Excursions

The site excursions to works by RCR Arquitectes, guided by the architects themselves, draw the participants closer to their way of creating places and a vision of Architecture condensed into seven concepts:

Mediation with Landscape
Break the dichotomy landscape and architecture.
Space
Create a sequential and cinematic space, treated in a unique way.
Presence of Time
Capture, show and treasure the presence of time in space thanks to the interaction caused between light and materials chosen, as well as by the material itself.
Public and Social Function
Interrelate the existential and community character of the spaces with their functions.
Structure and Materiality
Create close, tactile and perceptible spaces since the essence of each intervention are matter and materials.
System
Understand the set of features suggested by the work and rebuild a system.
Dematerialization
Blurring the physical and perceptive limits to create spaces in symbiosis with Nature.

The site visits give the opportunity to experience and understand on-site and firsthand how RCR Arquitectes give answers to the place and the program in each of their works. This parallel activity is thought to be a theoretical and practical complement to the exercises of the Workshop of Architecture and Landscape and gives both workshops of Audiovisual and Photography and Scenography the opportunity to have an approach to the architecture of RCR Arquitectes.
