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.

In this context, and with the aim to also connect with the international architecture context, the five Future Architecture Platform participants will be invited to participate in the Barcelona Architecture Week and to establish conversations with local architects, connected to the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
