cuadradoamarillo International Conference on Construction Research Eduardo Torroja

On the occasion of Science Week, the Fundación Eduardo Torroja will be organising an international conference on construction research entitled “Housing: past, present and future”, in conjunction with the Eduardo Torroja Institute of Construction Science, the Fundación Juanelo Turriano and the Technical University of Madrid. The conference is being called to support research, history and innovation and to raise public awareness of the importance of these disciplines and of their transmission through education.



Following in the footsteps of Eduardo Torroja, the conference will revolve around a philosophy and praxis that advocate a view of architecture and engineering as parts of the same engine, built in the factory of innovation and serving society by driving progress. The conference will be a forum for international reflection and debate on the past, present and future of housing, the prime architectural space for social well-being. The general theme will be its evolution and its fate in today’s world, in which sustainability and the generation of clean and inexpensive energy are regarded as keys to ongoing development 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 characterised by relentless change.
