The City of Inter-actions

Hour: 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Place: Elisava (La Rambla, 30-32, Barcelona)
City of Interactions

Elisava opens its doors to the city and directly to La Rambla, a key place of Barcelona’s mixed society, to promote its role as an active agent and a hub for city making projects.

The opening will also be the kick-off of the Superilles+ project, aiming to introduce the DxCM programme next step, that will work on the social dimensions of the already existing physical Super Block, proposing challenges and projects for lively and resilient urban environments.

The event will generate a place for neighbours, academic staff, institution representatives, students and any other participant of city making process to create their own experiences and interactions, reflect on the existing context and find out opportunities for future projects.
