Concentrico is Logroño’s International Festival of Architecture and Design that proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city. The new edition, Concéntrico 06, will be held from September 3 to 6, 2020.

The Festival invites visitors to tour the city through installations, exhibitions, meetings, activities and performances that create a connection between the squares, streets, courtyards and hidden spaces that usually go unnoticed in their daily lives.

This week we have presented the programme and the poster of the sixth edition of Concéntrico, a graphic summation of the projects that we will enjoy at the festival. 14 interventions, 4 exhibitions, meetings and activities. The entire programme can now be consulted in detail on the website. See you in Logroño from September 3–6, 2020!
