The festival invites visitors to explore 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 everyday life.
Thanks to the support of Acción Cultural Española (ACE), several international organizations working in the field of architecture will be invited to share their vision about the discipline and establish a dialog with the work presented in Logroño. The organizations invited are Arkki (Finland), Lisbon Architecture Triennale (Portugal), Mextrópoli (México), and MAS Context (US).
Last year MAS Context organized an event featuring the director of Concéntrico, Javier Peña Ibañez, and two of the participants of the sixth edition, Ana & Eugeni Bach and KOGAA. You can watch the event here.
