Josep Lluis MateoJosep Lluís Mateo (born 1949 in Barcelona) is architect since 1974 and PhD (cum laude) since 1994 at the UPC-Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. He was Professor of Architecture and Projects at the ETH-Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (Swiss Federal Polytechnic).
Mateo's practice is based in Barcelona, and he is currently involved in a number of local and international projects such as a Complex of 100 housing units in Toulouse-Blagnac (France), the remodelling of El Ninot marketplace in Barcelona,the remodelling of the urban front of the river Adour in Bayonne (France), the master plan for the Pôle Multimodal Nice-Aéroport quartier d'affaires Grand Arénas in Nice (France), among others.
Mateo presents himself "as someone who seeks to connect the practice of construction with research and development in both intellectual and programmatic terms. He works in the area between the sphere of ideas and the physical world of reality". His projects respond to the strategy of applying the palette of corporative architecture to mainly European sites.
