The exhibition is a sample that includes the most important twentieth century buildings in Madrid which,  either because their temporary proximity or programmatic modesty, have not been recognized as BIC (Well of Cultural Interest). This exhibition was created with the aim of supporting the efforts from the COAM which is underway to request the addition of 20 buildings as BIC and 150 sets as BIP (Heritage Resource). Thus, it is intended that society gives more importance to these works thaty, usually,  go unnoticed and so the locals discover and value the role of architects in designing the landscape of the city of last 60 years.
