Javier Lázaro

I am Javier Lázaro Tirado, an architect graduated from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid (ETSAM). My Final Degree project was based on the traditional and territorial understanding of the Mouraria neighbourhood in Lisbon.

My Final Degree Project focused on the theme of emptiness, under the direction of Manuel de Prada and with the support of Juan Carlos Sancho, with whom I made a documentary report on the form and analysis of the territory, as well as the contrast between artifice and landscape.

Since 2019, I have collaborated with nationally renowned architectural firms such as Arturo Franco Estudio, Jesús Aparicio Estudio de Arquitectura, Alfaro Arquitectura and SEA Arquitectos. At the same time, I develop my professional activity mainly in small-scale projects, getting involved in the adaptation of rural dwellings and small housing reforms.

My architectural projects have received recognition, having been a finalist in the Curatorial competition of the Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism with the proposal “Vasto Territorio” (2023), and having obtained a Special Mention in the ideas competition “Comisariado Menos 35 COAM” (2022), as well as an Outstanding Proposal in the Dossier n.2 “ReUse the Roman Ruin: Piscina Mirabilis” (2020).

As a professional architectural photographer, my photographs have been published in various digital media, such as Divisare, Dwell or Arch Daily (2022). My most recent works have been included in the latest issue of COAM Magazine 384 “Pandemix” (2021).
