Restoration and museography for the Turó de la Rovira

The set of ruins of an antiaircraft battery from the Civil War and huts from the 60’s,  on Turó de la Rovira, one of Barcelona’s tallest hills, gave the opportunity to the Museum of History of Barcelona (MUHBA) to restore the place and offer a wonderful lookout of the city.

Our work consisted in establishing an acting procedure to restore the interior spaces and advising for the museography of the site. Every building had different uses through time: From the initial military one to a school or different stages of dwellings. The goal was to achieve a full comprehension of the different stages without losing information, highlighting in every space the most important features.
