FAD 2019 Prize for Anna and Eugeni Bach

Anna Bach, teacher on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design and the Master in Design of Spaces, together with Eugeni Bach, are the creators of "Mies Missing Materiality", a project that has been awarded the FAD 2019 Temporary Interventions Prize and the 2019 Temporary Interventions Opinion Prize, with the following evaluation by the jury:

"The Barcelona Pavilion was slowly covered in a white vinyl until it was denuded of all materiality. With this simple and contradictory action, the walls, floors and pillars become a blank canvas, which opens the door to multiple interpretations on such aspects as the value of the original, the role of the white surface as an image of modernity or the importance of materiality in the perception of space. This way, the building becomes a mock-up of itself, on a 1:1 scale, life-size, showing a finished, yet at the same time unfinished, space. The intervention refuses, therefore, the pavilion the material to highlight it.”
