In the framework of the section “Transformed spaces” and starting from the exploration of the light possibilities, “Llacuna” praises the swampy past of the Poblenou neighborhood. With this objective, among modern office buildings and rehabilitated industrial buildings, users will enter into a lighting scene that evokes the atmosphere of the original lagoon, erasing the urbanized soil.
The project won the diploma for the best transformed space of the Festival Llum BCN 2018. The jury highlighted its ability to “modify the space and its physical configuration from the use of light and lighting, and the ability to propose a new urban experience to the public based on the design of the project and its interaction with the site”. The project tutored by María de la Cámara y Gabriel Paré de cube.bz and the directors Roger Paez and Toni Montes, aimed to recall the swampy past of the Poblenou neighbourhood, generating the effect of dissolving urbanized soil with a dense layer of light that simulates a liquid and corporeal surface.
