Architecture and Place Making International Seminar

School of Architecture at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, 7-8 November

This international seminar is held each year in Madrid, in order to foster the values of traditional building, architecture and urban planning, especially amongst the new generations of professionals specialising in construction, architecture and urban planning.
It brings nationally and internationally renowned experts together with an audience of students, professors and other professionals, and they always result in interesting proposals, debates and knowledge exchanges amongst individuals from a wide array of countries and backgrounds.

The Seminar is divided into four sessions:
First Session: Creating Places
Second Session: Place Making Theory and Education
Third Session: Crafts, Local Character and Community
Forth Session: Creating Places II
