Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Architects’ Association (COAC) and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation join forces every year to organise the Barcelona Architecture Week, a joint initiative that takes place at various locations in the City of Barcelona.

During those days, Barcelona becomes the centre of a wide range of activities relating to the world of architecture and the city, beyond disciplinary and territorial boundaries, stimulating reflection on the built environments of cities and their value, by disseminating architectural activities, knowledge, experience, and discussion.

With participation from public institutions and local residents, an extensive programme of events is put together, featuring film and architectural activities, talks, tours, competitions, and hubs in all the city’s districts.

Barcelona undoubtedly has a heritage of undeniable value in its everyday urban architecture. Architecture is the basis of the physical space where Barcelona’s residents live their lives. Therefore, Architecture Week aims to strengthen this essential bond between architecture and the public.

Fundació Mies van der Rohe will participate in two different ways with the 5 participants of the
Future Architecture Platform. Four of them will participate in the Barcelona Architecture Week
and the fifth team will produce a video of the Young Talent Architecture Award 2020 event that
will take place in Venice as a collateral event of La Biennale di Venezia 2021, in September. 2021 program related to the Future Architecture Platform:
