Mark Fenwick and Javier Iribarren founded Reid Fenwick Asociados in 1990, following which they have been involved in a vast variety of major architectural projects over the last 20 years. Their most important projects cover a great number of architectural typologies; with particular experience in football stadiums, skyscrapers and the development of Retail & Leisure Parks, which has led them to become one of few recognised experts in these particular sectors.
At present they own Fenwick Iribarren Architects and have a number of exciting projects on their books including the recently completed RCD Espanyol football stadium and the new spectacular Valencia football stadium, at 75.000 spectators, one of the largest in Europe.
Fenwick Iribarren Architects expertise lies in quality design for which they have received numerous awards both nationally and internationally, among which is the Las Mercedes Business Park in Madrid, awarded the Asprima Prize in 2006 for Best non residential building as well as Best Business Park in Spain.
Internationally, the New Cornellà-El Prat Stadium, home to RCD Espanyol Football Club in Barcelona, was awarded Venue of the Year 2010 at the Stadium Business Awards where it competed with some of the most modern stadiums of the world, such as Ricoh Arena (Coventry, UK), the O2 (London), Twickenhan Stadium also in London, Cowboys Stadium (Dallas, USA) and Donbass Arena in Ukraine.
Fenwick Iribarren is a leader in sustainable design and has also evolved the concept of “Blue Architecture” which pursues sustainable design concepts which focus on the wellbeing of people.
At present RFA are working on one of the stadiums included in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Bid, and a unique project of architecture and engineering for a Cameldrome and movement system in Doha where advanced technology is introduced into the traditional sport of camel racing.
