SALÓ DEL TINELL
At the Saló del Tinell is exhibited MIRALLES. A quarts de quatre… a vision of Enric Miralles as an architect, focused on four built projects and benchmarks of modern European architecture, and which also represent a milestone in his life.
The Igualada Park Cemetery (1985-1991…) is his “inaugural” work and embodies the work with the topography of the place; the Basketball Pavilion in Huesca (1994) was chosen to be one of the first big buildings of his career and because its roofs, stands out as an architectural element; the Santa Caterina Market (1997) is the most linked to Barcelona, it is a project that acts with the heart of the city and the neighborhood, and in which the architect establishes respect and dialogue with the history of the place.
Finally, the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh (2004) was chosen as Miralles’s masterpiece that captures all of his architectural experience and practice and was probably his greatest challenge.
Each project, at the time it was built, represented a major milestone in the evolution of its architecture, and the four together make up the essence of his work. In the exhibition, together with Enric’s most personal documents, sketches, drawings, models, and photographs are shown, with the intention of making them accessible to the general public to whom, fundamentally, this exhibition is directed.
The exhibition MIRALLES. A quarts de quatre… is part of the MIRALLES events, promoted by the Fundació Enric Miralles with the support of the Barcelona City Council and the Generalitat de Catalunya through their Departments of Presidency, Culture and Territory and Sustainability, in collaboration with l’Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura (ETSAB), the Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC) and the architecture studio Miralles Tagliabue EMBT, in order to honor the figure of the Catalan architect Enric Miralles in his many facets as creator, and whose death was 20 years old in 2020.
