MAYRIT is a bienal platform for architecture and design taking place in May 2022 in Madrid, Spain.

It aspires to dialogue with the city’s aquatic past through a series of interventions and events that engage with the city’s infrastructural, geologic, and ecological identities. This edition thus seeks to design and implement an operating model to drive multi-level change in the way biennials are run. A connected and rooted network of national and international architects, designers, art professionals and media becomes the bedrock for a project which aims to consolidate and validate the work of an upcoming generation of experimental creatives. In this moment of uncertainty it is essential to embrace the transdisciplinarity found within current design practices, opening the spectrum of possibility for an urban, cultural and social restructuring of our cities.

Common Accounts

Common Accounts (Igor Bragado & Miles Gertler) is a conceptual architecture practice. Their work examines the intersection of the body with space and matter both online and in real life, and considers extra-architectural material that often passes below the radar of design. Common Accounts was recently listed by the New York Times Style Magazine amongst the most influential architects in Spain. They have lectured at leading institutions such as Harvard University, Cornell University, Princeton University, Columbia University, and Alserkal Avenue in Dubai. They have built work for brands like Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy and they have exhibited in museums and art galleries in Toronto, New York, Istanbul, Rome, Los Angeles and Seoul, where they have been acquired for the permanent collection by the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Korea.

Tres Tipos Graficos
Tres Tipos Gráficos is a Madrid-based design studio, originally focused on cultural projects. Nowadays we export our knowledge working with artists, curators, editors, architects and designers to projects related to Branding, Product Design and Visual Communication.

As a praxis, we analyze the main assumptions of each project so to find new and bold approaches in order to challenge design codes and formats and to consider new visual languages. Tres Tipos Gráficos thus craft unique projects through solid concepts and contemporary aesthetics.
