The event was open to all students from IE. Additionally they could bring both their partners and friends. The group however was limited to 25 people in order for the guide to be able to clearly communicate and deliver the information of the buildings and the city.
The guide was one of our team members, María Luisa de Miguel, an architect and current student of the MIM program.
An explanation of the four most important art museums of the city of Madrid took place. These are: The Thyssen Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, the Prado Museum, the Caixa Forum Museum. All of them located in what is known as the triangle of art. The urbanism of the area, especially the development of the Castellana Street was also given in order for the participant to have a better understanding of the city of Madrid
The combination of these four buildings covers different approaches to architecture and diverse examples of how an expansion of a building can be done.
The intention of this event was to help students understand the city they have been living or will live for a minimum period of a year. Madrid has many interesting buildings to offer and is known for many of its architecture. Like all or our events, it is always a great way to do “networking” while getting more involved in the culture of Spain and the city of Madrid.
The event took place on Saturday, the 9th of November, during the morning from 11:00 till 14:00.
