On July 24, 2018, at 6:00 pm, architect Mario Corea, Hon. FAIA, will give a lecture at the Consulate of Argentina in New York. He is the founding partner of Mario Corea Arquitectura, an international architecture firm based in Barcelona with an affiliate office in Buenos Aires. The firm has more than 40 years of experience working on a wide range of projects that provide services to the cities and communities where they are located. In his talk entitled “Between Europe and Latin America: Building the Healthy City,” he will present a selection of the latest projects his office has completed on both continents including the General Hospital of Mollet, the Girona Public Library and the ecotourism project Médanos Patagonia.
