zigzag is a way of thinking and working based on the search for alternatives and side paths which promote simple solutions with a rich and a complex content; a process in which the pursuit of clarity and the power of ideas are crucial; ideas which attempt to respond to opportunities, context and place in a contemporary way. Trying to develop localized and specific answers instead of the more and more frequently globalized solutions.
ZZa work has been shown in various exhibitions and architectural publications and has been awarded important prizes in ideas and built work competitions, most notably the 11th Spanish Architecture and Urbanism Biennial Award with their 131 social dwellings in Mieres.
