© Isaki Lacuesta. “Aftermath_ Catalonia in Venice. Architecture beyond architects”

Unprecedented success of Catalan architects at La Biennale di Venezia

This year's Biennale is a clear sign that Catalan architecture is triumphing abroad. More than thirty Catalan firms are present at Venice's 15th Mostra Internazionale di Architettura, either showing their work as part of the 'Unfinished' exhibition in the Spanish Pavilion (where 40% of the architecture firms are Catalan), or taking part in the exhibition 'Aftermath_Architecture beyond architects', representing Catalonia at the Eventi Collaterali.

Moreover, this year the Golden Lion for the best national pavilion has been awarded to Spain, thus distinguishing the group of 55 emerging architects, 23 of which are Catalan, and highlighting their creativity and commitment to transcending the limitations of the economic crisis

Without a doubt, the Jury's decision will have been particularly influenced by the experience of Catalan architects in the task of rehabilitating and transforming cities. To all this, we should add that the Biennale's director, the Chilean Alejandro Aravena (winner of the last Pritzker Architecture Prize), selected four Catalan practices for the Biennale's International Architecture Exhibition, ‘Reporting from the Front’: Enric Batlle and Joan Roig; Eduardo Cadaval and Clara Solà-Morales; Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga; and Toni Gironès.

Meanwhile, the project ’Aftermath_Architecture beyond architects’, curated by Catalan architects Jaume Prat and Jelena Prokopljević along with filmmaker Isaki Lacuesta, highlights seven public architectural interventions chosen as examples of architecture that improves the relationship between users and their surroundings. The Catalan project has generated considerable interest and critical acclaim and is one of the 30 projects recommended by the Wallpaper magazine.

The COAC would like to congratulate all the Catalan architects taking part for the recognition they have achieved as a result of their professional efforts. At the same time, it wishes to highlight how contemporary Catalan architecture has managed to deal with this far-reaching crisis by exploring new ways of meeting society's needs. Venice has welcomed them as leaders in their field precisely because of this demonstration of sensibility and skill. There is, however, still some way to go: our business network and sector have been so devastated that decisive government support is still needed.
