This exhibition is a retrospective look at 20 years|20 projects, selected to explain the approach and working methodology of the b720 team. The centrepiece of this installation evokes a stall of the Encants Barcelona market (one of our most renown projects), which acts as the focal point of the exhibition’s discourse.

Around this ‘market’, fragments of each project have been placed on folding panels. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to reread the story of the b720 studio and relive a part of history, spanning the years of post-Olympic Barcelona to Spain before the economic downturn, passing through the Brazilian boom and the recent evolution of world architecture. We invite all visitors to approach b720’s work in multiple ways of perception and reflection.
