THE 2020 BAQ
This edition of the BAQ aims to discuss architecture based on the concept of Transformation. By means of the critical reading of architectural works and practices that achieve this type of intervention, we will study the transforming capacity of architecture from the discipline to its environment and the city, one that questions the existing system of relationships to reach a new approach that balances the ideal and the real.
The BAQ invites to discuss contemporary production of the built environment, aiming to better the practice of our profession.
Axes of the Biennial
Includes: debates, lectures, conversation panels, exhibitions, publications and the Academic Participation for critical analysis at national and international level.
