The third edition of the Service Design Days will take place in one of the most iconic buildings of Barcelona: Disseny Hub Barcelona (Design Hub Barcelona), a melting pot of design in the heart of innovative and creative Barcelona, District 22@.

About the venue

District 22@ is Barcelona’s innovation district, a renovated formerly industrial area, nicknamed ‘the Catalan Manchester’ in the 19th century. The Design Hub is situated next to Jean Nouvel’s famous Torre Glòries. It houses the Barcelona Design Museum, the Barcelona Design Centre and FAD, an independent non-profit organisation that promotes arts, design and architecture. The venue is accessible for wheelchair users. Free wifi is available everywhere.

The keynotes will take place in a large, modern auditorium overlooking the city and the Sagrada Familia. Case talks and masterclasses are given in smaller, intimate spaces.
