La Borda Cooperative Building

La Borda is one of Spain’s largest wooden buildings. The low-cost cooperative building was planned by the young architectural cooperative Lacol arquitectura. As far back as 2012, Carles Baiges, one of five members of the Lacol architects’ collective, worked with a group of neighbours to organize a citizens’ initiative aimed at creating affordable, collective living space. In the meantime, La Borda has become the most prominent reference point for the new cooperative movement in Catalonia. Since residents moved into the 28 apartments in 2018, the building has won many international awards, including the Emerging Architect distinction of the Mies van der Rohe Award 2022.
