What do architects do when they design?
Why do things look the way they do?

Mercedes Miras studied architecture at the Seville School of Architecture (ETSAS). In 2000 she established her own architectural practice in Almeria, Spain. Her work has mainly involved the restoration and preservation of historical buildings, including the renovation of a Renaissance historical building to house the Andalusian Photography Museum and the restoration of a Nasrid Tower in Huercal-Overa. She has also worked for the Andalusian Regional Government on social regeneration projects in deprived areas. Luis Castillo studied architecture at the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM) and the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA). In 2000 he established his own office in Almeria, Spain having worked in several practices in Spain and Holland. He has lectured widely in Spain on his work.
