Atlas on Density
In July 2011 two leading independent schools of architecture, the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture, Chicago, and IE School of Architecture, Madrid/Segovia, joined forces to launch the IE/IIT Summer School in Madrid, one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities. The intensive 8-day studio-based design workshop opened to enthusiastic Architecture undergraduate and master students worlwide. Using Madrid as a laboratory, participants explored the architectural, urban, and environmental implications of density. Tutors from Chicago, Madrid, and Singapore, used their own metropolitan backgrounds to enrich the potential evolution of Spain's capital.
