Both born in 1924, Federico Correa and Alfonso Milá were schoolmates and went on to attend the same university. Both received doctorates in architecture from the University of Barcelona. They established their architectural studio in 1953, interweaving their friendship with a professional partnership. Their names soon became inseparable. The studio began with a focus on decoration and single-family homes, gradually developing larger projects such as offices, residences or industrial factories. They met all kinds of challenges with distinction, within the framework of architecture, interior design and industrial design. In addition, both architects became dedicated lecturers, with an emphasis on the internationalisation of Barcelona and Spain distinguishing features in the world of design.
