Notorious

Architecture

Notorious is an architecture office based in Buenos Aires, founded in 2015 by Melisa Brieva and Santiago Miret. Since then the office has stood out for the participation in national and international competitions, the development of a variety of researches and the construction of buildings and installations, developing projects that operate both in the small and large scale. Notorious is interested in expanding the register of the discipline of architecture, testing the scope of the project from a systematic and computational perspective, deepening the modalities of the form-forming procedure aiming to the construction of novelty.
