Enchanting traces – 20 years of b720 architecture

Reflections on b720 Arquitectos’ work”

The Aedes gallery dedicates an exhibition to the b720 architecture studio which can be visited until January 17th 2019 in Berlin. The Aedes Architecture Forum is one of the most prestigious galleries in the world.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos, with a trajectory of works that range from the Hotel VP. Plaza España (2018, Madrid), the Lycée Français (2017, Barcelona), the Torre Itaim (2017, São Paolo) and the Pavilion of Spain at the Expo Universal (2015, Milán).

This exhibition is a retrospective look at 20 years|20 projects, selected to explain the approach and working methodology of the b720 team. The centrepiece of this installation evokes a stall of the Encants Barcelona market (one of our most renown projects), which acts as the focal point of the exhibition’s discourse.

Around this ‘market’, fragments of each project have been placed on folding panels. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to reread the story of the b720 studio and relive a part of history, spanning the years of post-Olympic Barcelona to Spain before the economic downturn, passing through the Brazilian boom and the recent evolution of world architecture. We invite all visitors to approach b720’s work in multiple ways of perception and reflection.
