Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design
25 April – 1 May 2024
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 nine 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 celebrates its 10th edition from 25 April to 1 May 2024 with a major transformation in which we want to visualise the future of the festival and share the learning acquired about the city by incorporating new formats, integrating audiences and meeting challenges that explore time as a factor of change in urban and social design. The calls for entries for Concéntrico 10 are now open.
Open calls for proposals
