Igualada Cemetery – Barcelona, Spain

leave a comment »



Building: Igualada Cemetery
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Architect: Enric Miralles
Construction Start: 1984
Building Completion: 1994

AE Interests: Built in an industrial area where most of the land had been dug out for quarries, Miralles tucked the tiered layout into the stone hills. The cemetery was built of reinforced concrete to reflect the industrial surroundings. There are many examples where the reinforcements are exposed, creating bold, rusting lines  repeating throughout the form. The cemetery also houses a chapel and monastery that have yet to be completed.
