IED Barcelona opens its installations for the 48h Open House BCN
IED Barcelona will once again open its doors to welcome all visitors to the 48H Open House Barcelona festival that will take place during October 22nd and 23rd. Architecture lovers will get the opportunity to discover how the old Macson textile factory has been converted into the Higher Design School.
For two days there will be guided tours of the building, which is the result of the rehabilitation and refurbishment of this 1952 textile factory, done by Franconi Gonzalez Architects in collaboration with the ProA Solutions studio.
As an initiative to promote creativity and better understand architecture, this year the organization has created a new activity: Open Sketch 2016. This Instagram contest encourages visitors to draw a sketch of one of the city’s buildings and upload a picture of it on social media with the hashtags #OpenHouseBCN and #OpenSketch16.
The winner will receive a grant for the Summer Course in Creative illustration: Idea, Concept and Image from IED Barcelona.
Dates: October 22nd and 23rd.
Place: IED Barcelona – Biada, 11 (Barcelona).
