New book celebrates the work of Ensamble Studio

May 6, 2021

Published by the Chicago-based urban design organization, MAS Context, a new book explores the first twenty years of the Boston and Madrid-based architecture firm, Ensamble Studio.

At Tippet Rise, Ensamble Studio is known for creating three of the nine monumental sculptures and architectural structures that are scattered across the land. Called the Domo, the Beartooth Portal, and the Inverted Portal, the sculptures rise from the earth like geologic features. Separated by miles rather than yards, the three sculptures have served as navigational points, inspiration, shelter, and concert venue for our guests since the art center opened in 2016.

Edited by Iker Gil, the architect and editor-in-chief of Mas Context’s eponymous quarterly design journal, the book features lush images by our friend, the photographer James Florio. James’ images document Ensamble Studio’s projects from the early 2000s through its recently completed Ca’n Terra House, an extraordinary subterranean structure in Menorca, Spain.

Through interviews of the studio’s principal architects, Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa, essays, and James’ gorgeous photography, the book offers insights on the team’s inspirations, explorations, evolution, and vision.
