Ignasi de Solà-Morales

Ignasi de Solà-Morales Rubió (Barcelona 1942 - Amsterdam 2001) was a Catalan architect, historian and philosopher.[1]

He was professor of composition at the Barcelona School of Architecture, and also taught at the universities of Princeton, Columbia, Turin, and Cambridge.[2]

Among his most notable architectural works are the reconstruction of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion, and the reconstruction and expansion of the Liceu Theatre in Barcelona.[2]

Ignasi de Solà-Morales has coined the term "terrain vague", applied to abandoned, obsolete and unproductive areas, with no clear definitions and limits.[2]
