The Disseny Hub Barcelona is filled with different personalities rooted in the world of architecture to talk about the multiple roles of cities in the 21st century, of architecture and urbanism in contemporary society and to present the Protocol Barcelona, a document built throughout the day through the contributions of twenty-six international voices.
The Barcelona Protocol is an intensive symposium that presents a soft manifesto of intentions with goals and aspirations for the future of the city. Organized in seven panels (Public Space, Public Housing, Public Infrastructure, Public Culture, Public Education, Public Futures and Public Visions), the event consists of a series of presentations and round tables to discuss the means and methods by which we build, think and dream cities, the urban and the concept of public. Each speaker presents three reflections on Re-Growth, the theme of this first edition of Model sharing important values and strategies to be considered in the production and articulation of knowledge on a local and international scale.
