Bilbaos Strategic Evolution Book launch and panel discussion
FREE and open to the public but reservations are required.
MAS Context editor in chief Iker Gil will present the most recent issue of the journal dedicated to the city of Bilbao.
After the presentation, Iker Gil will moderate a conversation about Bilbao and Chicago with MarySue Barrett, president of the Metropolitan Planning Council, and Philip Enquist, FAIA, partner in charge of Urban Design and Planning at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM).
The Bilbao double-issue, designed by graphic design studio 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.
