"Europe City" Program

In 2013, the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), together with the Museum of Finnish Architecture (MFA) of Helsinki, the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) (Ljubljana) and The Architecture Foundation (London), worked to produce a joint project based on the European Prize for Urban Public Space. Entitled “Europe City”, the program aims to promote and disseminate by means of reflection and debate a series of exhibitions and encounters of experts which will help to strengthen and promote the democratic values of the cities of the Old Continent.
