To commemorate the landing of the first man on the Moon 50 years ago, a huge image of the astronomical body has enlightened IE’s center of the future in Madrid. Designed by SpY, the ‘Caleido Moon’ has illuminated the skyscraper, which is in the process of being built and will be inaugurated in the academic year 2020-2021. The event initiates a series of artistic actions by SpY that will turn the building into a reference point for lovers of contemporary urban art.

IE’s center of the future, located at the northern end of the Spanish capital’s Castellana main thoroughfare, will be a smart and sustainable building.

IE’s center of the future, located at the northern end of the Spanish capital’s Castellana main thoroughfare, alongside four other imposing skyscrapers, will be a smart and sustainable building with an area of 50,000 square meters distributed over 35 floors and with a capacity of up to 7,000 people. The building will have 70 classrooms, offices, work spaces and unique areas for students to be immersed in the experience of a technological center, to develop their ideas as entrepreneurs and their skills in the humanities. The study center will also have sports and leisure facilities, auditoriums, libraries and more than 7,000 square meters of green space. IE University currently has students from 131 nationalities, and the expansion of the center will help stimulate growth and reactivate the northern districts of Madrid by attracting management talent and providing business opportunities with an international focus.

On the new study center, students will study undergraduate and dual degree programs in the areas of Business Administration, Law, Architecture & Design, Global & Public Affairs and Human Sciences & Technology. Postgraduate programs will be taught at the current installations of IE in María de Molina street, in the financial center of Madrid. IE’s commitment to innovation in the infrastructure of its historic Segovia campus will continue with the goal of providing students with a state-of-the-art learning environment.
