Renovations have begun on the Plaça Nova headquarters
The renovations of the facade on the Architects’ Association headquarters in Plaça Nova have begun. Given the significant heritage value of the Association’s headquarters, the intervention is very conscientious, substantially improving the building’s characteristics.
As of this March, the Architects’ Association represents 10,000 architect members, a number that was only reached for short periods in 2008 and 2011 when the momentum of the economic growth of the early 2000s was still carrying over.
In later periods, requests for new membership reached a standstill and even fell, at some points, although only marginally, since the number of members never dropped below 9,500. Following that phase, in recent years the trend toward growth has been reinstated: last year a total of 401 architects joined the Association.
