A COLLECTIVE PROJECT
EMERGING FROM CIVIL SOCIETY
On September 11, 2001, a large group of professionals was invited to discuss and reach a consensus on an effective strategy that would bring society and contemporary architecture closer together, encouraging public awareness and the practice of an architecture that, in keeping with our times, would also be steeped in values.
During the meeting, they were informed, in real time, of the attacks on the World Trade Center that were taking place in New York. Still unaware of the historical significance of the collapse of those outstanding examples of contemporary architecture -which would alter the world to this day- they agreed to constitute the Fundación Arquitectura Contemporánea (Contemporary Architecture Foundation).
Since then, and from Cordoba (Spain), although without geographical or disciplinary limitation, it promotes a cultural change in the citizenship, encouraging the knowledge and social recognition of architecture, a determining factor in our life quality.
More than 20 years later and maintaining its full independence, it continues as a collective project at society's service, capable of aligning professionals, organizations, institutions, groups and citizens.
