Fake Industries Architectural Agonism (Urtzi Grau + Cristina Goberna) and Georgia Jamieson
Fake Industries Architectural Agonism is an office of diffuse boundaries and questionable taste, orchestrated by Cristina Goberna and Urtzi Grau from New York, Sydney, and Barcelona, that explores the power of Replicas, i.e. both literal reproductions of existing works of architecture and, in a sense denoted in romance languages, responses to previous statements.
Currently completing the Velodrome of Medellín and the Superphosphates! master plan in Cáceres, for the last 8 years the office has consistently used the competition Europan (8, 9, 10, and 11) as an alibi to explore the domestic dreams of the south of Europe. In 2014, the office was shortlisted in the MoMA PS1 and Miami Design pavilions and the Guggenheim Helsinki competition.
