Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design
Concéntrico 09, 27 de abril – 2 de mayo 2023
Concéntrico is the Logroño (Spain) International Festival of Architecture and Design that annually proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city. The Festival invites visitors to tour the city through installations, exhibitions, meetings, activities and performances that create a connection between the venues, squares, streets, courtyards and hidden spaces that usually go unnoticed in their daily lives.
Since 2015, the eight editions of the festival have brought together more than 100 urban interventions created by teams of national and international architects and designers experimenting with new fields of environmental design. In this way, a dialogue is established between the city, heritage and contemporary architecture that activates citizens’ reflection on these spaces.
Concéntrico 09 will be held from 27 April to 2 May 2023. The festival opened the competitions for three interventions in the ninth edition and a call for participatory practices with the Cities Ahead programme. Find out the results on 1 February.
