Where do we come from? Where are we going?
21,22,23 November 2018, Madrid
The Eduardo Torroja Foundation will be organizing an international conference on construction research entitled “Architecture, Engineering and Concrete / AEC”,
in conjunction with the Eduardo Torroja Institute of Construction
Science of the Superior Council of Scientific researches / CSIC, and
with the co- sponsors; ACHE, FIB and IASS, and the collaboration of the
General Directorate of Architecture of the Spanish Ministry of
Development, and the Technical University of Madrid.
conference is being called to support research – past, present and
future- on architecture and engineering built in concrete and concrete
as construction material. Following the footsteps of Eduardo Torroja,
the conference will be a forum for international reflection and debate.
It will revolve around a philosophy and praxis that advocate a view of
architecture and engineering as part of the same engine, built in the
factory of innovation and serving society by driving progress. The
intention is to encourage dialogue among researchers, professionals,
builders, ancillary industries and the university, sharing experiences
and building relationships among the various actors involved in the
development required by a society characterized by relentless change.
