XV Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism “Empty Spain, Full Spain. Strategies for Conciliation”
Date: Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, Barcelona: 28 June - 16 September, 2021. Museo Patio Herreriano, Valladolid: 2 July - 10 October, 2021

Docomomom International would like to share the XV Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism (BEAU), which will be presented at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe invites you to visit the exhibition that can be enjoyed until 16 September and in parallel, from 2 July to 10 October, at the Patio Herreriano Museum in Valladolid. Two emblematic sites with a common objective: to connect architecture, urban planning and citizenship under the slogan: “Empty Spain, Full Spain. Strategies for conciliation”.

“The Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, together with the Patio Herreriano Museum of Contemporary Art in Valladolid. will act as co-venue of the XV Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism (BEAU) in 2021 ‘España vacía, España llena. Strategies for Conciliation’ curated by Anna Bach, Eugeni Bach (authors of Mies Missing Materiality) and Óscar Miguel Ares.

The entire exhibition strategy of the Biennial will revolve around seven themes that will show the dichotomy and the way in which certain concepts are approached from architecture and urban planning in ‘Empty Spain and Full Spain’. All of this will be done with the aim of outlining similarities and differences that will allow us to define meeting points: territory, society, sustainability, gender, demography, community and economy. Thanks to the proposal, the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion will host, both in a presential format and online, part of the events that will constitute this Biennial.”
