Air Autonomy Journeys
Jornadas de autonomía aérea
(With RoToR collective)


Perhaps the most interesting, undiscovered aspect of Barcelona's architecture is the rooftops of Ciutat Vella. For several months in 2004, we organised a series of expeditions open to anybody who wanted to participate, in order to explore these territories and map them.

To do this, we put out a call for points of access from specific buildings, which were granted by friends and acquaintances. From those access points, we made our way by jumping from one roof to another, checking to see the extent of the connected areas, while also mapping the areas exhaustively.

A year later, we organised the Air Autonomy Journeys to discuss proposals for the possible creative re-use of these spaces by Barcelona residents.

 

Quizás lo mas atractivo de la arquitectura Barcelonesa sean los tejados de su barrio gótico. Encima de los estrechos, densos y sombreados callejones se construye otra capa geográfica inmensa, de una extensión casi equivalente a la del barrio, habitada pero no transitable, paradojicamente mucho mas vacía. Es una explanada insólita, desconocida, privada..

Con el colectivo Rotor, hicimos una serie de expediciones para explorar los tejados del centro histórico de Barcelona. Desde distintos puntos de acceso solicitados a residentes, cartografiamos posibles rutas transitables saltando de un tejado a otro por encima de vallas, muros y separadores.

Un año después, organizamos las jornadas de AutonomiAereA para discutir posibles usos creativos y soluciones sociales para estos espacios.
