2014 CAE Spring Conference
The Value of Design: Enhancing Education Through Architecture
April 27 - 30, 2014, Barcelona, Spain


Welcome Message from the Planning Committee

The CAE Spring conference will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 27 through 30th. Our 2014 theme – the Value of Design – finds ample expression in Barcelona where design and designers are celebrated. Whereas last year’s amazing conference in San Francisco focused on design thinking and technology, the 2014 conference will underscore the influence of culture, art, and history on the design of places for learning. Why Barcelona? The post Franco era in Spain allowed the re-emergence of regionalism, and Catalonia, of which Barcelona is the heart, responded enthusiastically. With a robust economy by southern European standards, Mediterranean coastline, and rich architectural heritage, Barcelona is a thriving city with a unique design sensibility. One focus of the Catalonian emergence is the education of their children, as they embarked on an ambitious program of creating learning environments to provide that for that education. They utilized design competitions to select Architects, resulting in a large number of innovative and creative learning environments. The CAE 2014 Conference will provide as broad a sampling of these stunning buildings as possible, as well as glimpsing a couple of well known architectural gems. Don’t miss it!
