We are an architecture studio rooted in rural areas. We learn from the patterns of vernacular architecture to arrive at new forms of contemporary architecture. We seek timeless and flexible solutions that adapt to changing needs, and over time. We collaborate with professionals from different fields to respond in the best way to the needs of our clients, who are also actively involved during the design process. CRUX is founded by Raquel Sola, architect by ETSAV UPV (2013) and Alejandro Gª Pedrón, architect by ETSAV UPV (2014). Both graduated with honors and completed their training in European (FA VUT Brno, TU Delft) and Latin American (PUC Chile) schools of architecture. Their work has been published in specialized media (such as designboom, domus, neo2) and generalists (such as idealista, culturplaza) and, in their collaborations, they have won different project competitions (such as the Civic Center in El Cabanyal in Valencia or the Rehabilitation of the Masía San Josep as the headquarters of the new Montserrat Town Hall. In 2019 his work for the Dussart Pedrón Winery was recognized by the Official College of Architects of the Valencian Community, obtaining the PRIZE ex aequo in the category “Intervention in existing buildings”.
