Barcelona: between Memory and Prophecy 2016-2017

  The NYIT School of Architecture, with collaboration and research materials from MUHBA, and resident studio space at the Universidad Internacional de Catalunya (UIC), conducted a studio to generate strategies and ideas relating to urban territory and heritage.
The project site, within the historic center of Barcelona, sits also within a neighborhood of strong local character and a community that exists apart from, but geographically very near to main tourist centers of the city.

The challenge was to create facilities where both communities – the local residents, many of whom are recent immigrants and the tourists – may better understand Barcelona’s past and present while affirming a future that is sustainable for both.
