Cíclica is a social studio founded by young catalan architects and researchers offering integrated solutions in architecture, sustainability and participation from an innovative and systemic approach. We develop projects from a multi-scale perspective: from building to territory, taking care of all the resources and material flows (energy, water, materials and organic material). We work to achieve a higher grade of self-sufficiency of the user, by involving the community in the decision-making. Cíclica has professionals with complementary backgrounds and more than 10 years of experience in projects and consultancy, halfway between research innovation and entrepreneurship.
