Benedetta Tagliabue was born in Milan, Italy. In 1963 she graduated in Venice from the “Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia” in Italy.
Presently Benedetta Tagliabue teaches at the University of Architecture ETSAB (Escola Técnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona) in Barcelona and lectures regularly in architectural forums. In 2004 she received an Honorary Doctor of Arts degree from Napier University and she is a member of The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
Tagliabue began her collaboration with Enric Miralles in 1991, with whom she founded the studio Miralles Tagliabue EMBT. Together their work includes iconic buildings and public spaces in Barcelona such as the Gas Natural tower, Santa Caterina market, and Diagonal Mar park. Buildings in other European cities include the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Utrecht’s town council, and a music school in Hamburg. Under Tagliabue’s direction, the studio currently works not only within the scope of architecture, but also within that of landscape, public space, building restoration, temporary installations, and design.
