Professor Ruth Vega holds a Ph.D. Cum Laude in Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Madrid and obtained her architectural degree from the same University. She combines her teaching, professional and research experience, all of them in the field of architecture, trying to surpass the borders of conventional architectural practices motivated by the research of new and more open working methods conceived from interdisciplinarity. Her research projects include several publications and collaborations, most notably in the field of Construction Technology and Sustainability.
In 2004 she co-founded Cuartoymitad Arquitectura, a flexible structure based in continuous exchange and collaborative work with professionals coming from multiple fields of knowledge. The work of Cuartoymitad has been exhibited at the XI Venice Biennale, at the IVAM Museum in Valencia and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Badajoz (among others). Their designs and articles have also been published in magazines, books and catalogues related to the fields of art and architecture.
She now works in her own architectural practice Rehark Arquitectura y Diseño, based in Gipuzkoa, recently founded to offer a more local service of architecture and design projects, with a more personal and careful approach.
