The Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio present a 24-hour creative exchange spanning from 22.00–22.00 (19-20.5.12) evolving from the intimate setting of a private dinner through to a local market, featuring architectural installations, DJs and culinary delights. The project aims to expose a hidden ‘worknet’ between multiple professions and their products.

Over the course of the weekend project architects from architectural firms including: West 8, Burgos y Garrido, Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos and Churtichaga+Cuadra Salcedo will take the group on guided tours of recently completed work including the Matadero arts complex and Madrid Río. Set in 148,300 square metres the redevelopment of Matadero Madrid has seen the transformation of a dilapidated slaughterhouse into a sleek and modern space for the arts. Madrid Río, designed by West 8 and three Madrid-based firms led by Ginés Garrido Colomero, is the largest intervention in the city, converting a disused section of motorway into parkland.
