Exhibition “Made in Europe”

MIES CONTAINERS / ARCHITECTURE IN THE NEIGHBOURHOODS / ARCHITECTURE BY DISTRICTS

19-24 May

From 19 to 24 May, the exhibition ‘Made in Europe’ will be set up in the heart of each district of Barcelona. The exhibition looks back at the construction of Europe in the last 30 years by means of the most important architecture highlighted by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe through its awards.

In order to expose the neighbourhoods to architecture, ‘Made in Europe’ will be located in 11 containers distributed in the districts of the city of Barcelona and in two extra venues.

Inside each container you will find architectural models related to a specific theme: administrative, cultural, sports, entertainment, office buildings and more. The containers will also include maps so you can discover the most influential architecture in your neighbourhood.
