Federico Correa + Alfonso Milá + Miguel Milá

Modern Movement Influences

Correa and Alfonso Milá were both born in 1924, they were schoolmates and went to the same university, and finally received their doctorate at the University of Barcelona. They set up their architecture studio in 1953, thus enhancing a professional relationship and a strong friendship that has made their names inseparable. Correa and Alfonso Milá have devoted their career to architecture, interior design and industrial design, as well as to teaching. They have spread worldwide Spanish creation and promoted it in the international architecture debate. 

Their main influences have been the Modern movement, professors Josep Maria Jujol, Francesc Ràfols and José Antonio Coderch (with whom they collaborated for some years), and the architecture of northern Italy. Their work is an interpretation of the architectural inheritance of the great Catalan masters, and has ended up being a capital influence in the recent history of Catalan architecture. The Correa-Alfonso Milá style was distinctive already from its beginnings: they created several summer houses by the sea in Cadaqués, with built-in furniture integrated into their architecture, that many others have imitated later. They are also co-authors of the Olimpic Ring in Barcelona, and they created the restaurant of the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid. Correa and Milá carried out as well the interior design of mythical leisure centers in Barcelona, such as the Reno restaurant in 1961 that became a synonym of modern luxury-, Flash-Flash in 1969 that is still as modern and warm as when it was designed- or the Giardinetto in 1974. They also remodeled the office of Barcelona Mayor Pasqual Maragall. In recognition of their work, they have received many FAD awards.
