New Faculty: Jordi Nebot
Lecturer, Department of Architecture
An architect from Barcelona, Spain, Jordi Nebot has focused his career on the definition of projects and its construction process as a tool of the development of architectural concept. He joins the U.Va. A-school faculty at the same time as fellow principal founder of Arquitectura Agronomia Teresa Galí-Izard. Arquitectura Agronomia consists of a highly interdisciplinary team of agricultural engineers and architects who collaborate with forestry engineers, biologists, civil engineers, and geologists on landscape architecture; Nebot’s work has specifically focused on project development, budgeting, technical and economic control and management, and direction in building.
Nebot first began his work on building projects and planning at Francesc Peremiquel Achitecture Office. He later joined Batlle i Roig Arquitectes—which develops planning, landscape, and building projects—including five years heading its landscape department. His project “Can Joan Dumpsite Recovery” in Barcelona, which he collaborated on with Galí, won several honors: the European Urban Public Space Award, Mediterranean Landscape Prize, and winner of the Energy Waste Recycling category at the World Architecture Festival.
Nebot has previously taught at Barcelona Tech’s School of Architecture and at the School of Architecture de la Salle of Barcelona. He was trained as an architect at the School of Architecture of Vallès at Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Spain.
