La Escocesa Factory – Amadeu Santacana, Architect
Design Studio Lecture Series – 09/14/2015

Amadeu Santacana is principal in NUG, architectural practice located in Barcelona. In 2009 NUG won a competition to create a new Fabriques de Creació de Barcelona in the industrial complex of La Escocesa. He explains La Escocesa´s complex and layered history and urban context; concluding in the explanation of NUG’s emphasis in the importance of the actions that take place in the space over the visuals by approaching the project through 5 main strategies: 1. Bringing Bolivia Ave through la Escocesa. 2. Disconnect and free the industrial envelope from its program. 3. Making narrative cuts through the building. 4. Inserting systems that activate but not define the space.
