  • Re-enactment: Lilly Reich’s Work Occupies the Barcelona Pavilion, Laura Martínez de Guereñu

    The idea of the occupation of the Barcelona Pavilion with a work that the history of architecture has unfairly set aside –even we may say forgotten– has been fundamental for the development of the project of the Lilly Reich Grant for Equality in Architecture. The project was born from a clear motivation, which is to reveal the 16.000 square meters of interiors that Lilly Reich designed for the Noucentista Palaces of the 1929 International Exhibition of Barcelona.

    The students of the Master’s degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces of Elisava, led by professors Stella Rahola Matutes and Roger Paez, propose a de-construction of the pavilion of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich from their constituent materials.
    A tribute will be paid to the city of Barcelona rethought as a producing city, and a trilogy is proposed that will allow a three-year collaboration. It will begin with the choice of glass in this first edition, and will work with transparency and reflection, which rather than qualities, are capabilities of this material that revolutionised architecture and of which the German Pavilion is a paradigm.

    In the 1960s and 1970s, large-scale housing complexes were built around the world as a bold solution to meet the need for housing. Five decades later, they are largely ideologically outdated, urbanistically failed and mature for demolition. In this context, the Never Demolish intervention states that these projects can have a second life better than their first, through a sensible renovation: expanding spaces and improving living standards.

  • Expression of Weight | Luis Martínez Santa-María Presentation of publication

    The result of the contest “Fear of Columns” selected the proposal that materialized in the intervention “I do not want to change the world. I just want to express it”. In this same thread Martínez Santa-María now presents an essay on the architectural column and its spiritual significance. “The expression of weight shows the various paths that defy the constructive practice and the imperative logic of gravity. And it is extraordinary that architecture, which does not have the same freedom as painting or sculpture, nor that literature or music, demonstrates, in the same narrow margins that limit it, the value of the challenge it challenges and the paradoxical freedom that belongs to it.”
