Festival Internacional de Arquitectura y Diseño de Logroño

Concéntrico es el Festival Internacional de Arquitectura y Diseño de Logroño que propone reflexionar sobre el ámbito urbano y la ciudad. La nueva edición, 05, se celebra del 26 de abril al 1 de mayo de 2019.

El Festival invita a recorrer la ciudad mediante instalaciones, exposiciones, encuentros, actividades y performances que crean una conexión entre las sedes, plazas, calles, patios y espacios ocultos que habitualmente pasan desapercibidas en su día a día.

Cada instalación está creada por equipos de arquitectos y/o diseñadores que proponen, experimentan y exploran nuevos campos del diseño del entorno. De esta forma, se establece un diálogo entre el patrimonio y la arquitectura contemporánea que busca activar la reflexión de los ciudadanos sobre los espacios.

Design Month Graz 2019 focuses its program on the topic “Women & Design”.
Design and product design – especially in gender issues a story full of misunderstandings and clichés. The design of everyday objects still reflects the gender stereotypes of their designers. The most famous designers – as in architecture – are still men. While the areas of fashion and graphic design are largely determined by women, the industrial and product design division still seem firmly in the hands of men. What it takes is an awareness of gender-sensitive design and, last but not least, designers who are ready to break stereotypes with pleasure.
