Based on an open call for submissions, the Quaderns Observatory is a compilation of recent work and activities developed by COAC members, as well as a means to spread the latest professional activities.


(Català) Quaderns vol potenciar la difusió del treball dels col·legiats en totes les seves formes. En aquest sentit, la secció Observatori permet recollir a la versió digital de Quaderns les propostes rellevants enviades pels col·legiats.



(Català) Reprenem la nostra activitat a l’Observatori i inaugurem la secció Projectes narrats, on els autors tenen un espai per a explicar el projecte mitjançant un podcast. En aquest cas, l’equip d’arquitectes LAGULA ens explica la casa BTX



From across the road, the building appears as a solid rock built from concrete with stones projecting different scales of gray along with ash colored perforated and corrugated metal sheets, while the single story façade facing the forest is a transparent and permeable body.

For the construction of the building we use industrial processes in order to minimize the execution time and the interference with the normal development of the school. The project aims to qualify the building with the careful treatment of the natural light, the crossed ventilation and through the value given to the structural and constructive solutions used.


The space where the project was developed belongs to the foundation vault of the Forum Provincial Romà. It was a narrow space and uncomfortable for visitors who wished to contemplate the exposed pieces. The room is called La Volta de La Tecleta and it also had an accessibility handicap; the access to the room was located in a lower level than the public toilets and the only way of arriving was by a stair.
