VISIONS BY PEOPLE ABOUT MATERIAL CULTURES is a Barcelona based knowledge platform with a biannual magazine distributed internationally, addressing various perspectives on material cultures from a critical and speculative approach in research. Its purpose is to raise awareness regarding materials, going beyond their physical properties, and considering them as a new emerging discipline with its own identity that articulates the world. Materials are intrinsically linked to the evolution of humanity: they provide identity, build heritage, and project futures. We focus on the social impact and perception of materials, as well as their relevance in activating and dynamizing various cultures and socioeconomic systems globally.

With biannual presentations and participative performances by rising and consolidated people, VISIONS BY magazine issues are conformed by a curated eclectic mix of articles, photographic essays, interviews and case studies, englobing the different forms of understanding the different material cultures that historically and contemporaneously define the cultural, social, and economic context in which we live.

VISIONS BY has been presented at international universities, educational institutions and cultural venues such as Harvard GSD (Boston), Central Saint Martins (London), Bungee Space (New York), DDW (Eindhoven), Casa Bosques (CDMX) or Casa Antillón (Madrid), among others.
