Cities Connection Project in Bordeaux
After Brussels in October 2018, Barcelona in April 2019 and Tarragona in September-November 2019, Lugano in November 2019-February 2020, Wallonia-Brussels Architectures will present the exhibition Import WB _Export BCN. Re-activate the city, curated by Nicola Regusci and Xavier Bustos at the 308- Maison de l’architecture en Nouvelle-Aquitaine à Bordeaux from June 11th till September 20th.
This exhibition takes place within the framework of the partnership proposed to WBA by Cities Connection Project (CCP). CCP was created with the desire to establish a cultural connection between two European cities with an important architectural and cultural tradition. The cities of Zurich, Mendrisio, Geneva and Lausanne were involved in the previous editions.
Each event, called Connection, consists of an exhibition in both participating citiesand offers a new theme that always takes into account the idiosyncrasies and the cultural and architectural background of the invited city or region. This edition is centred on the re-use of existing spaces, the mixed use and the reconstruction of the city and presents 20 projects from Wallonie-Bruxelles and 20 projects from Barcelona.
