Reusing Rooftops Barcelona 2024

Reusing Rooftops, in collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, has launched an international competition to transform the rooftops of Barcelona into useful spaces that enhance the quality of life for its citizens.

The competition invites participants from all over the world to propose innovative solutions for the sustainable reuse of these urban spaces and features a jury made up of firms such as Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), MVRDV, and Porras Guadiana.
