  • Urban design

The Consejo Superior de los Colegios de Arquitectos de España (CSCAE), as the driving force behind the UIA 2022 International Forum “Affordable Housing Activation: Removing Barriers”, announced today that Madrid Nuevo Norte, the most important urban regeneration project currently underway in Europe, has become a partner of the UIA 2022 International Forum.

Madrid Nuevo Norte thus joins the global debate on access to housing promoted by the UIA 2022 International Forum and will do so by promoting reflection on the urban, climatic, social, economic, technological, and environmental challenges that arise in the field of sustainable urban development.

In addition, as part of the agreement signed, the digital model of Madrid Nuevo Norte will be installed at the Gran Teatro Príncipe Pío (Madrid), where the in-person edition of the forum will be held from May 18 to 20. The model consists of a reproduction that combines digital technology, through two large format screens, and the physical, using a striking scale model of the project, to show through a careful audiovisual experience all the details of this unique action.

A global movement to move towards a multilateral declaration

More than 60 internationally renowned experts of the stature of Juan Verde, Richard Sennett, Saskia Sassen, Odile Deck, Ben van Berkel, Stefano Boeri, Joan Clos, Paul Karakusevic, Lluis de Mello, Sergio Magalhaes, Sara Topelson and Martha Thorne, and representatives of the world’s leading institutions and organizations will reflect on housing affordability from May 18 to 20 in Madrid, making the Spanish capital the epicenter of the global debate on decent and adequate housing, with the aim of moving towards a Multilateral Declaration.
