Maximiliano Arrocet is currently leading the design of a major new cultural centre in Lisbon for EDP. Sited on the bank of the river Tagus, it defies the boundary between external public space and building with a remarkable form on this historic riverfront. Max also leads a number of private residential projects with an expertise in bespoke detailing and historical sensitivity. Arrocet studied at the University of Bath and Westminster University, and has a strong understanding of construction techniques and materiality. His background in engineering and multidisciplinary approach is reflected in projects at all scales, from complex building schemes to sculptural artworks.
