Who We Are

Barcelona Design Centre was established in 1973 with the aim of giving design the importance it had in other European cities. This year celebrates 50 years of working with local and worldwide organizations to promote Barcelona design in more than 30 countries.

We understand design as a factor of transformation for competitiveness, sustainability and a positive impact on society, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (2030 Agenda).
