This itinerary through Girona and Barcelona regions brings us closer to a different way of understanding architecture and interventions in the landscape. With the work of the local studio RCR (Aranda, Pigem and Vilalta) as the common thread, we will make a trip that will take us to Olot and Palamós.
Participants will have the opportunity to have contact with renowned professionals of local architectural studies, as well as visit the university and understand how practice and theory of architecture and urbanism in Spain works.
The landscape of the Garrotxa has a characteristic aspect due to its volcanic origin and beech forests that have served as inspiration for painters like Vayreda. The architecture also interprets and redefines the landscape of La Garrotxa with respectful interventions with the natural environment. Architectures that, in contrast to the place, intensify their essence.
For 5 days we will immerse ourselves in the landscape of La Garrotxa without forgetting, of course, the local cuisine, which also helps us to understand its history.
Meeting with the architect guide of Artchitectours.
