Izaskun Chinchilla studied at Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid from where she graduated with honours in 2001. At the moment, she is in the process of completing her doctoral thesis, entitled “Sustainability and Architecture: Revolution, Crisis or Orthodoxy?”, in the same institution. She is also a Senior Teaching Fellow and Researcher at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
Since 2001, Chinchilla has also been the driving force of her own practice. Its work has been exhibited extensively and has shown in the Venice Biennale on several occasions. Apart from several installations and small to medium range refurbishments, the practice also works on housing and museography projects along with urban planning commissions.
Its largest undertaking to date is the refurbishment of the Garcimuñoz Castle in Cuenca, Spain. Demonstrating a thorough understanding of the historic context, this project manages to find the balance between a desire for new infrastructure and the need to preserve the existing built environment.
