Resumen del Libro
When Enric Miralles passed away at age 45, in 2000, he left behind these 11 buildings in various stages of design and construction scattered all over Europe–in Barcelona, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Venice, among other cities. All were under the auspices of the Enric Miralles-Benedetta Tagliabue studio, or EMBT, and this catalogue is organized and introduced by his wife and partner, Benedetta Tagliabue. She has assembled a range of valuable and almost exclusively unpublished material on the projects, extending from their gestation, documented in Miralless own unmistakable drawings and writings, to photographic records of their current progress, with some already completed and the rest well on their way. In between, readers will find photo collages, topographical maps, color swatches and project models, along with a previously unpublished text illustrated and signed by Miralles and a 30-minute DVD of a documentary directed by his friend Bigas Luna, depicting progress on the buildings in the years immediately following the architects death. EMBT: Work in Progress, records the resonant legacy of a great architect.
