Born in February, when the midday sun feels like a caress, in Valencia, in 1950.
He was born and was eventually one of eleven brothers and sisters. They lived in the Parterre, in Plaza Alfonso el Magnánimo. In 1957 the river flooded and the shops in Valencia redecorated. Valencia was all full of neon, formica and plastic pastel colours and the doleful style of the years after the Civil War was ditched. Those were the years of Cola-Cao, Coca-Cola, Choleck, the bikini, and Barrachina, the Sistine Chapel of sandwiches and mixed grills.
In 1969 he decided to move to Barcelona. In 1981 he became the father of Julia. In 1988 he created Estudio Mariscal. In 1999 he was awarded the National Design Prize. In 2000 he reached his half-century. In 2002 Alma and Linus were born and there 45 people in the studio. At other times there were 64, or 24. Now the bougainvillea in the studio spans 26 metres and the studio is working on 64 projects and a 280-metre sculpture and a 4-page book.
