Current Work is a lecture series featuring leading figures in the worlds of architecture, urbanism, design, and art.
The fall 2022 Current Work series examines projects and firms enacting new modes of architectural practice, collaboration, and community engagement.
Lacol is an architectural cooperative established in 2009 in the Barcelona neighborhood of Sants. The group works to generate community infrastructures through architecture, cooperativism, and user participation. Focused on improving the quality of urban life, Lacol encourages debate on the management of urban spaces and the recovery of local heritage.
In the words of the RIBA Journal, Lacol’s work “is proof that another way is possible; where disempowered communities can be galvanized, that land deemed out of reach can be secured, and that cooperation by all at the most fundamental levels can—when guided by architects—realize great design.”
