Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Architects’ Association (COAC) and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation have joined forces with Barcelona Building Construmat and ArquinFAD to launch Architecture Week 2017, a pioneering shared experience being held at several settings in the city from 20 to 26 May.

Barcelona will become the epicentre for a wide range of activities linked to the world of architecture and the city during these days, aimed at promoting architectural activities, knowledge, discussions and debates as a means of boosting the public’s appreciation of their constructed urban environment.
