About the Author
We are Jasone Ayerbe García & F. Javier Ruiz Recco. Both are architecs (Ayerbe Recco Arquitectos). We have always lived between maps and plans. We love them. That is the reason why we created PlanosUrbanos in 2014, to commercialize our own graphic works. Our work in PlanosUrbanos is a result of the interest we have in planning, architecture, urban design and, in general, all urban phenomena. The mapping is a powerful form of analysis of these facts, and it is such because it aspires to be universally readable by people of any country or language. Its codes only requires simple graphical mechanisms that incorporate a strong expressiveness. Also a lot of maps in the past has been considered pieces of art. We try to restore, under a contemporary design, these values.
