Cities Connection Project

Geneva / Barcelona

04.11.14

The Cities Connection Project (CCP) is a connector between cities through its architecture, created by architects Nicola Regusci and Xavier Bustos, with the aim of generating synergies among professionals and cultural operators in each city.

The Cities Connection Project was born with the desire to establish a cultural connection between Barcelona and other European cities with an important architectural and cultural tradition. A series of architecture exhibitions are the focus of this project that also offers other events such as conferences, meetings between universities and the desire to create synergies between the professional architects involved. Each event, which is called “connection”, is composed of a first exhibition in Barcelona, followed by a second presentation in the invited city.

    Each new connection will offer a new theme that will always take into account the idiosyncrasy and the cultural and architectural background of the invited city or region. 

    The first edition of the Cities Connection Project, which had a major success, connected the area of Ticino (Swiss Canton) and Barcelona with two exhibitions: _Import TICINO (COAC _May 2013) / _Export BARCELONA (Accademia di Architettura _October 2013).
