Suite Metropolitana exhibition
From 18 October at the Espai Mercè Sala
From 18 October, the Espai Mercè Sala, located at the station of Diagonal, will be hosting an exhibition to display a selection of the projects carried out by the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB), coinciding with the celebration of the ninth edition of the architecture festival 48H Open House Barcelona.
The exhibition includes, among others, projects that can be visited during the festival in the participating municipalities such as Badalona, Santa Coloma de Gramenet, l'Hospitalet de Llobregat and Sant Joan d'Espí.
Entitled “Suite metropolitana” the aim of the exhibition is to give the general public a closer appreciation of the metropolitan space from a domestic focus, superimposing the notion of what is local and small on a regional scale.
The exhibition gathers together a collection of drawings and photographs based around the selected projects for the purpose of investigating what they signify and evoke. They reconstruct, in a fragmented way, all of the imaginative vision that made the projects possible, allowing them to be appreciated to the full at the same time as contributing new points of view. Visitors will also have access to documents related to finished projects that will provide a multi-faceted perception of the work.
The projects, grouped according to certain characteristic features -just like the different movements in a baroque suite- are organized into a series of successive spaces through the use of linked rooms. This means that the general dimensions of the images are in small format, giving the impression of them being a large collection of postcards of the projects.
