Architecture for People

IESE’s campus in Madrid is expanding with a building of 16,000 square-meters, at the same location of other buildings, in the Aravaca area. It is the outskirts of the capital and is well-connected.

Thanks to this expansion, available space for teaching and research will double, reaching 16,000 square meters built, amid spacious gardens. Moreover, the parking facilities will be expanded to include 300 places in total.

The new building will have an auditorium, five classrooms and 17 workrooms, all with the capability of adapting to different teaching needs, designed with a priority on graduate programs.

Sol Madridejos and Juan Carlos Sancho

The architecture firm SMAO is leading the project. Sol Madridejos and Juan Carlos Sancho Osinaga, who hold doctorates in architecture from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid, comprise the firm.

Juan Carlos Sancho Osinaga is Professor of Architectural Projects at the ETSA Madrid since 1990. And Sol Madridejos has been Professor of Projects at the Universidad Europea UEM and at the San Pablo Ceu in Madrid.

Sancho Madridejos has demonstrated, throughout its trajectory, versatility in the execution of buildings that have the people who use them as the primary focus: business centers, civic centers, residential complexes, chapels, libraries, modern art museums and lofts. The Madrid firm broke ground on the IESE Foundation’s project to expand the Madrid campus in 2012.
