  • Ariadna Perich Ariadna Perich
The bursting of the property bubble in 2007 and the current economic situation in Spain has forced several generations of Spanish architects to redefine the way they practice. How did they do this and where has this taken them? The lecture will try to illustrate these questions with a personal and inevitably subjective collection of experiences and facts.
