On Friday, IAAC welcomed Fernando de Porras-Isla for an open lecture in the IAAC Auditorium. Porras-Isla discussed the “River Manzanares Project” which is a big scale project for the people of Madrid which increases the quality of everyday life by connecting natural landscape with the urban environment.

He is co-author of the ”Landscaping of the Banks of the River Manzanares Project” in Madrid, covering a surface area of 120 hectares, built between 2006 and 2011. He recently received the Biannual Architecture Prize, awarded by the Association of Architects of Cantabria, for the design of the San Felices de Buelna sports centre (2010).

    Creo que es un proyecto muy poco conocido y de un alcance extraordinario. Cualquier persona que vaya a Madrid debe visitarlo, cuando yo estado he quedado absolutamente impresionado. Está lleno de gente, de ciclistas, de turistas, de niños… creo que ha cambiado muchos barrios de la ciudad. Enhorabuena a Porras-Isla
