Press release
Archit. & design.  Buenos Aires,  28/03/2017

Barcelona will be the guest city at the 2017 Buenos Aires Architecture Biennial

Barcelona will be the first guest city at the Buenos Aires Architecture Biennial, which has been held every two years since 1985 and has established itself as the most important event for debating and publicizing architecture in Latin America. This year it will take place from 7th to 22nd October at the emblematic Usina del Arte, situated in the Arts District in La Boca neighbourhood. Barcelona City Council and Institut Ramon Llull organize an exhibition as well as a programme of academic activities and talks, which will run from 9th to 13th October.

During its thirty-year history, some of the most outstanding architects from all over the world have given talks there, for example Gae Aulenti, Bruno Zevi and Pierre Vago, as well as several winners of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, including Álvaro Siza, Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Toyo Hito and Richard Meyer. 

This year Barcelona, as a guest city at the Biennial, will play a key role in the activities programmed. This is a magnificent opportunity to establish architectural links between both cities and allow architects from Barcelona to be well placed in Latin America.

Barcelona Architecture, Heritage City is a city-wide project undertaken by Barcelona City Council to highlight the value of the city’s architecture and heritage, and it will be the theme of both the exhibition and the talks that Barcelona has prepared for Buenos Aires, as well as the academic programme to accompany them. The Catalan participation will present a concept of heritage that goes beyond historical protection and aims to highlight the indisputable value that architecture, public space and urban landscapes offer society. Hence the City Council will set out the policies it is undertaking in these areas in the Catalan capital, both with regard to preservation and awareness, and intervention and new actions.

The City Council and the Institut Ramon Llull will be organizing Barcelona’s presence as the guest city at the Buenos Aires Architecture Biennial. The Institut Ramon Llull is a consortium that comprises the Government of Catalonia, the Government of the Balearic Islands and Barcelona City Council.

It will be the first time that the Buenos Aires Architecture Biennial, which will take place from 7th to 22nd October, invites a city
