The Madrid Architecture Week 2018 has already started, on Friday September 25th, and it will last till Sunday, October 7th.  On this period, you can attend plenty of events, conferences and activities related to architecture in different parts of the city.

 

The XV edition of Madrid Architecture Week is organized by Colegio de Arquitectos de Madrid and Fundación de Arquitectura COAM, in collaboration with Ayuntamiento de Madrid and Italian Embassy in Madrid. 

 

According to the organizers, the main goal is to continue bringing architecture and the development of the future city to the society as a whole, and to spread the architectural heritage, which makes Madrid one of the reference capital cities to this discipline in the world. In this XV Edition, Milan is the invited city. 

Architecture Visits

The most beloved activities of all editions of the Architecture Week are the Architecture Visits. Some of the most relevant buildings and urban projects in the city can be visited, being accompanied by their architects and/or experts in the field.
