Class of 2012: Young Spaniards launch startups - Article Photos 1/5

In this Monday, Feb. 25, 2013 photo, from left, architects Juan Francisco Lopez, Mar Parreno and Mario Perez, three of the founders of the Factoria 5 digital design company, work in their office in Madrid. In a sparse office measuring just 42-square meters, or 452-square feet, in downtown Madrid, five young Spanish architects who counted themselves among the nation's huge ranks of jobless sit almost elbow-to-elbow in their communal space _ glued to computer screens as they create 3-D animated videos and virtual tours of commercial and residential construction proposals for far-flung sites in Britain, Panama and Malaysia and Zambia. In February, the founders took home 2,000 euros ($2,700) each for the projects they delivered. That's good money for professionals in a field so devastated by Spain's busted building boom that many of the university classmates the Factoria 5 crew graduated with a few years ago are working abroad, unemployed or have given up on the profession.
