Abstract:

The decision of the local authorities of the city of Barcelona to engage world-famous architect Richard Meier to design a museum for which no collection existed was – and still is – controversial. However, the building itself has already helped transform the urban fabric of the city and has attracted an unprecedented number of visitors. Mihail Moldeveanu, a freelance photographer and writer based in Paris, recounts the story of how architecture was used to glorify the concept of the museum and spark the renewal of a neighbourhood.
