RCR. Dream and Nature
Catalonia in Venice / 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia 2018
Nature and history is the physical place that has been chosen to develop a space by RCR Arquitectes to conceive and experiment and to rethink man’s relationship with the world. This physical space is located in the La Vila estate, in the Bianya Valley (Catalonia), surrounded by woods, water, farmland, country houses, etc. In this environment, research is not defined as an isolated phenomenon, but rather as having a direct relationship with what is being explored. It’s a creative, experimental project, and one that is constantly evolving. Technological advances and innovation are applied on an experiential basis in this landscape. New realities are generated, like the humanitacle, a project about the synthesis of man and the built habitat in relation to the surroundings, nature and technology, and la dona i l’home núvol (cloud woman and cloud man), creative beings par excellence and creators of reality. Book introduces this utopia under construction.
