“The Architecture Gallery Xmas” at Barbecho Madrid

The Architecture Gallery is devoted to works of architects and artists working in the environment of architecture. Its singularity is to be a solidarity gallery: 20% of the profits of each sold work it’s assigned to projects of social architecture.
