Ensamble Studio


Ensamble Studio is a cross-functional team founded in 2000 and led by architects Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa. From their early works—SGAE Headquarters, Hemeroscopium House, and The Truffle in Spain—to their most recent—Ensamble Fabrica in Madrid and Ca’n Terra in Menorca, Spain—, every project makes space for experimentation aiming to advance their field. Currently, through their startup WoHo, they are invested in increasing the quality of architecture while making it more affordable by integrating offsite technologies. Their new research and fabrication facility in Madrid, Ensamble Fabrica, has been built to support this endeavor. Antón and Débora are committed to sharing ideas and cultivating synergies between professional and academic worlds through teaching, lecturing, and researching. Débora is Ventulett Chair in Architectural Design at Georgia Tech and Antón is a Professor at MIT, where they cofounded the POPlab—Prototypes of Prefabrication Laboratory—in 2012.
