The aim of this Team Building event is to do exactly that: Build as a team!

In recent times Architects such as César Pelli, Norman Foster, Richard Rogers and Herzog & de Meuron have managed to transform the city with their contemporary architecture, turning it into a city where the new buildings and the old, remodeled constructions have become the icons of the Spanish capital.
Inspired by this wealth of talent such innovation we have devised: The Madrid Architect and Builders Challenge in which the aim is to do exactly that: Build as a team! You will receive a short introductory talk from our local expert, who will show you a few examples of both traditional and modern Madrid archtecture and explain the principals and philosophies surrounding them.
Each team will then be set 3 challenge:
The Tower:
Using only basic accessories such as cardboard, tubing, wooden sticks and 1 block of plasticine, the particiipants will try and recreate Phillip Johnson and John Burgee’s famous twin towers, located in plaza Castilla.
The Bridge:
Using among other things cocktail sticks, cardboard tubing and marshmallows, who can best recreate Dominique Perrault’s famous pedrestrian bridge over the river Manzanares?
The Strongest Team:
Using a combination of the previous materials, who can make the strongest bridge which spans a distance of at least 1 metre?
Your tutor/s will be on hand throughout the day to assist you with different technical ideas and ultimately push your structures to their limit! We are also very careful to re-cycle all the materials used during the activity.
