Conference Site

The conference will take place in the main Auditorium of the Faculty of Media Studies

Avenida de Castelao, Santiago de Compostela, 15782

This is one of the two buildings that the well-known architect Álvaro Siza undertook  in Santiago de Compostela. It is located in the North Campus of the University of Santiago de Compostela and was built in the period 1993-1999.


The Faculty of Media Studies consists of a long axial section, to which a series of volumes, such as the library or main lecture hall, are connected perpendicularly. This layout provides an ambiguous and poetical spatial richness, which is characteristic of Siza's work. Especially memorable is the sequence of the entrance, below the library volume, supported by a single eccentric leg, or the interior ramp, open towards the atrium leading to the different lecture rooms. Even the smallest details of the building's installations were designed by the architect, from the benches in the lecture rooms to the door handles or the signs for the gents and ladies toilets. This fact makes this educational building a notable example of a complete work of art of contemporary architecture.
