IE School of Architecture & Design grows in unesco heritage city

 

Located in the center of the UNESCO World Heritage city, the new campus will enhance the integration of students and teachers with the local community. Goodman emphasized the campus’s role in fostering collaboration: ‘Our students, from all over the world, will work in collaboration with companies, cultural institutions, and NGOs. The Creative Campus will be open to the city.’ Currently, IE students and professors are actively engaged in Segovia through the D-Lab, designing, manufacturing, and assembling projects for local schools, public institutions, and civic associations.

 

‘At IE School of Architecture & Design, we want to build a fairer, more beautiful and more sustainable world through the creative industries. It fills us with immense joy to know we will soon have a new space in Segovia, our Creative Campus, in a building of the stature of the Palacio de los Condes de Mansilla. This new space will promote creativity and take advantage of synergies between various disciplines,’ adds David Goodman, Dean of IE School of Architecture and Design.

highlighting the university’s commitment to education

 

The Palacio de los Condes de Mansilla, built between the 12th and 18th centuries and restored in the 1970s, is a part of Segovia’s Historic-Artistic Heritage. This architectural gem, located just meters from the Plaza Mayor, combines Romanesque and Mudejar elements with stunning stone arches and vaulted spaces. The building, which once housed the Domingo de Soto University College, will undergo extensive rehabilitation to prepare it for its new role as a hub of creativity and innovation.

 

‘The new Creative Campus reflects IE University’s strong commitment to education, research, and innovation. This unique space brings together centuries of history in Segovia and will soon be equipped with technological solutions applied to architecture and design. The Creative Campus will facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and the work of our students, who come from 160 countries, and of our professors and researchers with companies, cultural institutions, and NGOs, locally and internationally,’ highlights Salvador Carmona, Rector of IE University.
