The connection between landscape and architecture is crucial for the quality of life and sustainable development. The constant research on the proper combination of environment respect, its history and the need for transformation characterises the work of Gonzalo Byrne. In its works contemporary architecture meets tradition and local context. Stylish accuracy, intuition, solutions tailored to specific needs and semplicity shape Byrne’s architecture, which tends to create new bonds between urbanization and nature, present needs and landscape memory.
