Opening Wednesday, April 19th, from 6PM - 8PM
MAS Context editor in chief Iker Gil will present the most recent issue of the journal dedicated to the city of Bilbao on Wednesday, April 19, at 6 pm. 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.
