13/1/16 City to City Award in Disseny Hub Barcelona
The architecture and design have become an emblematic part of Barcelona. Barcelona is a truly cosmopolitan city that works with history and urbanism for a living space for everyone. This initiative is proposed by the FAD (Promotion of Arts and Design) since 2008, opting for improving the quality of life in cities.
This year, to present the City to City Barcelona project, the Design Hub in a single exhibition includes urban projects of the previous 5 editions. ‘City in the Hands’ will be available until January 30.
City to City Barcelona FAD Award
From the first edition, City to City Award appears as a social project through proposals of urban improvement in the quality of life of citizenship. Thus, the FAD wants to give visibility to the city as a place of social change and show how it evolves or degenerates consequently and its impact on the living conditions of its citizens.
All those art projects that advocate a change in the quality of life, with clear benefits for the people, and at the same time, bet on the fact create a ‘spirit of the city “are presented. Thus, the works represent substantial improvements with urban impact to sensitize the community a sense of belonging to a kind of common community.
Therefore, City to City Award appears as a challenge to current urban areas, and aims to achieve a social commitment from people with the environment.
