48H Open House Barcelona is Barcelona’s most important festival of architecture and is aimed at the general public rather than those already immersed in the industry of design and construction. Over the course of a weekend, over 150 buildings of all shapes and sizes will open to the public, showcasing some of the city’s most inspiring architecture that would otherwise remain behind closed doors. The people behind the buildings, including the architects who designed them and the people who currently occupy them, will come together for a series of free activities and conferences, with the aim of bringing the public closer to the city’s cultural heritage. The Open House project was founded in London in 1992, and was brought to Barcelona in 2010 as an initiative to re-engage the public with the city’s best architecture. The project has also spread to other architecturally rich cities around the world, including New York, Dublin, Galway and Tel Aviv.
