Architecture Day

To celebrate Setmana d'Arquitectura 2018 (Architecture Week), we propose a conversation during a walk through the Fundació, a workshop for imagining a greener city, a documentary screening on Josep Lluís Sert and a drawing workshop focused on the Fundació building.

10 am – 7 pm Documentary screening, 'Josep Lluís Sert. A Nomadic Dream'

Documentary by Pablo Bujosa Rodríguez about the life of Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert, from his early years in Barcelona to his arrival at Harvard University after his exile in Paris and New York. Continuous screening at the Fundació's Auditorium.

Original version with English and Spanish subtitles. Free admission.

In collaboration with Fundación Arquia

11 am - 7 pm Ongoing workshop, 'Let's Experience the City!'

Barcelona is a very dense city, with few park areas. In the Eixample, specifically, 95% of the surface area is built or paved; only 5% is open soil and breathes. What would happen if we decided to make all available spaces green (sidewalks, courtyards, balconies, rooftops)? What activities could take place there? Urban vegetable gardens, leisure activities, outdoor film screenings? At this workshop, we will turn the city into a greener place-a healthier place for all-and imagine what activities we would enjoy doing in it.

Free activity led by El globus vermell. No reservations required.

In collaboration with the Architects' Association of Catalonia (COAC)

11:30 am Dialogue-visit, 'The Fundació in conversation'

We invite visitors to engage in a lively conversation while they walk through the Fundació.

Conversations allow us to make our knowledge available to others. Having a conversation about a subject doesn't require in-depth knowledge about it; you have to know how to listen, observe and make yourself available to others with respect and generosity. Conversation is a way of learning, because contrasting opinions and sharing information broaden our initial views. In a conversation, there are no protagonists, only different points of view.

Free activity led by El globus vermell.

Reservations required. Online registration

5 - 7 pm Sketching workshop, 'The Fundació through the Eyes of a Sketcher'

The illustrated map technique allows us to convey our own view of a specific environment with sketches. In the course of the activity, we will focus on several different spaces, both within the Fundació (exhibition rooms, courtyards, terrace, etc.) and in its close surroundings (Laribal gardens, Sculpture Garden, etc.). Next, we will put together an illustrated map with the sketches of all participants.

Free activity led by El globus vermell.
