The Basque Institute of Architecture becomes a cinema this week

Architecture and film come together again at the Basque Institute of Architecture. It will take place this week as part of the Mugak/ International Architecture Biennial of the Basque Country, with an exhibition, a new short film competition called Galernak and several conferences. In the organisation of the programme, both the Higher Technical School of Architecture of the UPV/EHU and Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola have taken part, as well as the San Sebastian Festival, which is collaborating in the Biennial for the first time.

The pioneers of design furniture in the Basque Country are the stars of an exhibition and a documentary in the Plaza del Machete in Vitoria.

In the 70s and 80s, there were a number of people who were committed to design in order to create an industry that did not exist in the Basque Country: furniture and design products for furnishing spaces. Now, the Habic cluster is paying tribute to them with the project 'Artisans of Design', which was presented today in Vitoria-Gasteiz as part of the Basque Country International Architecture Biennial Mugak/. Consisting of a travelling exhibition and a documentary on those humble origins, it landed this morning in the Plaza del Machete, where it will remain until next Tuesday after visiting Bilbao and before moving on to Donostia.

Vitoria dedicates an exhibition to 30 developments that summarise the housing policy in the Basque Country since the transition to democracy

Housing and architecture are intimately linked. The  Basque Country International Biennial of Architecture Mugak/ presented today the exhibition 'Housing the Basque Country', which reviews the housing policy in the Basque Country since the Transition. To illustrate it, 30 buildings representing some of the best examples of what has been built over the last 40 years are on display, ten for each historical territory.  

Sestao Berri approaches the concept of 'productive housing' with four days full of activities, presentations and workshops.

This week, a seminar will spread out between Bilbao and Sestao with different conferences, lectures and workshops to address the concept of productive housing. The seminar, organised by Sestao Berri, Sestao Town Council, AVS Gestores Públicos and the University of the Basque Country, will take place on 16, 17, 18 and 19 November as part of the Basque Country International Architecture Biennial Mugak/. Under the title 'Perspectives on Productive Housing', activities such as participatory debates, workshops, exhibitions, guided tours and other parallel activities have been organised. 

An exhibition recreates great urban projects in the Basque Country that did not come to fruition

The construction of the first green spaces in our cities coincided with one of the most prolific and unitary periods of Basque architecture, a time of urban revival promoted under the umbrella of the Enlightenment, between the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century. An exhibition that brings together some of the projects of the period, built, not built or built but modified, is now coming to the Higher Technical School of Architecture (ETSA) of the UPV/EHU as part of the Basque Country International Architecture Biennial Mugak/.

The Programme is being prepared
