In July 2020 dpr-barcelona will open the first rooms of the Future Architecture Library: A living repository for the publishing production of Future Architecture platform Members, displaying the books they have produced under the umbrella of the platform, with access to previews or whole content and links to purchase websites, enhancing connections between platform members, emergent creatives and readers.
