Miguel Roldán, of Roldán+Berengué, Arqts, is the director of the Barcelona Architecture Center in Barcelona, Spain as well as a graduate level visiting professor who taught at Texas A&M University College of Architecture this spring. Intrigued by the differences between American and European architecture, he recently visited College Station’s newly constructed Fire Station No. 6. Before his departure in May, BRW Studio Director, Ray Holliday took him on a detailed tour of the 25,000 square foot station.
Miguel was impressed by the intricate detail and “American” design. The Station’s striking appearance, the overall intent of the fire house and the size of the fire trucks all made for an enjoyable experience. After the tour the two architects talked about their differing design strategies and the effect of culture on their practice.
