Who we are
Institut Cerdà is a private independent foundation established in 1984 as an initiative of a group of Civil Engineers in Catalonia, led by Pedro Duran Farell, to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the approval of the Cerdà Plan (for the urban development of Barcelona).
Our founding purpose is to "contribute to the promotion of innovation and the on-going revitalization of society through appropriate approaches in the field of spatial planning, environment, research, development and innovation, information technology, culture and in the various sectors of the economy" exploiting the rigor and the objectivity that our independent position allows.
