MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos is the arquitectural practice lead by Marta Pelegrín (Spain, 1973) and Fernando Pérez (Uruguay, 1969) located in Seville, Spain, that develop architectural works that have won both national and international competitions for the completion of urban design, public space projects, housing, community projects, social services establishments and university buildings.

MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos is a space of reflection and production of architecture which, by means of diverse projects, is linked to professionals and agents involved in creative processes, thus generating a common net of interests. The practice approach to architecture is as a process of building tangible and living contexts. Through their work they have developed an understanding that architecture can also be a means of allowing the environment to be critically studied and realities revealed. The office is interested in producing of architecture with an inherent sense of urbanity and citizenship.

MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos invest the majority of their energy taking part in architectural competitions. Our projects and constructions have won both national and international competitions on several occasions for the completion of housing, community projects, social services establishments and university buildings, amongst which one should highlight the San Francisco Movie Theatre (Vejer de la Frontera, Cadiz), Cañada Rosal Municipal Library (Seville), Health Sciences Faculty (University of Granada), Ciber social Centre Macarena (Seville), Membrilla Health Centre (Ciudad Real), the Primary School Arrayanes (Granada) and the council housing projects in Conil de la Frontera (Cadiz), Almoharin (Cáceres) and Cala (Huelva).

MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos have also worked on urban plans and designed university campuses, parks and open spaces. We have won awards for Utrera's La Consolación Metropolitan Park in Sevilla, the University Health Sciences Campus in Granada, Metropolitan Gravel Mine Park and La Rinconada Fairgrounds in Sevilla, all of which focus a great deal of attention on sustainability and environmental design.

We have also worked on various interior design projects as well as designing several exhibitions including Argantonio:rey de Tartessos (2000), San Isidoro: doctor hispaniae (2002) in collaboration with the artist Gerardo Delgado for the El Monte-CajaSol Foundation (Seville), El Giraldillo (2004) in collaboration with architects M. García&E.Larive for Seville City Council and Instituto de Patrimonio, and Ciudades Ocasionales (2005) for the CAAC, the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art in Seville.

Teaching: Marta Pelegrín and Fernando Pérez compliment their professional work as architects with the teaching of architectural design at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura (E.T.S.A.) in Seville, the Cátedra Blanca-CEMEX International Workshop at E.T.S.A. in Seville and the Facultad de Arquitectura Universidad de la República (FARQ) in Montevideo (Uruguay). They are frequently invited to give talks and conferences about their work at several universities and international institutions.

Research: Marta Pelegrín and Fernando Pérez also coordinate and lead several think tanks and research projects including Atributos Urbanos , a project created for the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art (CAAC) in Seville and presented at the Cervantes Institute in Beijing in 2007. They have also taken part in research and communication projects including: Ciudades Imaginadas (Universidad Internacional de Andalucía UNIA), Ciudades Ocasionales (CAAC), Pecha Kucha Night, Workshop Marbella: Recuperación de Ríos Bosques y Playas Urbanas, the Mesa de Arquitectura at the Foro por las Barriadas and the International Conference La Ciudad Viva (both organized by the Public Works and Transportation Department at the Junta de Andalucía), the III Encuentro Investigación y Docencia (ETSAM) and Encuentro Museos: ¿Educación o Servicio? (UNIA). They were also guest lecturers at "X Master Propio Universitario en Energías Renovables: Arquitectura y Urbanismo. La ciudad sostenible" (UNIA).

Both architects collaborate with various architectural, arts and culture publications. Since 2006 they write for Neutra, an architectural magazine published by the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Sevilla (Architect' Institute of Seville, COAS).
