Exhibition Opening Reception & Book Signing | ENCOUNTERS

When: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM FRIDAY, MAY 9

Where: At The Center   

Join us for the opening of ENCOUNTERS

ENCOUNTERS represents an architectural installation created to discover, explore, and display the work of Spanish practice luis vidal + architects (LVA)—a celebration of their vision and main projects over the last ten years, including the soon-to-be-inaugurated Terminal 2 at London’s Heathrow Airport, scheduled to open in June 2014.

A “vertical garden” planted by hand: the installation (6,000 “flowers”, 80 projects, 18 cities) will take the viewer through a personal journey along the conceptual map of Luis Vidal and his collaborators. ENCOUNTERS is an interactive exhibition with a surprising touch of augmented reality. Welcome to the world of LVA. Expect the unexpected.

About luis vidal + architects (LVA) 
In 2004 Luis Vidal founded luis vidal + architects (LVA). Since then, LVA has developed more than 80 projects of different scales, many of which have been recognized with prestigious awards.
