“Mass is More” is a project by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Bauhaus Earth at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona that explores the use of regenerative and decarbonizing architectural materials exposing the multi-layered processes behind the construction of the built environment.
The Mass is More project establishes a dialogue between the industrial modernity of the 20th century and the new low-emission buildings of the 21st century. The 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 during October and will be open to the general public.
