Bauhaus Campus 2021:
Addenda Architects (Roberto González, Anne Hinz, Cecilia Rodríguez, Arnau Sastre, José Zabala) is a Barcelona-based architecture practice founded in 2015, after winning the international competition for the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, which received 831 entries. Referring to some specific features of the Bauhaus building in Dessau – the glazed Curtain Wall, the two-story Bridge and the overall impression of transparency, lightness and plane surfaces – the museum embodies a manifesto of contemporary culture that could most accurately be described as ‘low resolution at its best’, a bon mot that adequately captures the precariousness of our present time, but combines it with an attitude of great optimism.
Addenda is currently working on residential, office and facilities projects for public and private clients; the motivations and expectations of our daily work are driven by the idea that architecture is an ultimate representation of sociocultural issues.
