Photographic work on some abandoned buildings and constructions throughout the territory of the island of Mallorca, made by the architect and architectural photographer Lluís Bort. These constructions, on many occasions, were erected to fulfill a very specific function and over the years they became obsolete and forgotten. However, this does not mean that they are no longer useful, but that they should have the opportunity to be rehabilitated to enjoy a second life, providing them with a new use for their neighbors and their environment.
Vernacular architecture, in different cultures and in different climatic conditions, has always incorporated, sometimes very explicitly, architectural strategies to manage and organize fluid matter creating very specific atmospheres (in its broadest sense).
HARQUITECTES is a studio founded in 2000 by David Lorente, Josep Ricart, Xavier Ros and Roger Tudó. They combine their professional activity giving classes at ETSAV-UPC, ETSAB-UPC, ETH Zurich and Harvard GSD.
The city of Barcelona has decided to dedicate a corner of Collserola Park to the memory of the architect Rosa Barba Casanovas (Barcelona, 1948–2000).
