Architect by profession, designer by adaptation, painter by vocation and writer out of the need to make friends, Oscar Tusquets Blanca is the prototype of the all-round artist that the specialization of the modern world has brought to the verge of extinction. Born in Barcelona in 1941, he graduated as an architect in 1965 from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura in Barcelona. Founding member of the disappeared Studio Per, he worked with Lluís Clotet until 1984 on the great majority of his projects. He is a founding member of Bd Barcelona Design and launched his career as a furniture and object designer with this group. Some of his pieces are part of the collections of important museums such as the MoMA in New York or the George Pompidou centre in Paris. Among other awards he has received the Premio Nacional de Diseño, the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes, the insignia of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and the Creu de Sant Jordi. In addition he has twice won the Premio Ciutat de Barcelona, and several FAD de Arquitectura and Delta de Diseño. In 1994 he revealed his talent as an essayist with Más que discutible (Tusquets Editores). Since then, he has published several books with great success among critics and public. www.tusquets.com
