Olot-based architecture firm, RCR Arquitectes, is all over town at the moment with exhibitions showing at both Palau Robert and Centre d’Art Santa Mònica—two complementary exhibitions that together portray the unique architecture of RCR and a lifetime of dedication to it.
‘RCR Arquitectes. Creatividad compartida’ at Palau Robert is a retrospective exhibition that presents a succinct, yet comprehensive summary of the studio, which was established in 1987 by Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta and is particularly well-known for a deep understanding of the relationship between architecture and landscape. This impressive body of work is communicated via mixed media, from abstract watercolour paintings to beautifully executed drawings and models, and even life-size fragments of completed works, many of which you may recognise.
The second exhibition, ‘RCR Arquitectes: Papers’ (Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, May 19th-Sept 13th), focuses more on how the architects work and their creative processes, rather than completed buildings, using drawings, sketches and assemblages. It also includes an audiovisual display by Isaki Lacuesta produced in collaboration with the studio.
