During this time, the quality and variety of exhibitions developed within the framework of the event have been one of the most far-reaching formats for the dissemination, exchange and analysis of architecture open to a diverse public.
In This edition the BAQ, in response to the social distancing measures that cities are going through, in addition to its Academic agenda and regular Contest, diversifies its formats and becomes a platform for the dissemination of content.
