At 15:30 on October 19th, the Italian Pavilion hosts a meeting between its curator Mario Cucinella MCA and architectural studios Batlle i Roig Arquitectes of Spain and Harari Landscape Architecture of Mexico. The round table promoted by the Iris Ceramica Group will focus on the theme of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia 2018 FREESPACE.
The new Can Bisa is the result of a delicate restoration project on a nineteenth-century villa and an abandoned area converted into homes by Catalonian studio Batlle i Roig in Vilassar de Mar, near Barcelona.
Batlle i Roig worked from 2003 to redevelop the waste landfill site in the Vall d'en Joan, in the El Garraf Nature Reserve to the North-East of Barcelona. In Batlle i Roig’s project the artificial orography combines with the natural landscape to create a public park.
In the wake of their experience with Inditex’s Massimo Dutti and Pull & Bear brands, Catalonian studio Batlle I Roig has designed the new Stradivarius headquarters in northern Barcelona. Enric Batlle and Joan Roig have built a construction on stilts that solves the parking problem.
