David Chipperfield Architects is coordinating a 12-month study of the coastal area of the north side of Ria de Arousa estuary in Galicia, North West of Spain. The study will consider the natural and built environment and bring together the needs of local industries and the often conflicting needs of development and protection.

A team of graduates and students are currently based in Ribeira in offices provided by the mayor and will present their work in a series of public workshops in June and July. It is foreseen that the study will be further developed in collaboration with the local administrations over the next year.
