Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design
2 – 5 September 2021
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 festival has brought together in its five editions 73 urban installations, 42 exhibitions and talks, created by teams of national and international architects and designers who experiment 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.
The seventh edition took place from 2 to 5 September 2021 in Logroño. The calls for entries for the design of the pavilion and two interventions received a total of 630 projects from more than 50 countries.
