The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are a large and active group of over 10,000 architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities that promote lifelong learning in safe, welcoming and equitable environments. The CAE’s mission is to foster innovative and collaborative design of educational facilities and to heighten public awareness on the importance of learning environments.
The Self Sufficient City competition is emblematic of the emerging debate over the shape of our cities. By the year 2050, more than 70% of humanity will live in a city. The IaaC believes that global harmony is achieved through the right interaction of people, city and planet. Spain and Barcelona have a long tradition of rich urban environments, furthered in the last decades under a new democratic government.
