Andrés Jaque's work has meant a radical transformation of the way in which architecture is understood, communicated and practiced. The impact is global, although especially notable in Spanish architecture. Through microhistory, super work reveals architectures apparently omitted in the stories of architecture, about archives and their operating platforms. If the great stories have focused on works, characters and events that confirm the relationship between discipline and power structures, Jaque insists on the protagonists of agents, human and non-human, that operate in everyday life and are fundamental to understanding contemporary space policies.

Mies and the cat Niebla is the first publication that includes the essays by Andrés Jaque and the platform that he worked in 2003, Office for Political Innovation, from which he operates.

Andrés Jaque (Madrid, 1971) is an architect doctor from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid (ETSAM) and is currently director of the Advanced Architectural Design program at Columbia University in New York. 2003 Office for Political Innovation function from where it develops on Proposals, which have been published in architectural theory journals such as Log, Perspecta, Threshold or Volume; and in architecture magazines such as 2G, a+u, Arquitectura Viva, Bauwelt, Domus and El Croquis and L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui. Andrés Jaque received the Frederick Kiesler Prize (2016), and among the many distinctions he has received, it should be noted the Silver Lion for the best project of the XIV Architecture Biennial of Venice (2014) and the Dionisio Hernández Gil Award (2006).
