Queralt Garriga. Interpretate Architecture. Audio guide of the Pavilion.

“The audioguide is based on a new way of interpreting the built space that understands that it is in the real space where the transmission of architectural knowledge can best occur. It is a model that understands that the best collection of the expected architecture museum are the spaces of the best buildings in the city. Waiting for someone to make them visible and transmittable to the visitor.

It is a model of interpretation of space that understands that architecture orders, structures, and articulates concrete individual and perceptible spatial experiences. And that the best stimulus to acquire architectural knowledge is helping the visitor, in the real space, to be more aware of what is happening right in front of him.

It is a model of interpretation of space that is not based on the transmission of knowledge, data or information but rather, with simple words, helps to make visible, recognizable, interpretable and transmittable spatial phenomena that occur in space, at every moment of the tour, while we are visiting a work.

The route is free between the different selected points and through the Pavilion. The recording contains multiple silences, to give time to look and see, to realize, and to give space to the interpretation itself.

Making a simile with a museum, it would be similar to considering that the Pavilion contains, inside, different works of art, which are the different spatial events that take place inside it. In each event, the audioguide creates a pause and accompanies the visitor in the contemplation of what is there.

All this, to try to make architecture a little closer to the visitor, and that the latter, when visiting it, be more aware of the architectural events that take place.”
