Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, founded by Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano in Madrid in 1984 and which since 2004 has had a branch office in Berlin, sets itself apart by virtue of an aesthetic of reduced yet powerful forms and materials. The architects, who are involved in projects throughout the world, cultivate a building style that typically takes the roof as the point of departure for planning and design, which becomes palpable in particular in their public buildings, museums, concert halls, and convention centers. Besides commercial buildings, the office also draws up plans for private homes as well as for interventions in historical building stock. The late medieval Moritzburg Castle in Halle, for example, which houses the Municipal Museum of Art and Applied Arts, received a new roof, extending the range of its use in a spectacular way. The publication presents the diversity of the projects on the basis of terms such as “landscapes,” “roofscapes,” “memory and intervention,” “combinatorial spaces,” “material,” and “light.”
