For Parisian architects inSpace International, ecological considerations are vital. But their environmental approach is about much more than energy, for them every site’s individual context informs what’s to be built there. When founding partners Marta Mendonça and Gonzalo Galindo joined forces in 2003 they shared an architectural philosophy that still drives the practice: “Every project
starts with understanding the site; its physical surroundings micro and macro;
cultural and social contexts. Every site is unique, marked by innumerable differences,” explains Dr Mendonça.
