Building Events in 2019

International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering – ICAADE, Warsaw, Poland

13 – 16 October 2019

The third International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering will be held at the Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland from October 13 to 16, 2019.

ICAADE is an international conference covering issues of the built environment on the borderline between land and water.

Scientific conference held every two years on a different continent and is dedicated to interdisciplinary issues regarding the boundaries of water and land by use of architecture, design and engineering.

ICAADE aims is to bring together practitioners, researchers, authorities, students, NGO’s, communities and investors in the exchange of knowledge and practice on amphibious issues. Architecture, design and engineering are the result of long-lasting social, economic and technological progress and pathways. We need multidisciplinary perspectives on shifting the boundaries of water and land.

These perspectives can support the identification of open questions, market potentials, acceptance and engagement, and flood risk mitigation and climate change adaptation.

Special Keynote speakers include:
Koen Olthuis, founder of Waterstuodio.NL, author Float: Building on Water to Combat Urban Congestion and Climate Change. (

Richard Coutts, the Team Principal at Baca Architects. Baca is an award-winning, research-led design practice specializing in integrated environmental and high-quality design, author Aquatecture. Buildings and Cities Designed to Live and Work with Water (

How to achieve balance in Northern Poblenou, Barcelona

The UIC Barcelona School of Architecture rethinks the concept of the “22@ district” twenty years after its initial creation and presents new proposals in the old factory in Poblenou, Ca l’Alier

UIC Barcelona School of Architects Exhibition

The proposals put forward by UIC Barcelona School of Architecture students for the Northern part of Poblenou are included in an exhibition that can be visited in the old factory in Poblenou, Ca l’Alier.

The overarching theme of the projects is the need to rethink the concept of the “22@ district” twenty years after it was implemented by Barcelona City Council.

Some of the improvements suggested by students include the provision of council-owned housing, creating new green spaces and increasing pedestrian areas.

Barcelona 18 July 2019. The Final Degree Project Exhibition consisting of projects created by UIC Barcelona School of Architecture students and entitled “22@_What? How to achieve balance in Northern Poblenou, Barcelona” opened on the 18th of July at 6 p.m. in the old textile factory in Poblenou, Ca l’Alier. In this exhibition, a total of 10 architecture students present new urbanistic and architectural proposals for an area that began its metamorphosis at the beginning of the year 2000: The origins of this transformation can be found in the initial proposal that involved the creation of a “compact city model” including housing, facilities and high quality green areas to “work, live and learn in”.

The ten projects that make up the “22@_What? How to achieve balance in Northern Poblenou, Barcelona” exhibition were created by final year UIC Barcelona School of Architecture students. Divided into three workshops led by architects from the school Iñaki Baquero, Marta García-Orte, Mamen Domingo and Dr Ernest Ferré, the students revisited the 22@Barcelona Plan to provide a response to issues raised 20 years after this Plan was initially set out through their own architectural and urbanistic projects.
