MIRALLES, A TRIBUTE THAT REMEMBERS THE GREAT ARCHITECT IN ALL HIS FACETS
The Fundació Enric Miralles, with the participation of Barcelona City Council and the Generalitat of Catalonia, promotes a choral tribute to Enric Miralles, one of the most emblematic figures of contemporary Catalan architecture. Last year was the 20th anniversary of his death.
MIRALLES is a program of exhibitions and activities that shows to the public the architect’s legacy: works in Barcelona -the city where he lived and worked-, Catalonia and worldwide. The tribute addresses the different facets of him as a multidisciplinary creator: architect, designer, photographer, and teacher.
MIRALLES activities are curated by Benedetta Tagliabue and Joan Roig and organized by the Fundació Enric Miralles with the support of the Barcelona City Council and the Generalitat of Catalonia, in collaboration with the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB), the Official College of Architects of Catalonia (COAC) and the support of Miralles Tagliabue EMBT architecture studio.
