Elisava Degree Show 2022. Bloc a Bloc

27 Jun 22 — 30 Jun 22

Elisava’s Degree Show will bring together nearly 200 Final Degree Projects of the students of the Degree in Design and the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering.

For the first time, the Degree Show moves to an external space, a large industrial building in the neighborhood of Sant Martí, promoting Elisava’s Distributed School project. In this edition, the projects have been organized following the thematic areas of the Elisava Portfolio, which integrate transversal issues of design and engineering as a way to investigate and generate knowledge.

Students investigate, explore and act from their internal attitudes and positions, interacting with tutors and mentors, and promoting a significant impact on the context.

The Elisava Portfolio themes are in connection with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the European Union’s New European Bauhaus platform, promoting a clear positioning of the Elisava community:

  • Emotional Well-being
  • Phygital for Communication & Empathy
  • Creative Activism
  • Circular and Active Materials
  • Rethinking Fabrication
  • Hybrid Crafts
  • Design informed Forecasting
  • Design Culture, Ethics and Inclusivity
  • Social Cohesion and New Behaviours

In the exhibition we will be able to see Final Degree Projects in collaboration with companies, NGOs, research centers, associations, collectives, institutions, Elisava Research and also personal projects.

The graphic identity, the exhibition design, the interaction of space and lighting have been worked entirely by a multidisciplinary team of students in the 3rd year of the Degree in Design. In addition, the students of the Mention in Graphic Design have created ad hoc the typography “Me fecit” based on the banner made by Elisava, a pioneer Catalan artist (c.1100 – c.1122).

Under the slogan ‘Bloc a Bloc’, they propose to show the last step of the undergraduate students in Elisava, their Final Degree Project. In addition, 6,000 cement blocks will be used to compose the exhibition design, which the 4th year students will use to build their spaces, divided into the previous 9 areas. In addition, from Elisava’s Master’s Degree in Design and Communication they have composed this soundtrack specially for the Degree Show.
