The festival broadens its focus of interest, introducing new spaces in each edition that seek to investigate new typologies and that respond to changing urban environments. In Concentrico 05 the memory of industrial architecture is incorporated, with the chimeney of ​​the old Tabacalera, the Ebro river and its linear park that structures the northern part of the city, the heritage and its interpretation in a new patio under the tower of the Church of San Bartolomé, and several parking spaces of El Espolón, always in debate in the current context.

The Wooden Deck

A wooden terrace built directly on 3 vehicles on the street. In this atypical terrace, passers-by will be able to sit down, discuss, debate and imagine a new world…

3×3

The piece is closed, compact and rigorous in its form but on the contrary it is porous and transparent. It plays with the perception of the one that explores it

Living Cloister

The work, made of the seven indistinct beings, wants to be a gravestone of what we forgot, or the incipit of what we haven’t discovered yet. They are their own symbol

Passage

The performance aims to change the character of passage of this “passage” in a stationary space where to stand, sit and look, putting the value of the memory of the place
