The Fundación EDUARDO TORROJA, was created in 2004 to:
- Act as a vehicle for the mutual empowerment of architecture and civil engineering through the organisation of related activities; to identify areas of relevant research and encourage their exploration; and to further the visibility of new trends and know-how in these disciplines, all from an integrative and multi-disciplinary perspective, inspired by Eduardo Torroja’s example.
- In this context, one of the foundation’s primary aims is to update, maintain and publish a detailed inventory of all the documents comprising Eduardo Torroja’s scientific and technical legacy, regardless of their location.
The ultimate objective is to enhance general awareness of the lessons to be learnt from the timeless model of thought and action on which Eduardo Torroja based his international and multi-disciplinary endeavour. This model charts a specific pathway for innovation to meet the current and future needs of a changing society.
