The Fundacio Enric Miralles is a center for the experimentation of contemporary architecture and is conceived of as a platform for the promotion of knowledge. The foundation also seeks to continue the legacy of the methods and philosophies of doing and thinking established by the late architect Enric Miralles. In addition to housing the archive of Enric Miralles, the Foundation is an open space in which the legacy of Enric’s work can continue to inspire new generations of architects to experiment and explore. Architects and students are invited to participate in residence programs, workshops, courses, conferences, lectures, and international exchanges at the Foundation.
The headquarters of the Foundation is located in Barcelona in the same building houses the Miralles Tagliabue EMBT architectural studio. The 500 m2 space of the foundation holds all project documentation and the complete archives of Enric Miralles. Additionally, the Foundation will have different exhibitions that will show work from the archive, collection of original models, and a space for temporary activities.
