A Lecture from the Details
Conférence publique de Miquel Reina Ortiz, cand. PhD

Urban theory has traditionally characterized the city as a “whole” composed of “parts.” This lecture challenges this relationship in the context of the Historic City, posing the idea that the “whole” is contained in the “part” through the interdetails concept. The presentation focuses on Barcelona—the first-ever named Historic City—and the study of its tile vaults. This construction technique, examined as an interdetail, connects the various intervention scales in the old ensemble and its heritage integrity. From this multi-scalar approach, this lecture presents various heritage projects such as the Sant Antoni Market adaptive reuse in Barcelona, the Canadian Parliament digital modelling in Ottawa, and the Kuñotambo Church documentation in Peru. Additionally, this approach is underlined as a fertile source for architectural education and academic research with various projects that reflect on scale, materials, sustainability, and urban conservation. Ultimately, this lecture posits that interdetails have the potentiality to become historic urban generators by telling us about the story of its making, placing, and dimensioning, but also of its conserving.

Miquel Reina Ortiz is a professor at the Master of Monuments Restoration at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya in Barcelona. He is a Ph.D. Candidate in Architecture (2015–present) at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism (ASAU) at Carleton University. His research concerns the relationship between different scales of intervention within the context of the Historic City. He has been teaching courses as Assistant Professor in heritage conservation, site and building documentation, urbanism, and design studio at the ASAU. He collaborates with the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) to develop new digital workflows for heritage documentation and conservation. He has participated in international fieldwork and co-authored articles on topics specialized in digital heritage documentation. He has collaborated with ICOMOS since 2020, first as the Canadian Representative of the Emerging Professional Working Group (EPWG) and currently as an associate member of the International Scientific Committee on Historic Cities, Towns and Villages (CIVVIH). He studied architecture at ETSABarcelona (UPC), where he graduated with honours in 2011, and holds an MsC in Restoration and Rehabilitation at ETSABarcelona (UPC). His professional experience in the architecture studio Ravetllat-Ribas Barcelona (2008–2015) focused on adaptive reuse projects, and as a licensed architect, he has designed urban projects, housing, interiors, and competitions.

Miquel Reina Ortiz est candidat au poste de professeur adjoint en architecture avec une expertise en conservation du patrimoine bâti.
