The chamfer of the Sagrada Familia School in Barcelona (on the corner of Sardenya and Còrsega) featured the VORA ephemeral furniture prototype, a project that sought to consolidate the space gained on the road in times of the pandemic.
Conceived and digitally manufactured by students of the Master in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces and the Elisava Prototype Workshop with the support of the Barcelona City Council and the Sagrada Familia School, VORA constitutes a safe boundary between cars and users of the new pedestrianized spaces to promote leisure, educational and cultural activities.
VORA is part of FURNISH, an initiative promoted and financed by the European Union (EIT-Urban Mobility) in which seven teams from five cities across Europe participate. The current 15-day trial period will serve to improve the design and be able to share it across the continent.
Design: MEATS Elisava
Construction: Nicolás Olmos, Noel Diaz, Juan Carlos Ines + Elisava students
