Enchanting Traces – 20 years of b720 Arquitectos

Reflections on b720 Arquitectos’ work”

On December 7, the exhibition ‘Enchanting Traces’, dedicated to b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos, opened at the prestigious Aedes gallery in Berlin and can be visited until January 17, 2019.

The b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos team celebrates 20 years with buildings such as the VP Hotel Plaza España (2018, Madrid), the Lycée Français (2017, Barcelona), the Itaim Tower (2017, São Paolo) or the Spanish Pavilion at the Universal Expo (2015, Milan).

The exhibition is a retrospective show, 20 years|20 projects selected to explain the b720 team’s approach and working methods. The central element of the installation evokes a stall in the Encants Barcelona market, the central project of the exhibition discourse. Fragments of each of the projects are arranged on folded panels around this “market”.

A visit to this exhibition will allow visitors to reread the trajectory of the b720 studio, as well as to relive a fragment of history that goes from post-Olympic Barcelona to pre-crisis Spain, passing through the Brazilian boom or the evolution of international architecture in recent years, inviting visitors to approach the work of b720 in multiple ways of perception and reflection.
