The construction of such an entity is only possible through the recognition and representation of a set of shared values and a common political agenda. Reflecting on the relationship between the EU institutions and architecture is a fundamental step in the quest for such values. Only a critical approach to such matters can result in a project of significant collective value. In fact, the so called “Iconographic deficit”2 of the EU is partly due to the lack of a clear and bold project that engages with space, architecture and monuments. The EUPavilion project aims to raise awareness of the public on these issues, by means of design. 1 Vittorio Gregotti, Arcipelago Europa, 1998 2 OMA, Content, 2004 EUPavilion is a project by Anna Livia Friel (IUAV phd), Benjamin Gallegos Gabilondo and Marco Provinciali (Supervoid Architects) __________________________________
