'Jujol Arquitecte' exhibition
As part of the events associated with World Architecture Day, the exhibition entitled 'Jujol Arquitecte' opened on Monday, 6 October, at 7 pm in the mezzanine of the COAC. The exhibition features an exceptional selection of Jujol’s plans and original drawings from the COAC’s Historical Archive as well as others lent by the Jujol Archives, representing some of the architect’s most interesting work.
The exhibition is very educational, providing an overview of Jujol’s work in the form of 25 mobile panels. It also showcases his better-known plans and original drawings such as Casa Negre and Torre de la Creu in Sant Joan Despí and Casa Planells and the monumental fountain in Plaça d’Espanya in Barcelona, alongside other less well-known work such as the stained-glass windows that Jujol created for the church of Vistabella and the drawings for Casa Bofarull in Els Pallaresos, rounding off a rich and extensive overview of his important professional work.
‘Jujol Arquitecte’ is the first in a series of exhibitions featuring material held in the Historical Archive, revealing the rich documentary heritage of the COAC. It can be visited in the COAC’s mezzanine from 7 to 30 October 2014.
