Cities Connection Project seeks to establish connections at the level of Architectural themes between the city of Barcelona and other European cities or regions with a significant architectural tradition. A series of architecture exhibitions are the focus of this project that also offers other events such as conferences, academic discussion and professional meetings. Every exchange is articulated around a fresh theme, which is related to the specific characteristics of the invited city or region. The Import Zurich title focuses mainly on Zurich's cooperative housing projects. For about fifteen years now a renaissance of urban living is bringing about a renewal of activity among the housing cooperatives. They have adopted ecological standards, they have developed socially compatible forms of denser building, and their large-scale projects have a significant impact on the qualitative development of the city's neighbourhoods. This is coupled with a new generation of architects who, thanks in part to architecture competitions, have had the opportunity to develop, test out and affirm their own field of research within a very strict and deterministic legal framework. With contributions by Andre Bideau, Daniel Kurz, Josep Maria Montaner, and Zaida Muxi.
