The Valley of the Fallen without Franco: the fate of the other 33,847 dead

Article  (catalan/english) by journalist Sílvia Marimom in the Catalan newspaper ARA on the future of Valle de los Caídos and Deep Space.
Barcelona, 23 October 2019

Climate City explores how digital technologies contribute to addressing climate adaptation and develops digitalization strategies that take urban sustainability into account.
Climate City focuses on digitally supported participatory climate adaptation and is committed to the idea that a digital city should be a climate-conscious city.

Hybrid Space Lab unleashed and subsequently curated a heated discourse around this utopian proposition. The combination of tabloid-friendly imagery with international expertise on greening cities and climate change proved to be a highly effective strategy.

Deep Space is a long-term investigative program initiated to deal with politics of memory, controversial space and monuments, heritage and digitalization.

How to transform and re-signify Valle de los Caídos (“Valley of the Fallen”), the Francoist monument in the Sierra de Guadarrama close to Madrid?Valle de los Caídos with its 152-meter-tall cross visible from more than 30 kilometers away and its “basilica”, a 263-meter long crypt with a 52-meter high vault cut out of the granite mountain rock, is one of the world’s most controversial monuments.

The combination of physical and media space, of local place and digital networks, is coined Hybrid Space. Space today is transformed by technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality, becoming increasingly hybrid.
With the Internet of Things (IoT) Hybrid Space is becoming ubiquitous.
Artificial Intelligence and Big Data have the ambition and potential to algorithmically manage these Hybrid Spaces.

City Making Lab provides a platform for Smart Citizens, bridging the gap between data- and city-experts and civil society and governance and addressing compelling issues at the merging of the Digital Age and the Urban Age.City Making Lab is a a co-operation between Hybrid Space Lab and Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society.The kick-off event of the City Making Lab series will take place on February 21st 2019 with a keynote lecture by Marleen Stikker, co-founder of WAAG Society and focus on City Making in the Digital Age.

As an innovative flexible transparent structure, Humboldt Volcano contrasts with the historical appearance of the introverted power-radiating reconstruction of the Berlin palace, which houses Humboldt Forum.
Humboldt Volcano, standing for a pluralistic multiculturalism, enables the appropriation of the Humboldt Forum, opening it up to the city and international public.
