“Mass is More” Opening in Barcelona

bauhaus earth

“Mass is More”, a project created by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Bauhaus Earth, is opening on October 4, 2022, at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona. 

The installation explores the use of regenerative and decarbonizing architectural materials in contemporary buildings. By reconsidering the materials being used in the original pavilion, this new installation reflects on how to regenerate our cities through the use of low-emission practices in order to achieve the EU’s environmental targets for 2050. 

“Mass is More” is funded by Built by Nature and will host the launch of the Spanish mass timber building network Mass Madera. It is part of the events of the European Forest City 2022 in Barcelona, organized by the European Forest Institute, with the support of the Metropolitan Area and the Barcelona City Council.  

The project will be open to the public until October 9, 2022, at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, Av. Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 7, 08038 Barcelona, Spain.
