Bilbao issue launch in Bilbao
March 23, 2017


Thursday March 23, 2017. Event starts at 7:00 pm.


MAS Context editor in chief Iker Gil, along with several contributors, will present our issue dedicated to the city of Bilbao on Thursday, March 23, at 7 pm. The event is organized in collaboration with EIDE, the Association of Designers in the Basque Country and will take place at the Edificio Ensanche (Plaza Ensanche 11, 48009 Bilbao).


The Bilbao double-issue, designed by Meneo, explores the remarkable transformation of the city and the goals and needs driving it. Through insightful essays, personal photo essays, failed projects, exceptional successes, and open interviews, this issue provides a comprehensive look at a metamorphosis whose scope and complexity goes far beyond the construction of a single renowned building.

The issue features contributions by architects, urban planners, structural engineers, landscape designers, photographers, filmmakers, and graphic designers. The list of contributors include Ibon Areso, Diana Balmori, Eduardo Belzunce, José Luis Burgos, Cini Boeri Architetti, Carlos Copertone, Juan Luis de las Rivas, Luis Diaz-Mauriño, Patxi Eguiluz, García de la Torre Arquitectos, Juan García Millán, Iker Gil, IDOM, JAAM, James Stirling Michael Wilford & Associates, Koldo Lus Arana, Elena Martínez-Litago, Ruth Mayoral López, Meneo, NO.MAD, Aitor Ortiz, Lucía C. Pérez-Moreno, Fidel Raso, Tomás Ruiz, Juan Sádaba, Diego Sanz, Patricia Sanz Lacarra, Koldo Serra, Alfonso Vegara, Yosigo, Zaha Hadid Architects, and John Zils.


A limited amount of copies of the Bilbao issue will be available for purchase as well as five posters about Bilbao designed by Meneo, Eider Corral, Karramarro, Hopper Ink, and La Machine Gráfica.
