LecturePresentation of the book ‘Iglesia San Francisco’

On Thursday 27 June, at 19:00, the Peña Ganchegui Archive presents the book ‘Iglesia San Francisco’ at the Basque Country Architecture Institute. This is the second issue of the Fondo Peña Ganchegui collection, aimed at publishing a selection of Luis Peña Ganchegui’s main works in the form of a monograph. For this second volume, the San Francisco church (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1968) has been chosen, the only incursion by the architect from Gipuzkoa into the field of sacred architecture, and which is particularly relevant at this time, as it is expected that an intervention will soon be undertaken on the building, following its designation as the future headquarters of the March 3rd Memorial Foundation.

ExhibitionComing soon. ‘Arboretum. Trees as architecture’

Trees occupy an important place in the history of architecture. On the one hand, they have been the source of one of the main building materials for centuries. On the other hand, they are one of the fundamental elements of architectural design and urban development projects.

ExhibitionArboretum. Trees as architecture

‘Arboretum. Trees as architecture’ is our first exhibition in 2024. It is travelling from Arc en Rêve Centre d’Architecture (Bordeaux), where it was presented in September 2021 with the aim of reaffirming the architectural character of trees and highlighting the way in which they have been the object of architectural reflection.

Trees as architecture’ arrives at the Basque Country Architecture Institute accompanied by a varied complementary programme that will explore the theme proposed by the exhibition from very different angles.

WorkshopSummercamp 2024. ‘Zuhaitzak’ (‘trees’) – COMPLETE

In the last week of June, the Summercamp returns to the Basque Country Architectura Institute. On the occasion of the exhibition ‘Arboretum. Trees as architecture’, we will raise awareness of these beautiful and essential inhabitants of our city. We will explore the interior and exterior of the Institute in search of different species, with their exuberant shapes and colours. Each day of the week, we will work on different themes related to the natural and built environment, which will be approached through drawing, photography, models, as well as ephemeral spatial interventions.
