Architect, president of the jury for the European Prize for Urban Public Space 2014.
The architect Carme Ribas (Barcelona, 1956), who was the president of the jury for the European Prize for Urban Public Space 2014, has always approached her professional work with a clear sensibility vis-à-vis the urban condition. She began her career as a member of the Urban Projects Service of the Barcelona City Council (1980 – 1987), where she was involved in projects aimed at democratising the public spaces of a city that was emerging from four decades of dictatorship and mediocrity. Since 1985 the studio she shares with Pere Joan Ravetllat has been involved with projects which, from social housing, to public facilities and the improvement of public spaces, have been true to the volition of architecture to serve the city and society.
