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Historical Archive which, thanks to its documental richness, provides a large amount of valuable –and in some cases unpublished– graphic documentation.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. Rehabilitation and Extension of Golferichs House

    Rehabilitation and Extension of Golferichs House

    The Golferichs House, commonly known as the "Chalet", was designed in 1901 by the architect Joan Rubió i Bellver as a residence for Mr. Macari Golferichs. This was one of his first experiences on single-family housing, which would later become one of the main constants of his work, with examples such as the Roviralta House of 1913, or the Pardals Tower of 1919. The alteration caused by the construction of the annex building and the change of a residential use to that of an educational centre was quite obvious and was one of the main points to be resolved in the proposal. Built modestly in its materials and structural systems, it collapsed the reading of the Golferichs House as a villa from the beginning, that is, as a building free from three of its sides. This building not only prevented the contemplation and perimeter of the House, but also eliminated the important eaves and made it impossible to access the small backyard. One of the first objectives was, therefore, to return the original appearance to the Chalet. To this end, the rear section of the annex building was demolished, and a new communications core was rebuilt. Action at this point was valued as fundamental as it would establish the future relationship between the two buildings. The new staircase is attached to the partition and the services are concentrated around it. This solution frees up the maximum surface area on the floor and allows a very transparent façade. On one hand, this makes it possible to incorporate the new wall of the staircase, the existing partition, and the building’s façade within the same arrangement system; on the other hand, the desired visual relationship of each lobby with the Golferichs House. The Eixample’s traditional typology, where the light galleries open onto the backyard, was recovered here due to the need to rebuild a new façade and give a new access to the building. Inside the Golferichs House, which was badly damaged and deteriorated in many places, the spatial and distributive structure where the different rooms were arranged around a central core was especially valued, causing a series of visuals and transparencies. While most elements such as ceilings, eaves, stairs, sgraffito, etc., were completed or remade mimetically following the existing model, in some specific cases the uniqueness or strategic location of some pieces advised to seek contrast. This contrast, based on the different textures and constructive logic of a modern material such as stainless steel, is incorporated in an overlapping and objective way.
  3. Unbar

    Ravetllat-Ribas Arquitectes, Pere Joan Ravetllat i Mira, Carme Ribas i Seix


    In the 80s, night bars in Barcelona become a kind of differentiated scope from other type of interventions. In the Unbar project there was an interest in the relationship between different materials, always maintaining the coherence in its formal expression. The bar experiments spaces created from duality and contrast between different constructive logics. On one hand, the curve made through wooden ribbons transformed the irregular perimeter of the initial bar leaving a service corridor and two small bars. On the other hand, the stuccoed walls and horizontal stainless steel planes opposed completely withdifferent geometries and textures. Stainless steel, thought of not as a finish but rather as support, allowed to offer on bars and shelves bright surfaces with minimal width. Wooden ribbons’ flexibility, however, had the virtue of adapting itself to the curve and offer a texture based on shadows and colour.

  5. Roquetes Football Ground

    Roquetes Football Ground

    The impact caused by the layout of the Ronda de Dalt on the Roquetes neighbourhood Football Field, used by the Roquetes and Muntanyesa Football Clubs, causes its redistribution inside the plot, resulting in the transfer of the previous service building and the stands. The project includes the demolition of all previous constructions; the creation of new closing walls adapted to the modified perimeter of the lot; the leveling, drainage and lighting of the playing field and the construction of a stand, equipped with services and changing rooms. The slopes of Via Júlia with respect to the level of the field mean that the proposed access to the corner with D'en Tissó Street is through a large balcony, from which you can access both the stands and service areas at pitch level. At the confluence with the Ronda, a new circular wall consolidates the corner and includes the players' lobbies inside. The shape and size of the resulting lot, as well as the important boundary with Via Júlia, give rise to a placement that consolidates the façade on D'en Tissó Street, where the stands for spectators are located. It is a rectangular piece protected by an equally rectangular canopy, identifiable from Via Júlia. The upper part of the building, in connection with the stands, is an observation deck where a small bar is placed, thus expanding the space for spectators. From this roof, a new contact with the street is offered through a ramp. The proposed construction is basically a structure of reinforced concrete walls and pillars that support a continuous slab, also of reinforced concrete, on which the stand fits. The same walls that support the mentioned slab are the ones that contain the difference in level between the street and the playing area and finally appear as the façade or enclosure of the building.
  6. Ases 5 Residential Building

    Ravetllat-Ribas Arquitectes, Cèsar Díaz Gómez, Pere Joan Ravetllat i Mira, Carme Ribas i Seix

    Ases 5 Residential Building

    It is an operation that includes two buildings located in the old city of Barcelona, near Santa Maria del Mar’s church. One of them forms the intersection from Ases and Espaseria Street. The projected building, four stories high, is organised with a single vertical core that serves two 40m2 dwellings in each floor. All the service rooms ventilate through a single interior patio that, by the fact of being joint to the neighbouring building, improves the ventilation and lighting of some of its rooms. On the façades, the window voids respect the typical proportions of the buildings around and aims to redefine them through the material used -aluminium- in a proposal escaping from a literal contextual mimicry, looking for an integral solution including framings, jambs, sills, shutters, and even railings. Roof pergolas close and vertical metallic stripes on the edges of the façades are the elements that relate the building with its immediate surroundings.

    Alexandre Galí Secondary School

    El projecte disposa un edifici principal, de planta baixa més tres plantes, on s’allotja bona part del programa, i un altre edifici situat a l’extrem oposat del solar destinat al gimnàs. Tots dos edificis, juntament amb la rampa que els connecta, delimiten l’àmbit de la pista esportiva. L’absència d’alineacions clares on recolzar les edificacions i la irregularitat dels perímetres propicien una solució que genera una geometria pròpia per tal de definir els diferents espais, deixant la resta del solar, fins als marges, com a pati de joc. L’edifici principal és format per un anell exterior d’estructura de formigó on es col·loquen les aules, i un cos central d’estructura metàl·lica i plementeria de pavès que conté les tutories, els accessos i la sala d’actes, un gran pati central cobert situat per sota del terreny.
  9. Rehabilitation and Extension of the Schools in Seròs

    Rehabilitation and Extension of the Schools in Seròs

    The project proposes to dispose the school programme on the plot in a way that, even though making possible to distinguish the two centres, its proximity and the possibility to concentrate some of its services are optimized. The existing school remains as the main building limiting with the square and it is where the uses related to the high school will be placed. On the other side of the plot, a new building constitutes the opposite façade and will contain the rest of the educative uses of the school. The rest of the plot bordered by these two buildings is divided into two parts with the placement of a central building that will accommodate those uses that can be shared by the two centres: the gym and the cantine.
  10. Girona 37 Dwellings

    Girona 37 Dwellings

    S'ha volgut donar el màxim d'unitat als dos fragments d'illa, tan per aconseguir un acabament digne del conjunt com per fer possible la comprensió d'ambdues parts com a pertanyents a una mateixa lògica projectual. Es plantegen dues escales de dos habitatges per replà al Carrer Girona amb un altura de PB + 4 plantes. Aquesta part del solar conté 16 habitatges (7 habitatges de 90 m2 útils amb 4 dormitoris i 9 habitatges de 70 m2 útils amb 3 dormitoris). A la banda del Carrer Riera Gasulla es proposa una única escala amb tres pisos per replà. La planta tipus conté 2 habitatges d'uns 70 m2 útils, amb el mateix programa que l'esmentat anteriorment, i un habitatge més petit d’1 dormitori. A la planta superior es suprimeix l'habitatge més proper a la mitgera proporcionant un augment de superfície a un dels habitatges restants i configurant un total de 8 habitatges. La suma total és de 24 habitatges. S'ha cregut oportú situar totes les sales d’estar-menjador a l'exterior i amb la millor orientació possible. És per això que o bé donen directament a sud o són passants i donen a dos costats oposats. Els plecs de façana milloren l'orientació de les diferents estances de l'habitatge i permeten un adequat contacte amb l'exterior, alhora que contribueixen a uniformar el nombre d'obertures. Totes les cuines ventilen a l'exterior mitjançant un safareig-estenedor i un pati destinat a instal·lacions. A la planta baixa es situen els 3 vestíbuls amb entrada a nivell des dels carrers. Es preveu un espai per a la reubicació d’una estació transformadora i 3 locals comercials, dos a les cantonades i un altre donant al carrer Girona. També en planta baixa es preveu l'accés a l'aparcament que conté 9 places a nivell de planta baixa i 17 en planta soterrani. L'estructura de l'edifici s'ha plantejat com una retícula senzilla i ordenada. Aquesta disposició, juntament amb unes llums regulars i raonables d'entre 4 i 6 metres, permet un bon aprofitament. El tancament exterior és d'obra vista i la coberta és de teula ceràmica, amb una pendent del 30%.
  11. Centre Cívic Pont Major

    Centre Cívic Pont Major

    In the patrimonial building of Can Regàs its façade is respected integrally, as well as the structural system of three centrelines with bearing walls. The extension makes reference to the lineal growth of the plots, perpendiculars to the road and the river, and distance themselves clearly of the height of the façades. At the same time, the aim to create an intermittent façade, capable of organizing the back spaces of the new square. Inside the original building the design works with the proportionate scheme of the existing structure. The central section, on the ground floor, acts as a hall and multiuse room of the building. From here, it is connected with the vertical core, placed on the southern area, and the auditory and library, located inside the extension buildings. Thus, a reduction in circulation spaces is achieved, while the representative aspect of the most characteristic and valuable space of the building is emphasized.
  12. Passeig Garcia Fària Avenue

    Ravetllat-Ribas Arquitectes, Pere Joan Ravetllat i Mira, Carme Ribas i Seix

    Passeig Garcia Fària Avenue

    The project proposes the arrangement of the surface of Passeig Garcia Fària between Bilbao and Josep Pla Streets. Before 1992, with the construction of the Ronda Litoral, the Passeig Garcia Fària Avenue was shaped with a double carriageway section with a central partition. On the sea side, the construction of a car park attached to the retaining wall of the Ronda left its roof pending urbanisation. The new road scheme has moved traffic on the sea side of Garcia Fària to the other side of the Ronda and has extended Bac de Roda and Selva de Mar streets in the form of a bridge over the Ronda Litoral. The road addition to the central trunk of the Ronda located at the height of Josep Pla has been moved to the intersection of Selva de Mar with Garcia Fària, causing the demolition of part of the existing car park. The new Diagonal-Mar super-island delivers a new grade to Garcia Fària that has forced the longitudinal profile of this street between Selva de Mar and Josep Pla to be modified. All this means that the area of action has been defined as the existing surface between the current average and the limit of the Ronda Litoral, plus the mountain road of the section between Selva de Mar and Josep Pla. The resulting piece to be developed is a strip about 40 m wide and approximately 1.3 km long, divided into three strips by the road that crosses the Ronda Litoral. This strip is divided at the same time into two sub-strips: the coverage of the car park facing the Ronda and the remaining space between the current partition and the wall of the car park. The project starts from this consideration and consolidates the division by giving shape to a paved promenade over the car park and a landscaped strip. The permissible overloads of the existing car park (1,000 kg/m2) and the future maintenance of the same have led to the decision to abandon the possibility of landscaping and building on its roof. That is why we have thought of a two-colour asphalt pavement as the protagonist of this strip intended mainly for bicycle traffic, fitness circuits, jogging and other similar activities. We think that emphasising the large dimension of this space, by stripping it of overlapping elements, reinforces one of its primary qualities. For the rest of the promenade, a linear garden organised through trapezoidal pieces of green is proposed that allow permeability between the pedestrian crossings and the esplanade above the parking lot. The sewing of both areas is done thanks to the interruptions of the flower beds and the elevated platforms, overlapping with the car park roof, which act as viewpoints over the sea. Some of the planted areas rise above the natural level, offering lawns that also extend towards the beach. The organisation of the walk had to take into account the crossing of vehicles towards the access ramps to the car parks, which are far from the new pavement line. These crossings are made in the form of a gap between the vegetation. To mitigate the fracture caused by the ramps, small slabs are built that, in the form of a bridge, cross them at their central point. The arrival at the new Bac de Roda and Selva de Mar bridges requires the promenade to be recreated at these points to connect it with the new levels. The cross section has been designed with slopes of between 1.5% and 2% towards the Garcia Fària road. The need to allow drainage and the new width of the promenade force the re-creating of the levels above the current car park and, consequently, the over-elevation of the existing railing, which is done by means of a prefabricated piece of concrete that fits into the original wall. The planting has been planned with species appropriate to the unique situation of the promenade: first line of sea, without built elements to protect it from its influence. Organised in strips, it also helps to understand the whole promenade as a unit. Basically, there are two types of parterres. Those that flow towards Passeig Garcia Fària are planted in bands ordered by vegetation height: the first two are grasses of different heights and finally they are located in the tamarisks. The double-sloped parterres are covered with grass on the side facing the sea and planted with a mass of white sand on the opposite side. In some strategic areas, small groves of mulberry trees appear on ivy upholstery, which become areas of shade. Palm trees are planted as single trees in groups of two or three. Mimosas and lavender plantations complete the landscaping of the promenade. The boundary with the paved road is consolidated with a linear parterre that contains the existing palm trees and the oleander plantation also existing in the current partition is thickened. The lighting is solved with a pattern of PRIM-type staves that organises the entire area on both sides of the Ronda Litoral. Special care has been taken in leveling the crowning height of the staves regardless of the variable topography of the anchor points.

    130 Dwellings on the Riverfront in Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Phase 2)

    La urbanització del marge del riu Besòs a Santa Coloma de Gramenet havia generat un front edificat que donava l’esquena al riu. La transformació de la llera del Besòs en un nou espai públic de qualitat va plantejar la necessitat de reordenar la seva façana. L’edifici d’habitatges que aquí es presenta correspon al desenvolupament de la segona fase d’un planejament que pretén assolir els següents objectius: - Garantir l’obertura de la ciutat al riu establint continuïtats visuals i generant nous espais públics. La nova plaça central, anomenada Plaça de les Cultures, vol afavorir la permeabilitat entre el riu i la ciutat. - Resoldre la doble escala que el lloc presenta, compatibilitzant la resposta a la nova façana fluvial amb la voluntat d’integrar l’edificació amb el teixit urbà existent. - Permetre que els nous habitatges gaudeixin majoritàriament d’unes òptimes condicions de vistes i assolellament.

    Visible des del Castell i el Pont, l’edifici vol ser reconeixible per la capacitat de donar resposta als diferents àmbits on se situa, a mig camí entre el parc i la ciutat. L’edifici es fragmenta per obtenir un perímetre necessari per a la disposició del programa, al mateix temps que permet travessar-lo facilitant els recorreguts en diagonal i establint relacions des del parc cap a l’Avinguda i des de la ciutat cap al nou recinte firal. Aquesta planta permet configurar una bona disposició del programa establint crugies òptimes per a cadascun dels usos, reduint la circulació interior i generant espais de relació. L’element separador, de gruix variable, serveix de transició, conté espais servidors i afavoreix l’absorció acústica. A l’exterior, el revestiment modular, a base de pannells de formigó arquitectònic de gran format, garanteix la continuïtat de la textura de la façana al mateix temps que adequa el seu tractament a cadascuna de les orientacions i les necessitats dels usuaris.

    Rehabilitation of Can Marfà

    The project consists on the rehabilitation of the former textile factory Marfà as a civic centre and library. The strong character of the building determined the level of the intervention. It is decided to demolish all the non-original buildings to accentuate the main volume. A new extension on the ground-floor organizes the public space and the entrance. In the interior, we avoided dropped ceilings and opaque coatings to highlight the original structure.

    District 3 Library

    Located between the street’s sidewalk and one of the paths projected for the park, the building aims to give meaning to the topographical difference between the street and the torrent’s esplanade. The proposal involves two stories in order to build one facing the park and recovers the roof as a public space on the city level, and another one on the city level on the street that becomes the main access and guarantees the visibility of the library from the city.

    Ravetllat-Ribas Arquitectes, Nicolás Markuerkiaga, Pere Joan Ravetllat i Mira, Carme Ribas i Seix

    Quatre Camins Dwellings for the Elderly

    This new residential building is located in a unique location near Collserola, where the small scale of the neighbouring domestic buildings is mixed with teaching or care facilities of a larger entity. The proposal seeks an implementation scale appropriate to the environment, complementing the domesticity of the single-family residential fabric with the greater dimension and scale of other pieces in its environment. An L-shaped building aligned to the streets and open to the good orientation and views is proposed, where most of the houses face south or south-east. The volume of the building is compact towards the street, with a north façade where the access corridors to the homes are arranged and an energy filter is generated. On the other side, it breaks down and steps towards the interior of the lot, making the contact with the neighbouring courtyards more domestic. The main access is located at an intermediate level that brings the building closer to Quatre Camins Street. The adaptation to the topography allows the creation of two large community spaces, where the elderly can carry out outdoor activities. The first, located on the first floor, is a terrace in direct relation to the garden space and the other, on the third floor, connects to the laundry and the deck. All the homes have a comfortable space that connects them to the outside, in order to obtain better protection against the wind and privacy from the neighbours. In addition, the ceramic lattices and adjustable blinds work as temperature modulators and are a passive energy saving measure that increases user comfort. In general, a construction with minimal ecological footprint and low energy demand, compact and with good thermal insulation is proposed. The use of solar radiation and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, following PassivHaus standards, allows a 75% reduction in total consumption, and an A energy rating.

    Rehabilitation of Sant Antoni Market

    The Sant Antoni Market building, built according to a project by the architect Antoni Rovira i Trias and the engineer Josep M. Cornet i Mas, in 1882, is one of the most emblematic public buildings in Barcelona’s Eixample neighbourhood. It occupies an entire island and is organised in the shape of a Greek cross, reproducing in geometry and dimension the layout of the Eixample alignments. The cover. Over the years it had disfigured the original roof, replacing the tile with fiber-cement slabs. The project has recovered its two-tone ceramic tile finish, placed on wooden panels. The original wooden support straps have also been maintained where possible. Skylights have been redone on units that were once blinded. The walls. The existence of an underground part of the bastion of Sant Antoni, and the corresponding escarpment, have been decisive elements in the final drafting of the project. It is proposed the complete the maintenance of the existing part of the bastion and the almost complete maintenance of the escarpment, making it possible to understand and revive the space of the moat of the wall. These pre-existences have been incorporated into the project as an opportunity to increase the public interest of the whole. Three Markets. The proposal to organise the functional program of the Market is to make possible, for the first time, the cohabitation of the two markets (Fresh Market and Charm Market), inside, without disturbing each other. The proposed layout of the stops respects the central axes that allow us to perceive the full dimension of the diagonal of the island. On the outside, the Sunday Market is located under pergolas located on the perimeter of the island. The section. The building shows the ability to interrelate the different uses it contains. In basement floors, the heights are combined to achieve a higher gauge in the loading and unloading area. A first basement is dedicated to the new commercial uses, civic centre and museum.
