New Dates for Concéntrico 06

3 – 6 September 2020

Programming advance

Concentrico is Logroño’s International Festival of Architecture and Design that proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city. The new edition, Concéntrico 06, will be held from 3 to 6 September 2020.

The Festival invites visitors to tour the city through installations, exhibitions, meetings, activities and performances that create a connection between the 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 59 urban installations 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.

Studies such as Picado de Blas (Madrid), MAIO (Barcelona), Branco Del Rio (Coimbra), Boamistura (Madrid), Guillermo Santomà (Barcelona), Fernando Abellanas (Valencia), Plastique Fantastique (Berlin), Jorge Penadés (Málaga), David Bestué (Barcelona), Mjölk (Prague), TAKK, (Barcelona) have made interventions in the previous editions of the festival and join the more than 14 installations that will be made this year by:

Gregor Schneider, Germany / Iza Rutkowska, Poland / Storey Studio, United Kingdom / Jordi Gali con Jérémy Paon y Julien Quartier, France / KOGAA, Czech Republic / Mecanismo, España / Taneli Mansikkamäki, Finland / Attila Kim + Bogdan Ciocodeica, Romania / Anna & Eugeni Bach, Spain

Winners of the calls / Ignacio Hornillos + Javier Fernández, Spain / Silvia Bachetti + Agnese Casadio, Germany – Italy / Alejandro Ramírez, Mexico

Guest schools / Escuela Superior de Diseño de La Rioja, Spain / Escuela de Arquitectura de Toledo, Spain

The exhibitions have extended the focus to new international contexts, as with the retrospective exhibition of the Mies van der Rohe Foundation on the interventions carried out in the Barcelona Pavilion, the Czech architect Martin Rajniš or Architectus Omnibus.

In 2020 we explore architecture and its natural cycles with Reverberations by Centrala and Fundacja Bec Zmiana in an exhibition that began in the Polish pavilion of La Biennale di Venezia; the design of the Finnish Tuomas Kuure; or the associated exhibitions in Museo Würth La Rioja or Sala Amós Salvador on architecture in Spanish Art and urban art.

The programme is completed in each edition with workshops, performances and conferences, with the support of Acción Cultural Española. Meetings and conversations with professionals from different countries on curating, research and teaching with participants from countries such as France, Germany, Dubai, USA and Chile.

Circo aéreo

An itinerant installation that explores the underutilized potential of empty urban spaces and their alternative functions. The object reactivates these places by providing a stage and a place to rest.

KOGAA
Parking – Mayor Street
Installation

Courtyard of Reflections

An installation that reflects on the sensory power of nature in the built environment. An aromatic garden is formed with seasonal plants to establish new sensory and visual relationships.

Storey Studio
Plaza San Bartolomé
Installation

Fiesta

A large platform floats on the pavement of the square like a big picnic blanket. The installation is a symbolic gesture that brings together all the members of Logroño’s multicultural community in a party.

Attila KIM & Bogdan CIOCODEICA
Plaza del Revellín
Installation

Banquín

A big rocking bench. A space in the city, dynamic and adaptable that can generate, thanks to its dimension and movement, diverse situations among different users, giving rise to new social relations.

Mecanismo
Gran vía Street
Installation

Arcos

A poetic, abstract and geometric intervention, the installation was born with the desire to deploy a constructive and humane gesture that echoes the rhythm of the cypress trees, an impossible perspective towards the Church.

Jordi Galí – Arrangement Provisoire
Santiago Church Square
Installation

Sticks & Stones

In the middle of the Calado de San Gregorio, a strange device has appeared. It is, at first sight, a wooden wall that blocks the passage and occupies the entire barrel-vaulted section of the space.

Anna & Eugeni Bach
Calado de San Gregorio
Installation

Prismarium

The pavilion is a crystallography of prisms that organize the space of the square and establish an iconic relationship with the changing images of its perimeter, activated at each moment of the festival.

Ignacio Hornillos – Javier F. Contreras
Plaza Escuelas Trevijano
Pavilion

Arch-play

The installation is an invitation to change our usual perspective on architecture and the city. It creates a new playful relationship between the car parks and the facades of Muro de la Mata Street.

Silvia Bachetti – Agnese Casadio
Parking in El Espolón
Installation

LAN – 4

The design poses an abstraction of a bottle of wine. Its elongated figure creates a landmark on the limit of one of the plots of land of Viña Lanciano, bringing its scale closer to the context of the Ebro and the Mantible bridge.
