Concéntrico is the Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design, a reflection on the urban environment and the city. This year's edition, Concéntrico 04, takes place from 27 April to 1 May 2018. The Festival invites you to explore the city through installations, exhibitions, discussions, activities and performances, creating a connection between places, squares, streets, terraces and hidden spaces that usually go unnoticed.
The latest edition of the festival brings together installations created by 14 teams of national and international architects and designers, experimenting with new fields of environmental design. This establishes a dialogue between the city, its heritage, and contemporary architecture, enabling citizens to reflect on all these areas.

The exhibition and activities broaden the focus to new international contexts, such as Czech architect Martin Rajni, who is exhibiting his work specialising in wood constructions, and Migrant Garden, a reflection on the processes of migration through small architectures, among others. Rounding out this field are the Discussions on curating, research and teaching, that will encourage learning and cross-disciplinary conversation about some of the most prestigious happenings in architecture, design and the city, which are currently being held in countries such as Portugal, France, Poland and Chile.
