Architects' Association of Catalonia

The building of the Architects' Association, the Col·legi d'Arquitectes de Barcelona

The most striking element is the series of sand-cast friezes around the façade, designed by Pablo Picasso and produced by the Norwegian Carl Nesjar: the "children's frieze", on the façade overlooking Carrer dels Arcs, the "giants' frieze", on the façade in the Plaça Nova, and the "frieze of the Catalan flag", on the façade overlooking Carrer Capellans.

The Architects’ Association of Catalonia (COAC) is an organization with a history dating back more than 80 years during which it has established itself in our society as a benchmark for architecture, enjoying both national and international prestige.
