In 2012 Pablo Álvarez Funes, Javier Cenicacelaya and Alejandro García Hermida established INTBAU Spain. Since then it has become an important network of individuals and the necessary platform to promote and link all the numerous similar initiatives existing in Spain. More than 100 people living in Spain had joined INTBAU by 2015.

Our main goal is sharing, connecting and promoting what our members are organizing or developing: the activities of Terrachidia Association, the Rafael Manzano Prize conferences and workshops, the activities of the Centro de Investigación de Arquitectura Tradicional (CIAT) and many other events organized by any of our members which share our aims: to promote a contemporary practice of building, architecture and urbanism nurtured and enriched by the legacy of tradition.
We also collaborate with many of these institutions and associations, apart from diffusion, directly contributing when any of our members volunteers to participate or to support their activities.
INTBAU Spain is closely collaborating with INTBAU Portugal too. The First INTBAU Iberian Meeting is taking place in 2016.
