"Space and memory" is a tribute to the figure of Le Corbusier seen from the perspectives of current design that have made the students of the Master’s Degree in Design of Spaces of EINA, in the framework of the Architecture Week, organized by Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Architects’ Association (COAC) and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation have joined forces with Barcelona Building Construmat and ArquinFAD.
"Space and Memory" is an exhibition focusing on the reinterpretation and updating of an apartment of the Unité d'Habitation that Le Corbusier designed and built in Marseille between 1945 and 1952.
The exhibition highlights the historical assessment of the pre-existing space, the contextualisation of the building from the point of view of the curious evolution of the Modern Movement, as well as the analysis of interventions carried out by different designers, such as Bourollec, Eccal or Mendini.
The exhibition goes further and proposes design proposals linked to contemporary realities and in the figure of the new user, maintaining the intrinsically architectural value of the existing heritage.
