Guillem Carabí takes part in the lecture series on Josep M. Jujol in Els Pallaresos (Tarragona)
The UIC Barcelona lecturer gave a talk in which he analysed the Tarragona-born architect’s renovation of Casa Bofarull
On 10 December, lecturer Guillem Carabí took part in the lecture series “Jujol Year 140/70: Jujol and His Mark on the Tarragona Region”, organised by the Trencadís Foundation in cooperation with the Tarragona City Council.
Guillem Carabí’s presentation, which took place in the Jujol Centre in the town of Els Pallaresos and was entitled “Casa Bofarull”, gave an in-depth analysis of the 30-year renovation project (1913-1933) carried out by the Tarragona-native architect Josep Maria Jujol on this old 16th-century farmhouse. According to the lecturer at UIC Barcelona, “Jujol’s project singles out the home vertically and develops it horizontally. A double motion that intimates the surrounding landscape and provides geometry, colour and textures, inverting the natural behaviour of the materials”.
The series of events on the architect Josep Maria Jujol (Tarragona, 1879 – Barcelona, 1949) began on 1 October and will come to an end of 10 July, with a conference on the second Monday of every month. The aim of the initiative is to promote knowledge of the work done by this Tarragona-born architect, on the 140th anniversary of his birth and 70th of his death. Jujol was an architect with strong roots to the Tarragona Region, which is home to some of his most important creations, such as the Vistabella Church, Casa Bofarull and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montserrat in Montferri.
