XVIII Madrid Architecture Week poster

 

Until October 10, Madrid becomes the city of buildings during the XVIII Architecture Week, the event that celebrates the architectural heritage of the capital with up to 140 organized activities: visits to buildings, urban routes, exhibitions and children's activities, and much more!

You will be able to visit up to 47 emblematic buildings in Madrid and go on up to 33 urban itineraries. This year, as a novelty, we have included unprecedented visits to important venues such as the National Library, the Museum of America or the Palace of Abrantes. 

Madrid is especially celebrating the declaration of the Paseo del Prado and El Buen Retiro as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, for which reason two itineraries have been included that cover the area.

Italy has a special presence in this edition, as it celebrates the 300th anniversary of the birth of Sabatini, so visits have been scheduled to important buildings of the famous architect and engineer of the transalpine country. 

The Institute of Italian Culture, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy, has organized the exhibition "Universo Olivetti. The community as a concrete utopia", together with "Julio Cano Lasso. Naturalezas", a large monographic exhibition on the Madrid architect. 

The program also includes the "ArquitectAs" cycle, in memory of the first students of the School of Madrid, and the course "Architecture of Madrid": the architecture of the city through seven important contemporary architects.  

The little ones will also be able to enjoy themselves thanks to several children's activities scheduled for Saturday October 9 and Sunday October 10. During the weekend there will be the Pop Arq Store, a design market of Madrid architects, and ending the event on Sunday afternoon, you can enjoy the Big Band concert. 

All this and much more during this great #semanaarquitectura2021. Do not miss any detail!
