What can you do at Barcelona Architecture Week?
Architecture Week is being held in Barcelona until 16 May in a hybrid format, both in person and online. Make the most of it and enjoy the activities they have programmed, related to the world of architecture and the city.
The event began in 2017 with the aim of strengthening the link between architecture and the general public, encouraging the exchange of opinions and providing innovative views on the architectural field and its future scenarios.
This year, it is indeed possible to celebrate the fifth edition of the architecture week, the format on this occasion is hybrid, combining both online and on-site.
One of the main novelties of this fifth edition is the premiere of the International Architecture Film Festival of Barcelona, which will take place in person at the Girona Cinemas, and online through the Filmen platform.
The event will show in an innovative way current issues related to architecture such as urban activism, politics, economics, the environment, cultural and social diversity, access to housing and equal rights among people.
