Professional Area / Calls

ICO Grants

WorkshopsICO Foundation

The Arquia Foundation and the ICO Foundation have announced 75 places for architecture students and young architects with the aim of holding five 'workshops' at the ICO Museum.

The places are intended to give candidates the option of complementing the knowledge acquired during their training through 'workshops' organised by the ICO Foundation.

2014 Call

The 'workshops' will be held within the framework of the exhibition 'The Architect is Present', curated by Luis Fernández-Galiano / Arquitectura Viva.


  • Application
  • Architecture students and young architects with Spanish nationality or citizens with a Spanish residence permit who, on the closing date of applications, have obtained a minimum of 60% of the credits required to qualify as architects from a Spanish School of Architecture and who are enrolled for the 2013/2014 academic year at a Spanish School of Architecture; and architects who obtained their degree from a Spanish School of Architecture after 1 January 2010.
    To ensure adequate geographic distribution of the 75 places for the 'workshops', the number of valid entries will be weighted proportionally by school and application mode.


  • Academic transcript
  • Candidates will be selected according to their academic transcript. This is assessed by the average mark obtained in degree subjects passed, as well as by the average mark obtained in design project modules passed (for this purpose, all modules that come under the department of architectural projects shall be taken into consideration). These average marks will be calculated by the applicant, as specified in Annex I of the requirements and shall be recorded in the registration on the page, to be sent online.

    When registering, you must also enclose:

    a copy of your ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPT,

    a copy of your DNI/NIE,

    a copy of your last ENROLMENT or your DEGREE in .pdf format,

    a copy of your level of ENGLISH certificate,

    and your CV.
