New perspectives on how to redraw the cities of tomorrow, focusing on the cities that hosted the Olympics Games – Beijing in 2008 and Barcelona in 1992 – and therefore experienced dramatic changes in their urban and architectural design.

With this exhibition the Cervantes Institute in Beijing emphasises a fundamental and innovative aspect in the cultural and professional exchanges between Spain and China, highlighting the excellence of our young experts in the field architecture and design.

The opening of the exhibition will take place in the framework of the Beijing Design Week this Saturday 24 September 2016, at 16.00 in the exhibition hall of the Cervantes Institute in Beijing. The entrance is free and open to public.
