The motto of this biennial RELEVANT PRACTICES, defined by the curator, invites us to reflect on the paradox produced by the international success of Spanish architecture (Pritzker Prize 2017, León de Oro at the Venezia Biennial, leadership of Spanish architects in international studies as well as teachers in leading Schools of Architecture) that does not correspond with the volume of architectural production of recent years, but nevertheless reflects a more relevant work than ever.
In this appointment with the young national architecture we will have the presence of:
Iñaki Carnicero, curator of the biennial and the jury formed by: Pilar Díaz by Paisaje Transversal as representative of the participants, Héctor Fernández Elorza, representative of the downtown area, Iñigo García by VAUMM, representative of the northern zone, María González by Sol89, representative of the southern area.
