The city

The sixth edition of Concéntrico broadens the festival’s usual focus on the historic centre of Logroño to connect with other spaces, allowing for new approaches to the urban environment.

New spaces add to the terraces and squares that are further away from the day-to-day life of the city, due to their heritage, urban, spatial and historic value. They become part of the proposed route for visitors and residents to allow them to discover the architecture of the city.

The goal of Concéntrico is to open up these symbolic places and reinterpret them through the different architecture and design teams and their interventions, with a specific project for each location. By doing so, we seek to reveal the intimate relationship that exists between contemporary architecture and its capacity to transform the lives of people.

The festival is aimed at a wide audience, with multiple different suggested routes for an unconventional look at the city. The architectures, exhibitions, discussions and activities are all elements of reflection and observation, to awaken the desire to reclaim the joy of spaces, of the city.

The locations

One of the most important features of this festival is the character of the locations. Interior courtyards, hidden spaces or new places, all part of a connective tissue that has been of great importance in the history of the city but which are now rarely visited, or not even open to regular transit. The common factor of all the selected spaces is that they lack a clear function, and therefore are places in which one walks by without stopping.

These places, common in almost every city, slowly disappear from common knowledge, and even the collective imagination, turning them into hidden spaces. Yet they still maintain their own identity, and can be transformed very easily with just a few elements. Something which allows contemporary architecture the chance to reveal and awaken these dormant spaces.
