July 8-9, The Spanish Group is collaborating with the Escuela Politécnica de Ingeniería de Gijón in the 2ª Conferencia de Dinámica Estructural, to be held on July 8-9, 2020, in Gijón, Spain. More info (Spanish):

For the third year in a row, the Spanish Group collaborates with the SoA (School of Architecture) in Princeton University in its annual field trip to Spain, where students and professors could enjoy the Spanish culture, structural engineering and architecture. During one week in November 2019 they visited Madrid, Granada, and Córdoba. The trip included the visit to the Alhambra in Granada, the Cordoba Mosque as well as emblematic buildings and structures of Madrid. One of the most important visits was the always essential La Zarzuela Hippodrome and the Eduardo Torroja Museum. At the Princeton University School of Architecture, Spanish architecture and engineering are tremendously respected and widely studied. Last summer the Dean of the SoA (School of Architecture) Princeton University, Professor Monica Ponce de Leon, also visited La Zarzuela Hippodrome and the Eduardo Torroja Museum along with her family on a lightning visit, being highly surprised at the extreme quality and fineness of Eduardo Torroja's work.

The Spanish Group of IABSE has organized, in collaboration with the Civil Engineering School, University Castilla-La Mancha, and the Castilla-La Mancha branch of the Professional Association of Spanish Civil Engineers, the exhibition “The resistant act and its poetics. Contemporary Spanish Engineering (1964-2014)” at the train station in Ciudad Real (more info). It was exhibited for the first time in September 2014 in Madrid at the Palace of Cibeles (more info). This exhibition offers a visual landscape that invites to a photographic experience of the most representative works of Spanish structural engineering for the last 50 years.

April 25 -
 The Spanish Group of IABSE and University CEU San Pablo organised a Lecture: Engineering + Art + Architecture by William Baker & Mark Sarkisian. William Baker and Mark Sarkisian (SOM) managed to explain during their lecture Engineering + Art + Architecture the SOM approach to design (three main attributes in their buildings: simplicity, structural clarity, and sustainability); their aesthetic and technical values (they are the same, it is not just engineering, it is an engineering philosophy) and how they research to explore new structural concepts that can lead to new architecture, inspiring the audience and advising future generations of designers about the most important issues on their education (to know how to draw in order to be able to understand the problem, to know the past, their history, and to know the theory of structures, engineering mechanics, and the behavior of materials in depth).

July 2017 - The ‘Practische Studie’ Association of the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Delft University of Technology and the Spanish Group of IABSE organised a technical and cultural visit to Spain. It was held in July 2017, and about 45 students and professors from TU Delft University visited the cities of Bilbao, Madrid, Salamanca, and San Sebastian, their more important and interesting structures and their culture. 'Practische Studie’, first got in touch with IABSE two years ago. It was due to a small visit to Switzerland, more..
