School architecture, no longer university architecture, is one of the architectural fields in which the stylistic and formal evolution of architecture in a country can best be perceived. On the one hand, because it has been, and continues to be, one of the fields of the constructive task in which there has been a continuous need for action and work, which has been carried out even in the social situations of greatest economic crisis. At the same time, it is a field in which functional changes have not usually been profound, decisive or rapid. Thus, we are faced with a type of architecture that allows us to compare and analyze the stylistic and material architectural innovations; as well as the advances and setbacks, orthodoxy, heterodoxy, rigor or eclectic ambiguity of architects, states and territories, given the permanence of the type and the continuity over time of the exercise of this type of architecture.

To establish a category within this field, we would have to distinguish school architecture that we could call childhood, that of primary schools, kindergartens, etc..., from that which is closer to the university environment, as could be the institutes and colleges, usually equipped with complementary facilities (laboratories, libraries, more sports facilities...) not present in the former; although in many cases both can coexist within the same building or group of buildings, forming a unit.

Thus, in order to somehow establish sections within the call of this congress, we will point out these two categories:

  1. Nurseries, schools and child education establishments.

  2. Colleges, institutes and educational centers for youth.
