Mediterranean Critical Regionalism

Comas, Sara Coscarelli;


The study of Barcelona’s architectural context, that adopts its modus operandi from the Milanese’s architectural imaginary1, between 1949 and 1964, is substantially characterized by the desire to recoverthe lost history - lost with the Franco’s dictatorship -, the connection of the individual with its innermost self and the consciousness of belonging to the Mediterranean context, without forgetting, however, the progressive and emancipative tenets of the Modern Movement. The vicissitudes of adaptation carried out by Catalan architects, especially Group R, while admiring their Milanese counterparts Ernesto Nathan Rogers, Ignazio Gardella and Franco Albini, among others, always around the contents of the magazine Casabella- Continuità, leads to the expression of a genre that is specific to this region: Mediterranean Critical Regionalism, as an assimilation from the Kenneth Frampton’s Critical Regionalism.
