The presentation of the first Open House Madrid festival will take place tomorrow 9th September at Giner de los Ríos Foundation. The project of Amid Cero9 has been the place chosen to present the program of this event that will allow to visit different buildings and architectural studies for free during the weekend of 26 and 27 of September.
