Batlleiroig Arquitectura, a Barcelona-based practice set up in 1981 by Enric Batlle and Joan Roig, talk about city and nature. Throughout its history, this discourse has materialized in a firm commitment to the envi- ronment, where nature is always the answer. With a holistic approach that seeks to link the definition of the urban to the logics of the landscape, a visionary commitment to inno- vation, and a stable, diverse team invested in ongoing training, Batlleiroig propose 30 commitments that are and will continue to be the backbone of this discourse as trans- forming agents of the city and the territory.

With the motto “Merging City and Nature”, Batlleiroig propose and illustrate by means of projects developed in the three disciplines in which the practice works – landscaping, architecture and urban planning – solutions that seek the well-being and health of people, promote actions to combat climate emer- gency and are linked to the future develop- ment of cities.

The book includes three conversations between Joan Busquets and Enric Batlle, Clara Olariz and Joan Batlle, and Marta Thorne and Joan Roig.
