Information Point in Glorias Square, Barcelona. A Scaffolding System for a Temporary Facility

Information Point

In response to both the temporality of the facility and the context where is located, Peris+Toral stands up for a detachable and reusable construction that minimizes the trace on the territory: a scaffolding system as structure and formal solution of the project.

Information Point

This temporary facility built a year ago by the Catalan practice Peris+Toral, is part of the provisional urbanization of the Glòries Square in Barcelona. With this project, the studio reasserts a new way of working and enhances its search for new solutions and constructive processes.

Information Point

The facility is thought to be an information point, an exhibition area about the proposed project of the square and rental point of electric bicycles. Is located in a crossroads of pedestrian circulations; which crosses the square towards the sea-mountain and another which transversely connects the two nearby facilities: nursery oaks and the new pergola.

In its temporary condition, the construction is subtly integrated into the transformational environment of Glòries Square. Its linear shape, materials and its structural system highlight both their ephemeral character and the idea of permeability.

Along these lines, scaffolding acts as a support of the three envelopes necessary to provide habitability to the construction: an impermeable and translucent polycarbonate skin, a shade mesh and a metal mesh as a protection. The areas which host the internal program and services are solved by two structural prefabricated modules of
site hut, whereas wood on the pavement and on the transverse thresholds provide warmer areas in the facility.
