Aparicio / Eeraerts is a multidisciplinary practice in spatial design and research founded by Roberto Aparicio Ronda and Elise Eeraerts. The duo has been collaborating since 2012, mainly focussing on the relation between art and architecture, researching the spatial qualities caused by different methodologies and conceptualizations in both disciplines. Their projects substantialize in natural settings or urban public space, dealing with site-specificity, history and material transformation. Aparicio / Eeraerts is currently based in Leuven, Belgium; though their partially nomadic practice brings about ideas, experiments and projects internationally.

Elise Eeraerts studied visual art in Brussels (BE) and Berlin (DE). During her studies she was an exchange student at the Aalto University in Helsinki (FI). She has done an internship at Studio Carsten Nicolai in Berlin (DE). In her art practice, she has won awards and exhibited internationally.

Roberto Aparicio Ronda studied in Valladolid and Bilbao (SP), receiving his master’s degree in architecture from ETSA University, and was an exchange student at the Aalto University in Helsinki (FI). He worked as an architect for various international offices, such as OMA, office for metropolitan architecture, Rotterdam (NL) and Kengo Kuma and Associates, Tokyo (JP).
