The “Mass is More” project, designed by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Bauhaus Earth, establishes a dialogue between the industrial modernity of the 20th century and the new low-emission buildings of the 21st century.

This event serves as a stage for the launch of MASS MADERA, a national network of pioneers whose main mission is to facilitate and promote the construction of green buildings, and work towards the decarbonization of architecture.

Through various interventions, the installation shows how the use of wood and other regenerative materials can help reduce the high CO2 emissions that are associated with the construction industry.

This installation will be hosted in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona from October 1 to 9, and will be open to the general public.

This installation opens during the same week as the EFI Annual Conference that is being held in Barcelona, the European Forest City 2022. This initiative was organized by the EFI in partnership with the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB)Barcelona City CouncilBarcelona Provincial Council, the Generalitat de Catalunya and research centres – IAACCTFCCREAF and the Parc de Belloch.
