José Antonio Gras Iñigo

Architect by the University of Alicante (2014), in 2011 he studies for a year at the T.U. Kaiserslautern (Germany).

Identified with open source movement and free knowledge, is convinced that architectural design processes must be based both on virtual platforms as analog, using the fundamental role that technology and digital tools may have in order to an optimal working of multidisciplinary teams of research and design.

His goal: to contribute to the recovery of the value of public space as a social active.
