Urban Architecture Festival

Granada is the city that will host the first edition of TAC! The Plaza del Humilladero will be the site of the pavilion from 14 October to 14 November 2022.

What is TAC?!

TAC!

Urban Architecture Festival

TAC! Urban Architecture Festival will each year turn a Spanish city into a space for innovation and experimentation. It will be carried out through the construction of a temporary pavilion by young architects chosen through an open call for proposals.

TAC! will unite contemporary architecture, young creative practices, and urban and social reflection through meetings and activities around the pavilion that will establish a dialogue with the public.

TAC! is an initiative promoted by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda in collaboration with the Arquia Foundation.

Granada is the city chosen to host this first edition of TAC! because it is a reference point in the history of Spanish architecture. The Plaza del Humilladero in the Nasrid city is the place chosen to house the pavilion, which will be open to visitors from 14 October to 14 November 2022.

The call for proposals for the construction of the pavilion, aimed at young architects, has already ended. The results will be made public in the coming weeks.

Following the jury’s decision, the creators of the winning proposal will receive a prize of €10,000 and will be able to carry out the project with an estimated base budget of €90,000 for the construction of the pavilion, which may be increased with sponsorship contributions.

But, above all, it is the space where visitors used to enter the city after crossing the Zirí bridge over the Genil river.

This space has been a meeting place and an obligatory stop for those coming from or going to the south of the city. It continues to be a place where many activities take place and a space enjoyed by pedestrians, forming part of the length of the Paseo del Salón.
