The Disseny Hub Barcelona welcomes its latest exhibition, ‘The new realist. Catalan and balearic architecture from the 2008 crisis.

The exhibition shows the work of a group of Catalan and Balearic architects - known as the 'new realists' - who, following the 2008 crisis and aware that a change of cycle was taking place both in society and in the profession, redefined new parameters in the exercise of architecture. It is a new generation of architects who question the expansionist parameters that were worked on until then, and which is strengthened as the climate emergency becomes more apparent.

Curated by the museum’s Joan Roig and Carme Ribas, the exhibition will present images of the new architecture and information about its significance within Catalan architecture and design today. The exhibition will run until January next year - don’t miss it.
