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.

Tutors from Chicago, Madrid, and Singapore, used their own metropolitan backgrounds to enrich the potential evolution of Spain's capital.
