Concéntrico is the Logroño (Spain) International Festival of Architecture and Design that annually proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city. The Festival invites visitors to tour the city through installations, exhibitions, meetings, activities and performances that create a connection between the venues, squares, streets, courtyards and hidden spaces that usually go unnoticed in their daily lives.
Design With Company – Stewart Hicks, Allison Newmeyer, Stone Wall Stand In, Plaza del Revellín

Since 2015, the eight editions of the festival have brought together more than 100 urban interventions created by teams of national and international architects and designers experimenting with new fields of environmental design. In this way, a dialogue is established between the city, heritage and contemporary architecture that activates citizens’ reflection on these spaces.

Concéntrico presents an extensive program with 21 interventions, meetings and activities involving the work of more than 100 professionals from 15 different nationalities.
In its development, numerous groups and entities that promote new collective practices in the public space are integrated from the local level: educational centers of various levels, such as IES Sagasta, IES Batalla de Clavijo, CEIP Las Gaunas, or social entities associated with Logroño Intercultural and the Rafael Azcona Library, among others.

The ninth edition of Concentrico extends to new areas of the city, widening the object of its interventions from east to west: from the Plaza sin Nombre in the neighborhood of Madre de Dios to the Cubo; also from north to south: from the river Ebro to the new station park.
Locations and programs such as Cities Ahead with Goethe-Institut provide a constantly evolving listening to continue to raise debates that look at the city itself. These shared practices extend the temporality of the festival.
