The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is delighted to invite you to the Closing Event of R.E.S.P.I.R.A, a winning project of the Ciutat Proactiva call from the Bit-Habitat Foundation and developed collaboratively by IAAC, Noumena, the Association of Neighbors and Residents of Poblenou, and the Platform of Roquetes Entities. Participate in the conclusion of the project that will take place on December 15th at 12 pm at Public Hort Benet Corner.


After the successful presentation of the project at the Convent of Sant Agusti, RESPIRA will be installed at its final location, the hort at Benet Corner.

RESPIRA is an innovative project that co-designed urban elements with the residents of the Roquetes, Poblenou, and Born neighborhoods. These elements aim to address contemporary challenges in public spaces, including the creation of new pedestrian areas and Superblocks (Superillas), responses to post-pandemic requirements and remote work, and a focus on inclusion, gender perspectives, as well as addressing issues related to heatwaves and climate shelters. The co-designed urban elements were 3D printed using Pure.Tech, a material that absorbs and neutralizes CO2, NOx compounds, and VOCs, contributing to improved air quality.

Join us for a final gathering.

RESPIRA is a project developed by IAAC, Noumena, La Associació de Veïns i Veïnes del Poblenou, La Plataforma d’Entitats de Roquetes, with support from the BitHabitat Foundation. Registration is free and open to all invited organizations. The event will be held in Spanish.
