The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia presents the book of its 9th Advanced Architecture Contest: Design for Biocities.

This year’s competition asked students and professionals from all over the world to propose how to design urban spaces, cities, buildings, objects, or solutions of any scale, directed towards the transition to Biocities. During the event participants among the Winners and Honorable Mention projects will discuss the urge to rethink human settlements at a time when our natural environments and the human habitats are more clearly intertwined.

The publication includes the more than 130 proposals that were selected among the 202 proposals received from over 50 countries.
