WhATA interviews the Colombian architect Alejandro Piñol

Villanueva Public Library

Alejandro Piñol is a young architect from Colombia. He designed Villanueva Public Library, together with Carlos Meza, German Ramirez and Miguel Torres.

How comes that a Bulgarian architectural blog interviews a Colombian architect, living in Madrid?

Well, we stumbled upon Villanueva in Archdaily and featured it in a post about stone facades in Bulgarian. We liked the gabions very much and also the frank, cheap and real sustainability of the building situated in a poor, conflict-striken region.

Alejandro, in his turn, stumbled upon our blog and not knowing a word in Bulgarian asked us to translate the post for him. We did so (here is the post in English).

It was a wonderful chance for an interview and we, enthusiastic as we are, jumped over it. Our second chat-interview (first one was with Bjarke Ingles from BIG)

Alejandro turned out to be our kind of guy — wears Camper, believes in the social role of architecture and likes sustainability. It was a fun Friday-evening interview. Thanks, Alejandro!
