THE COAC IN CATALONIA
The structure of the Architects’ Association of Catalonia is tailored to the regional complexity of Catalonia, providing a service for architects and society as a whole through its five areas—Barcelona, Girona, Tarragona, Lleida and Ebre—and a series of regional branches and offices, helping to contribute towards social action and services in their immediate area.
This means that the almost 10,000 Association members across the whole of Catalonia have easier access to the Association and, in turn, the Association can offer its social and cultural services to the whole region. In response to the primary mission of the Architects’ Association of Catalonia, which is to uphold the social value of architecture and town and country planning on behalf of both society and architects, the immediacy that these regional branches provide means it can get involved in the numerous transformations taking place in Catalonia; reaching from the great metropolis of Barcelona to the provincial capitals of Girona, Tarragona and Lleida and out to smaller towns and villages.
Thanks to this network of branches across the whole country, the task of upholding the practice and profession of architecture has become the backbone of the collective, providing solutions to each and every individual need.
