FAD (Fostering Arts and Design) is a private, independent and not-for-profit association founded in the year 1903 that has the objective of promoting design and architecture in the country’s cultural and economic life. FAD has become the first centre of reference for design and architecture in Catalonia and Spain thanks to its commitment to the ongoing task of promoting creative culture through exhibitions, professional talks, prizes and events.
FAD is articulated via five associations that represent the different disciplines of design:
ADI-FAD (industrial design)
ADG-FAD (graphic design and visual communication)
ARQUIN-FAD (architecture and interior design)
A-FAD (art and craftwork)
MODA-FAD (image and fashion)
