Panorama Barcelona

Post-textual Practices in a Local Context
Christinenstrasse 18-19, 10119 Berlin
Tue-Fri 11 am–6:30 pm, Sun-Mon 1–5 pm

The Catalan architectural scene has changed since the economic crisis in Spain of 2008. Despite ongoing challenges, a new generation of architects has successfully established itself in Barcelona in recent years – the Catalan metropolis is now a hotbed of forward-thinking architecture and urban planning. Young, independent practices are exploring site-specific formal languages and construction techniques in innovative ways, often tackling diverse tasks with collaborative strategies. Panorama Barcelona, curated by POST LIKE, presents projects by 15 architectural studios established in Barcelona in the last ten years and one special guest from Berlin. Through a collection of models, the exhibition is not only dedicated to different typologies. It also reflects the shift from a textual to a visual culture in the current global architectural discourse, brought about by new image technologies and communication media.

The exhibition is part of the Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory’s programme: Democratic Design: Cooperation, Collaboration and Compromise.

Panorama Barcelona presents a collection of models by 15 architectural studios founded in Barcelona in the last 10 years and one special guest from Berlin. Curated by POST LIKE, the exhibition was already part of the 1st Biennial of Young Architecture in Catalonia (2023) under the title Nameless Models. The exhibition then travelled to Madrid for the opening of the new cultural centra La Casa de la Arquitectura, which is lead by the Ministerio de Transportes, Movilidad y Agenda Urbana (MITMA).

Opening on Friday, May 31st at 6:30 p.m.
