Contemporary Culture Festival
For three weeks, EUROPES aims to make Barcelona a gateway to Europe, thanks to a programme of over 250 activities from over thirty European countries, including performances, exhibitions, presentations, talks, shows, meetings and screenings.
As a part of the EUROPES festival, the EEA shows a photo and multimedia exhibition of its living façade. The living façade illustrates the significance of vertical gardens as urban green areas. The EEA's building was covered by about 5,000 plants drawing a map of the plant diversity in Europe. The opening will be on Monday the 25th of October, where the architect Johanna Rossbach and the member of the scientific committee, Dr Sybille van den Hove will address the visitors and answer questions. Danish Musician Adi Mahler, will contribute with a concert.
