Sustainable Architecture: the Restoration of Sant Pau

Thursday 14 May - 18:00Setmana d'Arquitectura 2020

The chief architect of the Art Nouveau Site, Mónica Asenjo, will be giving an online talk about Sant Pau’s sustainable architecture as part of Architecture Week, organized by the COAC.

When healthcare activity was transferred to the new Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, in 2009, work began on a major process of rehabilitation of its Modernista pavilions. Restauration work was guided by criteria of sustainability: the use of geothermal energy, the application of energy efficiency measures, materials from renewable sources, etc. This effort has received recognition in the form of seven LEED ratings.
