  Enric Miralles: Architecture of Time - Quirós, MaKenzie, McMurray
It is this zig-zag way that Catalan architect Enric Miralles chose to live and explore in his architecture.
Miralles also believed that throughout an architect's career, every aspect of his personal and professional life was influential to his own projects.
Architecture, according to Miralles, is a companion of mankind through this journey, consequently it should refer not only to the space we live in, but also, to time.

 Enric Miralles EMBT-RMJM - Scottish Parliament - :: arcspace.com
The competition, won by Enric Miralles in 1998, was to select an architect to work with in developing the project, not for a finished design.
Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape, the flower paintings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the upturned boats on the seashore for the roofs, Miralles developed a design that he said was a building "sitting in the land".
Miralles was only 45 when he died, just a few month after construction started in 2000.

Consider Enric Miralles - the man who has dared to come up with a satisfyingly non-corporate, geological outcrop of a building, complete with boat-shaped roofs, the whole design reeking of determinedly primitive symbolism.
Miralles and Scotland could both gain from their liaison: for it always reflects well on a city and a country to select rising talent rather than the usual established names.

Miralles, a Catalonian architect practising in Barcelona, died, aged 45, in 2000.
Working with Scottish practice RMJM and engineers Ove Arup, Miralles developed the design of a building and landscape (the two will be inseparable) that take their cues from sources as diverse as upturned boats along the Scottish coastline to the delicate flower paintings of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Miralles was entranced by plants with names such as Sticky Catchfly, Tufted Loosestrife and Biting Stonecrop.

 A Parliamentary Debate - Edinburgh | Travel + Leisure   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Miralles died of a brain tumor in 2000 at age 45and never saw the building completed,and the Scottish official responsible for the commission—First MinisterDonald Dewar—died suddenly of a brain hemorrhage the same year, before the parliament's dedication.
To invent this, as Miralles wrote in his competition entry, "The building should be land—built out of land—to carve in the land the form of gathering of people together, not a building in a park or a garden." Impressionistic sketches submitted by Miralles show leaves and twigs arranged haphazardly as if scattered on a tabletop.
Miralles also planned landscaping around the exterior aimed at heightening the sense that the building emerges out of the earth, with grass, native plants, and wildflowers sprouting right up to the façade.

 ArchitectureWeek - News - Scottish Parliament - 2005.1102
A year later, the firm EMBT/ RMJM — a joint venture combining Enric Miralles Benedetta Tagliabue of Barcelona and the Scottish firm RMJM — was appointed to design a new complex.
His vision was a parliament building that would be "de-institutionalized, aggregated, and organic; embracing the landscape and defying all the canonical rules of architectural composition." The firm's competition entry suggested something fresh and unusual with the building depicted in a collage of leaves and sticks.

 The Scottish Parliament Edinburgh by Enric Miralles
Abstract shapes of Miralles’ invention continue the democratic theme, representing “whatever you want them to be”, as the tour guide tells us repeatedly.
The most ubiquitous and characteristic shape is used at scale on the building façade to shade the windows, and in miniature inside in the perforated grilles of the air conditioning vents.
Conjured up by the Catalan magus Enric Miralles, it is a heady, hedonistic brew that distils aspects of Kahn, Aalto, Mackintosh and Gaudi and infuses them with Scottish history and myth, geography and geology.

 Tropolism: Tropolism Books: Enric Miralles Works and Projects 1975-1995
Enric Miralles' death in 2000 was a shock, and unexpected loss, a shift.
Because even ambitious practicing architects do not get several large building commissions until they are at least 60, particularly in New York, it is fortunate that Miralles was able to build several very large and very experimental buildings in his lifetime.
This book is almost entirely photography and line drawings, and is one of the last books, in my collection at least, that draws specific connections between drawing and photographic representations of the built work, connections central to the architect's concerns.

The most colorful work in the exhibition is the Santa Caterina Market in Barcelona where Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT Miralles Tagliabue Arquitects Associats created a huge, undulating canopy for an existing, neo-classical-style market building in a large square in 2005.
Guallart's own plot seeks to maximize shared resources and his 16-story Sharing Tower appears, according to the catalogue, "as a striated stack of discs, each with widened central corridors that will house common space." "Adjacent to the tower, the building has arms that hug a central courtyard and contain the complex's other programs," it continued.

 The Stunning Architecture of Spain
Miralles, who died in 2000 when he was only 44, learned an important lesson from the magus of Santa Monica: Take risks.
When he succeeded, as with ­­­the Igualada Cemetery Park in Barcelona (designed with Carme Pinós), the result was sublime, and even when he did not, as with his last project, the flawed new Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh (designed with Benedetta Tagliabue and RMJM), the effort was nevertheless audacious.
Miralles and Tagliabue are represented in the MoMA show by a rather forbidding office complex in Barcelona, and by the Santa Caterina Market in an old quarter of the same city (at right).
