Open House Barcelona
October 27-28 2018

The next edition of 48H Open House Barcelona takes place on 27 & 28 October 2018, following the success of the first edition in 2010. The event aims to encourage locals to appreciate the value of good architecture and urbanism, opening over 200 great buildings of different styles, forms and sizes to the public. The 48H Open House Barcelona program is built around the broad network of buildings that will open their doors to the public and it is set within the six Barcelona boroughs (Barcelona, Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Vilassar de Dalt, Sant Joan DespĂ­, Badalona and L’Hospitalet de Llobregat). The participation of many architects and volunteers explaining the city's architecture, different activities which complement the event, and the fact that it is a completely free event, encourages dialogue between visitors and citizens to improve architecture and public urban space knowledge. Highlights: The Festival represents a unique opportunity to enjoy architectural experiences related to the city's history: from Roman ruins to contemporary architecture, going through Catalan Gothic, Neoclassic, Modernist and Modern Style buildings which are included in the program. Besides, a wide range of dwellings representing from different periods and many examples of urban transformation, emphasizing the ones of the Olympic Games, would allow citizens to enhance their knowledge of Barcelona's history. On the other hand, different themed tours are available depending on the visitors' interests such as Sustainability, Infrastructures, Social Housing, or to discover other works of some historiacal and aknow architects like Guastavino, the architect of New York, or Jujol the author of the Park Guell’s bench. www.instagram.com/48hopenhousebcn/ twitter.com/48hOpenHouseBcn www.facebook.com/48HOpenHouseBarcelona
