Lluís J. Liñán is an architect from Valencia, Spain who studied architecture at Wien Technische Universität and Valencia ETSAV (B. Arch 2011). He received his Masters degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Madrid ETSAM in 2014, where he taught as an assistant with Professor Emilio Tuñón. In parallel to his academic trajectory, Lluis worked in different offices from Spain and Switzerland, such as Masson Tarsoly Architects or Mansilla + Tuñón, before establishing Rellam with Andrea Gimeno and Xevi Lluch.  A small design cooperative, Rellam has completed different projects in the past few years, including the restoration of the Renaissance Church of Vinaros (2012-2013) or the design and installation of the exhibition Pulchra Magistri in Castellon (2014). Their work has been awarded several competition prizes and was exhibited in the Spanish Pavilion at the XV Architecture Biennale in Venice.  

Lluís’ current research focuses on the impact that digital media has on architectural design, studying how the evolution of the channels that architects use to make their work public directly affects the way buildings are conceived today. He is one of the authors of Adenda al Texto Arquitectura y Verdad (Mairea, 2014), and his writing has been published in many magazines.
