Cities Connection Project in Tarragona
After Brussels in October 2018 and Barcelona in April 2019, Wallonia-Brussels Architectures will present the exhibition Import WB _Export BCN. Re-activate the city, curated by Nicola Regusci and Xavier Bustos at Col·legi d'Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC) in Tarragona. It will be on display from September 19th till November 14th.
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 centered 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.
The opening of the exhibition will be preceded by an inaugural lecture given by the Belgian office A229 and the Spanish office Taller 9s, on 19th September. An intermediate conference will also be held on 17th October given by the Belgian office AGWA and the Spanish office GATPA. They will allow local architects to get an idea of the work of our offices before their visit to Belgium.
