In this first stage, the catalogue focuses on the modern and contemporary architecture designed and built between 1832 –year of construction of the first industrial chimney in Barcelona that we establish as the beginning of modernity– until today.

The project is born to make the architecture more accessible both to professionals and to the citizens through a website that is going to be updated and extended. Contemporary works of greater general interest will be incorporated, always with a necessary historical perspective, while gradually adding works from our past, with the ambitious objective of understanding a greater documented period.

The collection feeds from multiple sources, mainly from the generosity of architectural and photographic studios, as well as the large amount of excellent historical and reference editorial projects, such as architectural guides, magazines, monographs and other publications. It also takes into consideration all the reference sources from the various branches and associated entities with the COAC and other collaborating entities related to the architectural and design fields, in its maximum spectrum.

Special mention should be made of the incorporation of vast documentation from the COAC Historical Archive which, thanks to its documental richness, provides a large amount of valuable –and in some cases unpublished– graphic documentation.

The rigour and criteria for selection of the works has been stablished by a Documental Commission, formed by the COAC’s Culture Spokesperson, the director of the COAC Historical Archive, the directors of the COAC Digital Archive, and professionals and other external experts from all the territorial sections that look after to offer a transversal view of the current and past architectural landscape around the territory.

The determination of this project is to become the largest digital collection about Catalan architecture; a key tool of exemplar information and documentation about architecture, which turns into a local and international referent, for the way to explain and show the architectural heritage of a territory.

  2. Roques Blanques Cemetery

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Roques Blanques Cemetery

    Roques Blanques Cemetery is located in the Serra de Collserola in Barcelona, at the foot of Pico Madrona, where the mountain massif meets the natural course of the Rubí torrent. The topography is very irregular, with slopes between 15% and 30% and the wooded nature of the area, with pine trees strongly determined the image of the place. The first of the project decisions was to design the niches as retaining walls, to allow the creation of terraces that, like agricultural strips, adapt to the slopes of the mountains that enclose the valley. These terraces are grouped in numbers of two or three, forming closed sets, with a pavement of fine aggregate and with a planting of trees native to the site, combined with trees more typical of gardens (palm trees, bananas trees...) and with bushes trimmed according to geometric shapes, taking on the aspect of an abandoned garden ringed in the landscape. In front of the walls, a stylised pergola with ivy, jasmine and wisteria enables the creation of a more intimate area while helping to create a more global scale of the site. Therefore, we reduce the form of agricultural settlement typical of the Mediterranean as well as that of gardens located in enclosures of similar topography. This set of groupings is traveled by a one-way ring road, based on existing paths from which the different groupings hang with independent exits and entrances. The one-way nature of the road, while making it impossible to get lost, because following it in the indicated direction you get to the starting point, offering all the possible points of view on the landscape and therefore an intense geographical knowledge of the place you are visiting. The old country house that has been converted into the headquarters of the administration services, is the starting and ending point of this tour. Newly built bodies replace the old, attached buildings, while freeing up two courtyards around the main volume that close it off from the outside. The entirety of the cemetery, both buildings and walls, are built with prefabricated concrete blocks, punctuated by a piece of artificial stone, which over time gives it the appearance of a dispersed action in space, and is related to the agricultural constructions that are they are scattered throughout the area.
  3. El Nus de la Trinitat Park

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    El Nus de la Trinitat Park

    The Trinitat interchange is a complex road infrastructure located in the north-east of Barcelona, in an old meander of the Besòs river, next to the Trinitat neighbourhood. It meets the Ronda de Dalt, the Ronda Litoral and three motorways: the C-58, the C-33 and the B-20. It is also facing the Santa Coloma Promenade and the Trinitat neighbourhoodl located approximately twelve metres above the meander. The complexity of the road layout gives rise to an overlap of structures, passages at different levels and tunnels of up to fifteen metres between them in some places. The basic objective was to order, develop and provide public content to the free spaces resulting from the construction of the interchange, as well as to relate these to the consolidated core of the Trinitat neighbourhood with the adjacent neighbourhoods (Santa Coloma de Gramanet, Sant Andreu del Palomar, La Sagrera etc.) through Santa Coloma Promenade and with the rest of the city, by means of a newly created Metro station. Our work was based on a general consideration of the environment that allowed us to understand the treatment of the junction and the links with the motorway, not as a sum of various solutions, but from the perspective of a single project unit, where vegetation, hydraulics, topography, equipment and public spaces are governed from a single layout idea. Of all the free spaces resulting from the layout of the interchange, without a doubt, the largest and most interesting was the central circle. About 300 metres in diameter, limited on its southern side by the train route, the Trinitat Park is located practically at the natural level of the meander. The project assumes as its own objective to facilitate access to the interior of the park from the neighbourhood, by means of an access square through a connection below the infrastructures with the Santa Coloma Promenade and from the metropolitan area through the insertion inside of a Metro station that at the same time connects the different topographical levels with mechanical systems. The objectives were also to reduce both the visual and acoustic impact of the new roads on the neighbourhood and on the park itself, as well as fulfill an extensive program of equipment and services requested by the residents. The geometry of the interchange becomes the project's layout instrument from which all areas of the program are developed: parking, sports facilities, promenade, amphitheatre, pond, paths and groves. The species used in the plantations are the characteristics of the agricultural landscape in the immediate surroundings: cypress barriers in the Empordà, cornfields and banana fields in Girona, plots of olive trees in Tarragona or fruit trees mounted on metal structures in Lleida. The use of vegetation as a means of modifying the scale of the site is reinforced by a topography centered on a single formal effect: a spherical helmet-shaped hill that rises from the lowest level of the terrain to almost reach the height of highways. The plant alignments that follow the riverbank enter the park and go up the hill, accentuating its topography.

  5. Torres Amat Public Library

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Torres Amat Public Library

    La casa-fàbrica Torres-Amat, en la actualitat una amalgama de construccions diverses, està situada a Sallent, una petita població de la comarca del Bages, a la conca industrial del riu Llobregat. La nau, pròpiament dita, és una construcció rectangular feta de mamposteria de pedra de tres plantes d’altura, asseguda sobre les restes de un molí d’aigua que actua a la vegada de fonamentació i soterrani. S’estructura en 3 crugies amb dos línies de pilars de fosa, paral·lels a la façana més llarga. Aquestes línies de pilars, s’uneixen entre elles mitjançant unes jàsseres de fusta sobre les que carreguen unes voltes de ceràmica. La última planta substitueix els pilars per uns cavalls de fusta que recolzen la coberta realitzada amb ceràmica plana i teula àrab. La nau, al estar aparellada a la casa-fàbrica, no tenia escala pròpia, per tant, al segregar-se per a convertir-se en biblioteca, no tenia comunicació vertical. Per altra banda, l’accés des del carrer es produïa, degut a la forta pendent d’aquest, des de la planta més baixa. Aquests problemes d’accessibilitat i mobilitat general són el motor del inici de projecte. La importància de la relació amb el carrer que es dóna a una biblioteca de caràcter popular com la que calia instal·lar a la nau, xocava frontalment amb la obligació de utilitzar únicament les plantes primera i segona. Per aquesta raó es va modificar la entrada, situant-la a la part més alta del carrer, reduint considerablement el desnivell amb la planta primera. Això obligava a crear una planta, entre la planta baixa i la primera, en la que apart de l’accés principal, s’hi podia situar el guarda-roba i les instal·lacions de l’edifici. Aquesta “entre-planta” coincidia amb la crugia de la nau més propera a la casa-fàbrica. Per això, aquesta crugia es va remodelar per complet per ubicar-hi els accessos, l’ascensor, l’escala, així com els serveis i els despatxos, creant un àmbit d’entrada que permetia reconèixer la nau en tota la seva dimensió, apropant visualment les plantes del carrer, i fent presents des del primer moment, tant les estructures de fusta de la coberta com el funcionament general de l’edifici. Com que el programa de l’edifici, destinava la primera planta a lectura i consulta, i la segona a arxiu; la escala es va tractar en dues parts de caràcter diferenciat. Fins el primer pis, amb un sol tram ample i de inclinació molt suau, i fins el segon pis en dos trams més estrets i inclinats que es plegaven sobre si mateixos.
  6. Central Park, Rambla del Celler and Sant Cugat Park System

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Central Park, Rambla del Celler and Sant Cugat Park System

    Central Park In the last ten years, Sant Cugat del Vallès has seen its population increase from three originally rural sectors. The park we present occupies one of these three sectors, the one called Sant Domènec-Colomer. It is a narrow and long strip that extends from the centre of the town to one of the nearby hills, being traversed longitudinally by a stream. Urban planning focuses on two main issues: the concentration of the green area in a central strip that protects the stream, and the adaptation of the road layout and the building to the morphology of the site. Based on this, the park project takes into account the topography of the small valley on which it is located, its agricultural nature and the strong social pressure that its urban immersion entails. The main road, which is parallel to the park, is designed according to two different traces: a rectilinear one, which proposes a clear geometric order, and the sinusoidal one, adapting to the existing layouts. The curvilinear route is broken down into a staggered section which, while maintaining a minimum sidewalk, allows a mid-height promenade to be attached between the park and the street. This promenade, which provides occasional access to the park, is the most urban alternative of the project, becoming a viewpoint over the park and over the city. Inside, the path of the stream is restored, which is accompanied by a path roughly parallel to it, allowing the whole sector to be traversed longitudinally. A system of transverse paths, following the agricultural subdivision, completes the connection with the perimeter limits. The vegetation evokes the specific ecosystems of the area: alignment of deciduous leaves on the stream and the longitudinal path, evergreen on the transverse paths, small evergreen forests on the demarcation of the fields and various types of grasses in the fields. Rambla del Celler and Park System The Sant Cugat park system is the result of the development of a series of partial plans around the Monastery, carried out over the last few years based on a common idea: the project of free spaces as the genesis of the form of city. This idea has allowed us to adapt to various situations, to contradictory plans that have already been approved, or to the disaggregation into infinite forms of execution with very changing promoters and budgets. The parks system project already had the global treatment of all the open spaces of the various developments and the preservation of the memory of the place as its main objective. Through the discussion of the different urbanisation projects and the establishment of homogeneous criteria, the aim was to overcome the individuality of each order to obtain an argument that only with vegetation and pavements would become, apparently, something prior to construction of city. The definition of the checkered grids, which are assumed to generate the layout of the streets, and the grass area that equally covers both the parks and the linear parterres or the squares, aim to create a unitary image of the entire sector. This unit is reinforced by the desire to obtain continuity for pedestrians and bicycles throughout the park system. The Riera Park is the last piece of this park system and allows the physical and visual connection with the Torre Negra natural area and the Collserola mountain range. The Riera Park is designed based on the same arguments, taking advantage of the existing ponds and the presence of the open watercourse. The modification of the topography on the banks of the stream gives rise to a series of lamination ponds that reduce the speed of the water and that enable the growth of riverside species. A series of bridges allow both sides of the watercourse to be connected, enabling the contemplation of this typical landscape of our country.

    Millenium Tower

    The Millenium Tower is linked to the creation of the Macià Axis, which channeled Sabadell's economic growth from the 1980s. It is located on a plot of land near Catalunya Park, surrounded by heterogeneous urban fabrics that combine single-family houses with buildings of various sizes. The tower orders the surroundings and rises as a landmark that, for the first time, exceeds the height of the church bell tower. Although the regulations provided for a plan with a square perimeter, the tower adopts a slightly rectangular configuration, with rounded edges, in order to gain slenderness in the front view. The vertical communications core is slightly off-centre, so that up to four companies can be installed on each floor without the need for corridors. The view from the inside allows a 360-degree turn over the historic city, the growing city and the future city.

  11. Macaw Cages at the Zoo

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Macaw Cages at the Zoo

    The Ciutadella Park’s palm grove is a small garden of around 1,500 m2, made up of a large collection of palm trees and lush tropical bush vegetation. As part of the Zoo's facilities, the palm grove has always been used as a habitat for the collection of macaws. Its secluded location and the noisy and colourful presence of birds make it a corner full of charm, an exotic oasis within the park and a unique place in the city. The immediate construction of a sports hall facing the palm grove gave rise not only to defining its limits, but also to remodeling the existing obsolete cages, which at the same time allowed expanding the collection of macaws and rearranging their exhibition to the public. Faced with more naturalistic zoological options in which the bird's habitat in captivity tries to assimilate to that of its natural environment in freedom, our proposal sought to recreate a garden, full of cages of exotic birds, in the manner of the settlers from overseas, the Indians, who built in their homes in the mid-19th century, such as the Samà Park in Tarragona or the Castanys Tower in Olot, both designed by Josep Fontseré, precisely the author of the Ciutadella Park. The design of the cage was carried out in close collaboration with the Zoo's technicians. The total area of each unit is 21.5m2, of which 14.40m2 are visible to the public and the rest is hidden; 5.20m2 are allocated to the bedroom and 4.90 to the maintenance corridor. The main structure of the cage is made up of a mesh of cylindrical tubes that close in on themselves until they form a metal cage. The need to obtain different degrees of transparency has determined the various qualities of the outer enclosure of the cage. The area where the bird can be seen is closed by means of an electro-welded mesh except in its front part where a large glass is incorporated that allows the macaws' vision to be detailed. The bedroom and the maintenance corridor are closed with wooden slats dyed in many colours. The cage has two accesses, one direct to the exhibition area and another to the maintenance corridor that surrounds the bedroom, which allows the keepers to carry out their maintenance work without being seen by the public and without having to access the inside of the cage. The project has concentrated its efforts on the design of a sufficiently complex cage so that, through its repetition, it is possible to order the garden through the public’s path. The main criterion has been to ensure that the cages, arranged in an apparently random manner, offer different perspectives from the path of the public so that the whole is perceived as a picturesque system without rules and continuously surprising. Immersion in the palm grove is carried out in a civic manner, seeking to promote its exoticism while respecting its secluded character at the same time.
  12. La Ciutadella Park Sports Pavilion

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, MMI Gestió d'Arquitectura i Paisatge, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    La Ciutadella Park Sports Pavilion

    The Ciutadella sports centre has approximately 4,500m2, which includes a regular indoor basketball court, an outdoor sports court, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, a gym and the corresponding changing rooms and restrooms. The project assimilates the scale of the sports centre to that of the other buildings in the Park, trying to rearrange the program to occupy the minimum possible floor and at the same time not to rise above the other buildings. The building, like the rest of the Passeig Picasso, acts as a fence for the Park, laying the foundations for the future fence of the Passeig de la Circumval·lació. That is why the ground floor is closed with glass, looking for maximum transparency between the street and the park. The rest of the plants alternate with glazed enclosures with solids, depending on the indoor use, and are covered with wooden slats to protect them from the sun, and blend in with the trees, looking for a place of their own near the shade.
  13. Landscape Restoration of the Vall d'en Joan Landfill site

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Landscape Restoration of the Vall d'en Joan Landfill site

    The Vall d’en Joan is located in the Garraf Natural Park, within the municipal terms of Begues and Gavà in the Baix Llobregat region. Originally, the site was one of the many narrow and winding valleys that formed the Garraf massif. The beginning of its use and exploitation as a landfill dates back to 1974, and since then it has accommodated most of the urban waste of Barcelona and the municipalities of its metropolitan area. At the time its closure began, it occupied an approximate area of 85 hectares and had been covered up to two-thirds of its original height. The situation of the deposit before the refurbishment corresponded to a large terrace with steep slopes where a layer of 20 centimetres of soil which covered the waste but which did not involve its definitive sealing had been placed. In addition, the higher parts of the valley were still being mined. The image of the valley occupied by the deposit contrasted with the orographic and vegetal richness of the landscapes of the natural park that surrounded it. It currently takes up an area of 60 hectares, 20 of which have been restored as part of the "Executive Project for Closure and Restoration of the Controlled Deposit of Vall d'en Joan", in zone 1-2 and the access to this area. The rehabilitation project is determined as a global proposal for action, defining topographical criteria for the configuration of terraces and slopes, a drainage network for the collection of internal water independent of the external, Biogas extraction network, routes and revegetation to apply by phases. The overall goal of the project is the reintegration of the Controlled Deposit into the Garraf Natural Park, which is carried out using the resources of the nearby agroforestry mosaics and enhancing the development of the primary ecosystems established there, which over time will evolve into situations adapted to the environment. The process of planting the vegetation is carried out from indigenous, resistant species with little water needs and adapted to the natural environment. The plantation is organised in plant structures such as brambles, thickets or Mediterranean maquis, shrub species and trees and crops of indigenous, leguminous species. The restoration of the Deposit aims to enhance the character of the open space that this area can recover due to its proximity to several metropolitan towns, the ease of access and the possibility of parking make it an accessible space and a new access to the Garraf Natural Park in connection with the long-distance GR trail.
  14. Vallès Occidental Waste Treatment Centre

    Batlle i Roig Arquitectura, Enric Batlle i Durany, Joan Roig i Duran

    Vallès Occidental Waste Treatment Centre

    The Waste Treatment Center (CTR) is located on a slope of the Coll Cardús mountain massif, in the municipality of Vacarisses, in the region of Vallès Occidental. This site was currently occupied by the facilities of a controlled waste deposit on the verge of exhausting its capacity. This fact caused the management entity of the controlled deposit to consider it necessary to regulate its closure and to study the possible future uses of the area. The choice of the location of the CTR was made taking into account criteria of logistical and economic suitability, as well as minimisation of the environmental impact that entails the installation and exploitation of activities related to waste management. The activity of the pre-existing landfill had not been respectful of its immediate surroundings and had caused alterations to the natural environment and modifications to the existing topography. For this reason, it was decided to implement the facilities in the areas where the activity of the landfill had already spoiled the natural environment. Despite the magnitude of the centre’s facilities, the project aims to achieve maximum landscape integration with the environment. For this, a maximum topographical adaptation is sought, where the impact of the roofs and façades is minimised through the subsequent landscape revegetation. The project envisages the construction of a large roof under which the two large treatment areas will be located. These, separated by the access road, have different heights and are based on different elevations, which is why the roof changes its geometry depending on the programmes and the dimensions of each site. The variety of requirements that the roof must accommodate, forced ventilation, skylights, etc., is homogenised through a graphic structure that also allows it to be converted into a landscape cover. The different circles contain soils, gravels and upholstery specific to the region that will eventually have to balance the impact of the installations without falling into camouflage or imitation.

    Sant Joan Despí Funeral Services

    The proposal for the new funeral parlour of Sant Joan Despí improves the services of the existing cemetery with a new mortuary that complements the current offer of services, dignifying access to the existing cemetery. The new funeral parlour is integrated into the landscape, respecting the nature of the park that the place must have, given its urban situation, preserving and reforesting the existing vegetal slopes around the area of implementation and incorporating part of the volume of the building to the existing topography. The floor of the building, of 700 m2, has two clearly differentiated areas; on the one hand, the public area formed by the set of rooms designed to serve the users of the facility and, on the other hand, the private sphere configured by the service pieces necessary for the preparation of the deceased and the movement of coffins between them. A patio system completes the organisation of the floor plan, organising and providing light to it.

    14 Subsidised Housing Units, Cultural Amenity and Rehabilitation of Can Bisa

    Can Bisa is a colonial house of great heritage value located in the historic centre of Vilassar de Mar. Around it, the city council decided to create a pole of social attraction; forming a new public space in its gardens and building a new multi-family housing block with an auditorium, on the annexed plot of Can Bisa that was previously occupied by the Can Bosch factory. This conglomerate of uses and buildings relate naturally today, thanks to the unitary treatment we gave to the complex. Timeless elements such as the ceramic lattices, the painted concrete, the plasters with different textures and the tile roof, have helped us relate comfortably to the environment and convey a unique character to the new set of equipment.

    Reurbanisation of Prat de la Riba Avenue and Enric Morera Square

    Reurbanisation of Prat de la Riba Avenue and Enric Morera Square. The intention of the proposal is to regenerate one of the main backbones of the Morera neighbourhood. The avenue is adapted so that it becomes a slow traffic route, with wider sidewalks and trees. The lighting network is renewed using LED projectors and the containers are buried. The proposal also incorporates Plaça d'Enric Morera as well as a small public space at the meeting with President Companys Avenue. The arrangement is completely open and integrated with the avenue in order to configure a new fully accessible and equipped civic axis. Both squares take advantage of the steep unevenness of the avenue to generate stands and individual squares with children's play areas. At the same time, this approach makes it possible to integrate into the proposal the sets of banana trees and mulberry trees that exist in both squares.

    Environmental Recovery of the Embankments and Approaches to the River Llobregat

    The objective of the proposal is the identification of the main conditions for the environmental recovery of the Llobregat River, as well as the definition of the necessary actions to improve its accessibility from the different municipalities that surround it and enhance its social use to carry out leisure activities. It is about thinking about the river as a complex, which gives it a unitary landscape treatment criterion, which serves both to facilitate its future maintenance, and at the same time to understand it as a unit. The development of the proposal is based on understanding the river from two complementary points of view: - The river as a living and changing entity, full of life and a natural space with its own dynamics and functioning. - The river as a green and peri-urban leisure space, which should be a place of enjoyment for citizens, while respecting the environment in which it is located. The landscape proposal understands the river as a green space connected to the city and its surroundings.
