Un new path of investigation between scientific research, humanities and creative knowledge.

In the world of construction, it has been implemented for decades in wonderful structural inventions, which are the result of calculations, measurements, engineering computing applied to beams and pillars. In the new millennium, a new actor has entered the scene: technology – with thousands of different applications, from design to buildings and cities’ management. Structure, technology (and environmental concerns) will intertwine with increasingly less strict boundaries in the future.

The exhibition is divided into two sections that are closely linked. On the one hand, an itinerary of construction engineering as it is traditionally understood, featuring drawings, images, models of structural engineering icons, from the Sydney Opera to Nervi´s masterpiece, from Beaubourg to Lloyds of London. On the other, an immersion in digital culture and technology, with “tangible” experiments on the application of robotics, digital manufacturing, artificial intelligence, big data and environmental engineering.
