An ephemeral intervention for the common spaces and the thematic areas of the Barcelona Building Construmat Professional Salon. A project where sustainability and the circular economy are the leading roles of a proposal that opts for recycling and reuse as a key concept to design seductive, unique and functional spaces.
Using just two materials, Barcelona-based architect Josep Ferrando has created singular, seductive, functional spaces that meet the criteria of circular economy. One is geotextiles, industrial fabrics with a standard format of 2.20 x 200 m, which will be reused later for their original function in roofing. The other is huge metal girders that previously served to transport the prefabricated units being used in the construction of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia and which will return to their original function when BBConstrumat closes.
