Bilingual edition English / Spanish
British architects have enjoyed a prominent place on the international scene, initially through the work of high-profile proponents of the Brutalist movement and later on with works of the High-Tech style. There are notable British studios working around the world, but since the 1990s a new generation of British architects has emerged, claiming their own space far from the hegemonic styles. This new British talent includes important figures such as David Chipperfield (2G, No. 1), Sergison Bates (2G, No. 34), Tony Fretton (2G, No. 46) and Caruso St John.
After meeting each other while working for David Chipperfield, Kevin Carmody (Canberra, 1974) and Andy Groarke (Lancashire, 1971) founded the Carmody Groarke studio in 2006. Based in London, the studio blazed a new trail for itself on the competitive London architecture scene designing temporary installations, exhibitions and commemorative monuments. Despite their reduced scale, their projects occupy their assigned spaces in a decisive manner, transforming them through minimalist structures. This is evidenced in cases such as the studio of artist Antony Gormley, the Studio East Dining temporary restaurant, the temporary remodelling project known as the Filling Station and the projects designed for the Frieze Art Fair, all of which located London. The solid architectural experience that comes from designing impeccable temporary projects such as these has garnered them with larger, international projects such as the Black Forest Visitor’s Centre and the Windermere Steamboat Museum.
Focused on this young British studio, this issue of 2G magazine includes three articles introducing the work of the Carmody Groarke by Edwin Heathcote, Glenn Adamson and Peter Blundell Jones. The magazine's Nexus section includes an essay by the architects themselves, entitled "Making sense of time," along with an interview with Zoë Ryan.

La arquitectura británica ha tenido un importante protagonismo dentro del panorama internacional, primero con las figuras más destacadas del brutalismo y, más tarde, con la llamada arquitectura high-tech. Además de contar con grandes estudios que han trabajado a escala global, a partir de la década de 1990 surgió una nueva generación que reivindicaba su propio espacio alejado de las grandes corrientes hegemónicas y que ha estado representada por personalidades de la talla de David Chipperfield (2G, n.1), Sergison Bates (2G, n.34), Tony Fretton (2G, n.46) o Caruso St John.
Después de conocerse trabajando en el equipo de David Chipperfield, Kevin Carmody (Canberra, 1974) y Andy Groarke (Lancashire, 1971) fundaron el estudio Carmody Groarke en 2006. Con sede en Londres, el estudio se abrió camino en el competitivo panorama de la capital británica construyendo instalaciones efímeras, montajes de exposiciones y monumentos conmemorativos. A pesar de su reducida escala, sus proyectos intervienen en los lugares de una manera decidida, transformándolos mediante mínimas intervenciones, como ocurre en el taller del artista Antony Gormley, el restaurante pop-up Studio East Dining, la remodelación efímera de The Filling Station o en las intervenciones en la Feria de arte Frieze, obras todas ellas ubicadas en Londres. La experiencia en el oficio que les ha dado construir impecables obras efímeras ha dado paso a una nueva etapa más internacional en la que abordan proyectos de mayor escala, como es el caso del centro de visitantes de la Selva Negra o el Windemere Jetty Museum.
La revista 2G dedica este número al joven estudio británico. La publicación cuenta con tres textos de introducción a su obra de la mano de Edwin Heathcote, Glenn Adamson y Peter Blundell Jones, y la sección Nexus incorpora un texto de los propios arquitectos, “Dar sentido al tiempo”, acompañado de una entrevista con Zoë Ryan.
