Conference Countdown
Between now and the Iconic Houses Conference on November 25, we are featuring a key figure from the event in a special weekly series of Five Questions. This week: Rossend Casanova, product design curator of the new Museu del Disseny de Barcelona (Design Museum Barcelona).
Five questions for Rossend Casanova
In this edition of our Five Questions series, we interview Rossend Casanova, curator at the Design Museum Barcelona, where he oversees the product design collection. On of his most recent and rewarding activities was the project to restore one of the rationalist 1930s Casa Bloc apartments in order to make it a museum.
