The exhibition “Enchanting Traces” inaugurated in Berlin at the AEDES gallery in 2018 on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of b720, now closes its itinerary by being exhibited in Madrid, at the WPP La Matriz building. Slightly reduced in volume, but also incorporating some works built in recent years, it fully retains its meaning.
Gathering physical remains of the production of almost 25 years of b720’s life, piling them up as in a flea market stall and surrounding them with 22 reflections of our work, invites and suggests a shared reflection on what has been done and what is yet to be done.
In the pile of remains found in the studio we can glimpse pre-crisis Spain, the Brazilian boom and the evolution of international architecture in recent decades. They also hide hidden charms, secret hopes, heroic endeavors, unexpected discoveries, responsible decisions, sensitive intuitions…: the work of architects. Each one is the object of reflection, literal and figurative, around the studio’s aspiration to make, and continue to make, good architecture (b720).
We look forward to seeing you from September 20th!
