Enric Miralles won a number of architecture competitions in Spain with Helio Piñon and Alberto Viaplana. This architect studio designed the Barcelona projects Plaça dels Paisos Catalans and Park in Besós. Enric Miralles’ architecture practice later titled EMBT and had a main office in Spain with a smaller studio in Germany. Benedetta Tagliabue Miralles runs the office after the death of Enric. The work of Enric Miralles was contemporary and expressive, very different from the Modernist architects dominant on the continent when he set up, or those in the British Hi-Tech architecture movement.
