Their involvement in investigation has led them to develop industrialized systems for wood construction, that can be implemented in collective housing, educational and sanitary equipments (www.ca2d.cat). Another project under study is the industrialization of theatre hall including facilities that can be adapted to different containers.
One of the main goals of the office is to take part in national and international architectural competitions, especially in public areas.
