Concéntrico 09, International Architecture and Design Festival of Logroño, proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city through architecture and design proposals in different formats. The new edition will be held from 27 April to 2 May 2023.
The festival has opened the call for proposals for three interventions at the ninth edition of the festival and a call for participatory practices with the Cities Ahead program. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 10 January 2023 at 23:59 hours (GMT+1).
The calls, which have a digital delivery format, add as a novelty, Cities Ahead, a European program initiative of the Goethe-Institut, which promotes creative cities. Participation is open to the international audience and seeks the creation of several of the festival’s proposals:
- Pavilion in the Plaza de Escuelas Trevijano, starting point for the tours and activities. A meeting space that shows in an innovative way how urban spaces have become a fundamental reference for coexistence.
- Installation in Viña Lanciano, in collaboration with Bodegas LAN, proposes to work on the Mantible Ecológico plot, a vineyard of high landscape and ecological value, thanks to its unique location around a meander of the river Ebro. A unique enclave not only for the cultivation of vines but also for the coexistence of a multitude of fauna and varieties of riverbank flora.
- Installation in the Felipe VI Park, a public space of urban character and landscape that continuously occupies the route of the railway tracks. It is proposed to work on the west stand and its surroundings, one of the points of interest and activity in the park.
- Cities Ahead, promoted by Goethe-Institut, launches a call for projects by international creatives who propose participatory actions for the transformation of the space, integrating aspects of sustainable development, urban innovation, and ecological transition.
Concéntrico will be responsible for the production and construction of the winning proposals in coordination with the teams selected in the competitions for Plaza Escuelas Trevijano, Viña Lanciano, and Parque Felipe VI. These interventions will form part of the set of projects to be carried out in different locations in the city.
