S/E, urban coincidences between San Sebastian and European cities

S/E, urban coincidences between San Sebastian and European cities



The exhibition hiru hiri – city views invites us to reflect on the character of the three capitals of the Basque Country, bringing to light the personal and often hidden corners of Bilbao, Donostia and Vitoria-Gasteiz in the form of postcards. Now, from paper we will move on to words, with three online conferences, one for each capital.

San Sebastian will be in charge of closing this cycle and will do so by finding connections not only with one, but with several European cities. This time the person in charge of searching and sharing urban coincidences will be the PhD in Architecture and professor at the ETSA UPV / EHU Izaskun Aseguinolaza, who together with the ex-director of Urban Planning of the city Juan Carlos Cuevas will talk about the urban development of the Gipuzkoan capital in the last two centuries. They will talk about how this development has been shaping nature to be able to settle and how the Ensanche de Cortázar block has been interpreted, among other issues. Throughout the colloquium, they will discover connections around these issues with different European cities. You can register HERE.
