The exhibition «Polis. 7 lliçons del Premi Europeu de l’Espai Públic Urbà» (Polis. 7 Lessons of the European Prize for Urban Public Space) continues its visits of institutions and cultural centers all around Europe. It now moves to Budaörs, a town situated in the Budapest Metropolitan Area, where it will be exhibited until 29 April.
The organizer and responsible of bringing the exhibition to the citizens of Budaörs is the Association of Architects “Húsznegyven”. It will be shown at the Zichy Major art gallery, situated in the city center. «Polis. 7 lliçons del Premi Europeu de l’Espai Públic Urbà» will be part of a series focusing on urban planning in the cities of Eastern Europe in recent years, seen from a global and, more specifically, European perspective.
