The intersection of music and architecture


The intersection of music and architecture

20 November | From 19:00 h to 23:30 h

Architects and musicians have been in contact throughout history, to provide feedback on their creative processes and endow their respective arts with new compositional elements. This event will reflect on the relationship between avant-garde architecture and the production of the contemporary urban scene with: Nuria Moliner, Ibon Bilbao of Arquitectos de Cabecera and Antonio Giráldez and Pablo Ibáñez of Bartlebooth publishers. We will finish with a concert by Ama Say.

An event to say goodbye to this edition of URBANBATfest and to celebrate the past ten years in style.
