020).

Como fotógrafo profesional de arquitectura sus fotografías han sido publicadas en numerosos medios digitales como Divisare, Dwell o Arch Daily (2022). His most recent works have been published in the latest issue of the Magazine COAM 384 “Pandemix” (2021).
