Javier Pérez Herreras

Full  professor

DepartamentU.P. Arquitectura

Area: Architectural Design


Javier Pérez Herreras (Spain, 1967) is a phD in Architecture from the University of Navarre. His research activity, which he develops at different universities, is always related to his professional activity, shared with the architect Javier Quintana at their studio “Taller Básico de Arquitectura”.

His creative and artistic route begins in a laboratory made from “Air boxes” (Pamplona, 2000), analyzing the domestic adventure of the avant-garde. At the Spanish Pavilion of the 8th Biennale di Venezia, he proposes the future ways of inhabitation “Beyond desire” and at Barcelona’s Forum exposes his proposal for “400.000 houses”. He builds “Houses for teachers” and an “umbrella house”, exhibited in the 9th Young Architects Exhibition of the Camuñas’ Foundation. Besides, public architectures in the city, conceived through competitions as exploration places, become a reality at the Parliament of Navarre and the Library of Pamplona, exhibited at the “Young Architects of Spain” exhibition.

His methodological route designs a matrix of creative reason: “Ideo-Logic: Notebook of equations” (Pamplona, 2006). As Dean of San Jorge University (2005/ 2009) he develops the implementation of this academic matrix and the design of a new Campus (FAD 2008 and RIBA 2013) that gives room to this new reason. He proposes, based in his work and research, “An Academic Itinerary” (Illinois, 2011) and “New spaces for Higher Education” in the Consejo de Rectores de Panama. He is an international advisor for the “PLAN 2013” of the School of Architecture of Costa Rica University. He was Associate Editor of the International Design Journal, and member of the “Arquitectura COAM” journal’s Advisory Board.
