The architecture of the exhibition space designed by Olga Subirós “offers a large-format, immersive experience that brings visitors closer to three aspects of air pollution”. 300.000 km/s will present the results of a project to create new cartographies of the city of Barcelona and of Catalonia, based on an examination of architectural, urbanistic, atmospheric, and health data. The cartographies were created using a vast range of information, from the European Space Agency (ESA) data to numerical models established by various public and private research groups in Catalonia.
