The aim is to expand theoretical and practical knowledge about photography in the representation of space and architecture, starting from the approach to the work of RCR Arquitectes and the photography of Hisao Suzuki. The exercises combine reflection on the work process and its implementation from a conscious approach to space and everything that surrounds us, thus contributing to the awakening of the senses and stimulating the creation of communicative, adaptable images to the new digital formats and social media trends, and that make us experience, want to touch, listen and be in this place.

In this edition, we will deepen interdisciplinarity, integrating into the groups of the Architecture and Landscape workshops participants from the Photography and Audiovisual workshops who will contribute to their projects the ability to communicate this with suggestive images that convey atmospheres and intentions.

Exercise: Sharing

Frame: Le Volcan, la Forêt et les Architectes de Marie-France Michal-Kova and Marc Checinski

Shared creativity refers to relational processes where different fields of knowledge are integrated. It allows complex problems to be addressed from an interdisciplinary perspective. With this idea in mind we will approach the exercises of the Architecture and Landscape workshop in a transdisciplinary way, contributing from the visual arts a sensory and analytical component to the creative process. In this way, we seek participation, exchanging ideas, cooperation and mutual teamwork learning.

Exercise directed by Hisao Suzuki with the coordination and tutoring of Júlia de Balle and the assistance of Fumi Suzuki.

Shared exercise with Architecture and Landscape: The Sagrada Família in modern-day Barcelona

The construction of the Sagrada Família church, the work of Antoni Gaudí, began in 1882 and is still in progress. Gaudí proposed inserting the church into the urban fabric of the Eixample district of Barcelona by its representativeness and symbolism. This question has yet to be resolved and is included in the exercise with an approach to the mountain-sea connection to articulate a global strategy as an intervention instrument. The exercise was initiated in the last edition and will build on the results of the previous workshop.

Shared exercise with Architecture and Landscape: Management Centre of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park

The volcanic area of La Garrotxa is the best example of a volcanic landscape with exceptional landscape value in the Iberian Peninsula. The boom in tourism has led to the need to increase the management services of the natural park, which is currently spread over two sites. The Natural Park Management Centre on the Parc Nou in Olot is intended to act as a hinge between the city, the urban, and the natural park.
