self-office






We are a small practice operating between architecture, landscape, and academia. Driven by specific themes and passing fascinations, the office aims to challenge disciplinary conventions in order to explore alternative realities beyond those driven by the market. Thus, we use space, objects, words, and images as research tools to produce architectural discourse. The office was founded in 2021 by Laura Solsona and Eduard Fernàndez.

Laura Solsona is an architect and urban designer. She studied at Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona (UPC-ETSAB) and Technische Universität of Berlin (TUBerlin), where she graduated with a MSc in Architecture. From 2015 to 2018, she collaborated in the catalan studio Jornet Llop Pastor arquitectes, where she was involved in urban planning and landscape design projects in different cities of Spain and France. After that, she moved to Australia and worked at Aspect Studios, leading projects in landscape and urban design in Sydney, from 2018 to 2021. She taught at the University of Technology Sydney in 2019 and participated in several design reviews.
