Sant Pau Research Institute – Barcelona

Project Info

Architect PICHarchitects Pich-Aguilera and 2BMFG Arquitectos.

Project Description

More than 45,000 ceramic pieces make up the Flexbrick® ceramic fabric enveloping the new building of the Sant Pau Research Institute in Barcelona

The ceramic pieces, with their glazed finish, achieve a perfect integration in the modernist style of the historic site of Sant Pau Hospital and also help the building to obtain maximum energy savings and minimize its environmental impact. The building, with its clear contemporary vocation, has been designed by the Barcelona firms PICHarchitects Pich-Aguilera and 2BMFG Arquitectos.
