TERRITORIS DE RECERCA
HiperCatalunya is a territorial analysis and research project promoted by the Government of Catalonia, directed by Metàpolis and undertaken at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IaaC). In an advanced prospecting of today¹s territory, HiperCatalunya seeks to import tomorrow¹s potentials to interrogate the territory to bring out its capacities and latencies. Beyond the traditional mechanisms of territorial analysis, this group endeavour attempts to identify and express a multidisciplinary approach to our environment, encouraging interpretations open to potential interaction between the existing and the imaginable, in accordance with an innovative dimension of contemporary culture tending of foster new spaces for new ways of life, but also new logics and new aesthetics for new escenarios of progress.[ic_end_intro]
With this purpose in mind, the work carried out has generated a wide range of research projects and materials intended for the understanding of specialists and the general public alike. HiperCatalunya is a reflection, and seeks to stimulate reflection, on the true territorial dimension of Catalonia, establishing through theoretical and practical approaches four main realms of analysis, reflection and proposal, understood as operative frameworks as well as strategic layers of action, aimed at anticipating and visualizing possible key questions in the future development of the territory.
