Ca Rull Upcycling a tannery

Ca Rull is a former tannery that has been abandoned for more than ten years. Its structure is still in good condition. Its owners want to bring new life into it. We explore how a research center around the calçotada could work.

Search questions

As a consequence of our search as architects, we also produce understanding and knowledge made of words -written and spoken. This search revolves around twelve constant themes, questions we don’t have a definitive answer to yet. This knowledge is not just a by-product of our activity, but rather an instrumental part that develops simultaneously and is imbricated in building. Search Questions is our sisyphean effort to organize and share this knowledge while it's blossoming, fragile and unstable. By doing so, a more specific understanding, and more refined questions emerge.
