Architecture Competition Berlin Techno Booth Honorable mention – Joel Perez, Guido Picasso, Ignacio Cuenca and Manuel Bianchi

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our “Berlin Techno Booth” competition – Joel Perez, Guido Picasso, Ignacio Cuenca and Manuel Bianchi from Argentina!

Honorable mention from Argentina

KEMERIO ESTUDIO is a small architecture office based in Rosario, Argentina. It was founded in 2015 by three young architecture students, Joel Perez, Ignacio Cuenca, and Guido Picasso, united by their passion for design and their desire to do more.

Since then, Kemerio has functioned as a parallel platform to their personal work, as a free, flexible, and creative space to carry out competitions, development of private commissions in all the stages and research projects.

Since 2021, Joel Perez has been collaborating with Kemerio Estudio from Berlin, Germany.

BS ARQ is a boutique visualization studio based in Argentina, run by its co-founder, Manuel Bianchi. Characterized by its level and professionalism, BS ARQ manages to bring a unique and original identity to each image produced.

The studio has also participated in numerous architecture competitions, having received distinctions in several of them.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

Kemerio has been involved mainly in housing projects of a medium/small scale. However, we also use this space to carry out competitions of all types and scales, exploring concepts, abstract ideas, and, of course, for fun.

BS ARQ works and collaborates with other architectural visualization studios and architecture offices around the world, making artistic and realistic portraits of their projects and ideas. We believe in a close collaboration and openness in communication with our clients, that's why we focus our attention on every detail, so each project receives unique treatment. We have worked with more than a hundred offices from all over Europe, the US, and Latin America, ranging from small to large scale projects.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture is many things. From being a discipline at the service of people, through its different scales, urban or domestic, to its more artistic or abstract facets, architecture is a language.

Language that, as architects in front of a society, we try to express in the most complete way possible with all its technicalities, regulations, and structures, but also with beauty, delicacy, history, abstraction, and the innocence of feeling that we are inventing something.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We participate in competitions because we consider them a powerful tool for the development of ideas, either conceptual or concrete stuff. We feel able to explore spatial possibilities that may be difficult to achieve in specific commissions.


We are also interested in thinking globally. We find it extremely attractive to get involved with problems from other latitudes.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

We strongly recommend and encourage to participate in competitions. We believe it is a very powerful and fun design exercise. It gives a very enriching dynamism to professional life.
It is also a space where the design variables can be different from those of private commissions, being an excellent opportunity to experiment and explore.
