Catalan & Balearic Threads: hard materiality for a permeable architecture

»He who forges ahead creating something new does so like an oarsman, moving forward but back-paddling, looking behind him, towards the past, towards what exists, so as to be able to reinvent its underpinnings.« Jorge Oteiza

 

Rowing: At an extraordinarily difficult juncture for architecture, a new generation of architects has emerged in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands. They seek to navigate the turbulent waters of the present to find their  path towards the future but all the while retain a complicit regard for the past.

 

VOGADORS is a clear commitment to the future presenting a selection of 9 works from some of the most outstanding young Catalan and Balearic architects, all of them with a shared sensibility. These works also illustrate a different way of going about things in response to the growing demand on the part of society for what is necessary for community life.

 

The exhibition documents a sober architecture that uses very simple materials but is of a tremendous technical and intellectual sophistication and includes a strong social and ethical component enabling skillful construction with mindful openness to the environment, people and life without abandoning the most abstract and visual sentimental values. It is the architecture of a generation that seeks to return to traditional values of meaning and continuity. An architecture that wants to adress social contingencies, sustainability as the only path to survival and also the economy of means from an ethical, technical and intellectual standpoint. An architecture common to architects and inhabitants whose primary objective is one of the ethics and social harmony. This exhibition represented Catalonia and the Balearic Islands in the 13th Biennale of Architecture in Venice 2012.
