The art circuit in Barcelona

Circuit d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona is a network of galleries, museums and contemporary art centers which, with the collaboration of the Barcelona’s City Council and the Department of Culture of the Generalitat have created a circuit that brings art closer to the citizen. More than 45 points that form the circuit have been identified with two code colors, represented like: the pink to the galleries and the blue to a foundation or an art center. 

Taula de Disseny designed the support, both graphically and industrially. This urban element has been built in a metallic mast crowned by a capsule where the code color appears. The mast allows the citizen to obtain information about the programming of the spaces and to connect, through their Smartphone using a QR code, all the information of the Barcelona Contactless platform.

The realization of this piece was for our company a major challenge in industrial terms, this piece is in the middle of the city, anchored and built on the pavement but with a very interesting "attraction" for the collectors of signs. The capsules that crown the mast, although that have been constructed to proof of vandals, reinforced and welded in its interior, have been an object of desire in more than one occasion, being torn and destroyed. This situation of constant exposure to vandalism has been changed by redesigning the crown of the mast with a new industrial solution that solves the problem.
