Barclay & Crousse Architecture

Barclay & Crousse Architecture was founded by Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse in Paris, France, in 1994. Since 2006 their studio is based in Lima. The studio manages a wide range of programmes in a transcontinental basis, leading a design laboratory that explores the bonds between landscape, climate and architecture. Their work challenges common notions about technology, usage and wellbeing that, from specific conditions of developing countries, can inform and be pertinent in a global context.

Barclay & Crousse has been awarded with the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize 2018, the Oscar Niemeyer Prize 2016, the Peruvian National Prize of Architecture in 2014 and 2018 and the Latin America Prize 2013, given by the International Committee of Architectural Critics (CICA), among other international prizes at the 20th Pan-American Biennale of Quito (2016), the 4th Ibero-american Biennale (2004) and the 14th Buenos Aires Biennale (2013).  The Edificio E for the University of Piura was part of the main exhibition at the 16th Venice Biennale, 2018.

Their most important projects are the Equis House (2003), the Place of Remembrance (2015), the Edificio E Lecture Building at the University of Piura (2016) and the Paracas Museum (2016), all in Peru. In France they realized the transformation of Malraux Museum in Le Havre (1999) and the 170-unit mixed housing programme at Bottière-Chesnaie, Nantes (2010).
