Equipo Cotacero Miquel e Ignasi
Estudio Cotacero

¿Dónde estamos?

We have our own offices in Barcelona (Spain, main headquarters), in Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia), Asunción (Paraguay) and associated with local architects in Shanghai (China), Casablanca (Morocco) and Bourdeaux (France). In parallel, as members and under the name of TRIBU Bcn, EME3 or MAB, we collaborate with different professional architecture studios and other disciplines.


The extensive development of projects both at a national and international level, in any of their project phases (from “concept design” to “as built”), and with totally disparate programs and uses, has allowed Cotacero , receive open training at all levels and project scales, which over time has become a notable experience.

Internationally, they have carried out floating house pilot projects in Dubai (UAE), concept designs for various projects (both at the program and scale level) in Saudi Arabia, urban plans in Tichy, Katowice, and Warsaw ( Poland), worked on the renovation of the historic “Illyrian Square” in Durres  (Albania), on the restricted competition for the Seoul Performing Arts Center (South Korea), on leisure and tourism projects in Greece and the Dominican Republic, in sports and social facilities in Dalian (China), etc.
