David García Martínez

Founding Architect

dg@dawoffice.com
David García creates in early 2010 the project workshop daw, having co-founded Chacártegui García Architects in 2004 where, with Antón Chacártegui, directed the dedication of the study to the public competition and promoting private sources.

Previously, David García collaborates with José Antonio Martínez Lapeña & Elías Torres Architects, keeping a special memory of learning and experience in large projects. Even before, during his last years at university, he worked with Benjamín Pleguezuelos, which owes much of the base and the rigor of its architecture.

daw is intended as a summary of the experiences of each of the people who have worked and will work in the study. From unfinished projects to built projects, the study expresses the evolution of ideas and projects with a clear sense of self-criticism. DAW is a space to reflect on architecture, urbanism and design of all the elements that give scale and materialize their spaces. Within the study David develops, designs and marks the general guidelines for each project and the collaborators and multidisciplinary teams challenge it to improve outcome.
