Since 2017, the Foundation’s Education and Research Units have conducted a series of workshops, atelier, research initiatives and Public Debates where students and professionals from all over the world come together for a week of experimental work and research.

The Foundation’s Education and Research Units are delighted to announce the first edition of the Re-materializing Housing Workshop that will take place from 23-27 March 2020, in Madrid, Spain, and will explore new opportunities that combine vernacular architecture techniques with emerging technologies.

The Foundation will award ten scholarships to students from the diverse backgrounds of architecture, arts and humanities, sustainability, technology and materials. Grants will cover all transportation, accommodation and meals related to the week-long event in Madrid, Spain. Scholars will engage with an interdisciplinary Academic Body formed by mentors ranging from industry professionals to academics.
