This book presents a decade of the trajectory of the Magen architects team, between 2002 and 2012, in a total of 15 works and projects collected in 168 pages.

Their way of understanding the profession is based on the perception of architecture as a discipline at the same time technical and cultural, always deepening in the research and the constructive development of their works.

The studio has received numerous awards and distinctions that highlight both their quality and international presence. Endowed with a great capacity to transform challenges into opportunities and take advantage of the faced situations, regardless of the associated difficulty, these young architects from Zaragoza move skillfully among a wide variety of material and constructive solutions, without fixing languages a priori, but with great coherence in their choices.

As explained by Patxi Mangado in his presentation "Spanish architecture in recent years has shown in most cases its ability to give an adequate response and adjusted to the requirements. It has been an architecture aware of its environment and its possibilities, but also of the 'construction' tradition that, initiated by the masters of the sixties and seventies, and subsequently continued by many of the architects of the generations that now have fifty and sixty years, today has been collected by a good number of younger architects. The Magén Arquitectos studio is undoubtedly a good example of this attitude and their works, which handle an abundant and rich sequence of references related to this way of understanding work, are examples of it ".
