Historical Eina, University Centre of Design and Art of Barcelona


Miquel Espinet, director of Eina, asked us to find the format and location of the school’s historical archive so that it could be exhibited at the new headquarters of Casa Sentmenat.

The proposal went on to place a repetitive module of aluminium frames with the annual documentation in each module and hung gradually, to the two transverse walls, which traversing the two transparent slabs to the central nave between the two towers topping the building.

To give value and knowledge with the presentation of the historical archive of the school, from its beginnings to the present day, it is not a closed archive but one that is being built up year after year.
