Redeveloped for Fundación Tapies

Editorial Montaner i Simon was one of the most important publishing houses in Catalonia and Spain during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first third of the twentieth. For 120 years it produced an extensive catalogue of high-quality publications with a wide distribution network.

After it ceased production in 1981, most of its documentation and printing material was lost or dispersed. With the aim of recovering this legacy, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies has initiated a research project that includes all the contributions from people who were involved, in one way or another, with the history of this publishing house.

Converting the Barcelona football stadium into a 26-hectare park is the proposal of a smart office to renature the cities. The ON-A architecture studio opens the debate to the possible renaturation of urban areas to adapt to the needs of the post-covid future.

The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house. The first thought by Nordest Arquitectura was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest.
