Atxu Amann graduated as architect in the Technical School of Architecture of Madrid (1987). Year in which she was associated with Andrés Cánovas Alcaraz and Nicolás Maruri Mendoza forming the architecture office Temperaturas Extremas Arquitectos, now ACM_arquitectura, with which she has obtained, more than a hundred awards and recognitions. She clearly shows her commitment and ideas:
"In a life trajectory of continuous learning, formation and estrangement, all my activities since my student stage, are linked to actions of social content ideologically positioned and directed towards the fight for a more dignified and fair world in general and in the case of the women and historically disadvantaged groups in particular. I proudly find a balance between my professional activity and an implied responsibility as mother of Juan, Jaime, Javier and Josetxu."
She has been recently chosen as curator of the Spanish pavilion of the Architecture Biennal of Venice 2018.
