The president and founder of the Metrópoli Foundation, Alfonso Vegara, within the framework of the institutional visit of the Kings of Spain to Copenhagen (Denmark), has presented the Innovation Lab, made up of MWCC and the Community of Madrid, within a global debate about the cities of the future.

In an institutional event, Danish and Spanish representatives met to discuss issues related to architecture, design and urban innovation.

Eva Ravnborg, market director in Denmark at Henning Larsen Architects, and Alfonso Vegara, founder and president of the Metropoli Foundation shared their experiences and knowledge at the event.

Both countries face similar challenges in terms of the need for affordable housing, biodiversity and the use of fewer natural resources in construction. The discussions touched on critical points such as the need for accessible housing, the integration of biodiversity and the reduction in the use of natural resources.

Urban innovation: the case of Madrid Innovation Lab

In a presentation that captured the attention of everyone present, Alfonso Vegara highlighted the initiative of the Madrid Innovation Lab, a project made up of MWCC and the Community of Madrid and that represents an avant-garde leap in the conception of urban spaces in Spain. This ideas laboratory seeks to merge cutting-edge technology with urban planning to develop intelligent solutions that respond to the complex dynamics of the Spanish capital.

Madrid Innovation Lab not only symbolizes Spanish creativity and ingenuity, but also stands as a role model in the transformation of cities into innovative and sustainable ecosystems.

Towards the city of tomorrow

If something became clear during the event, it was the fact that the discussion about the future of cities widely transcends the traditional limits of architecture and urban planning. It is not a conversation limited to the offices of builders or the work tables of urban planners; It is a dialogue that involves the entire society (politicians, educators, businessmen, environmental activists and citizens). Everyone is called to contribute and take an active part in the design of a future that promises to harmonize technical advances and human progress with respect and care for the natural environment.

It is in this melting pot of ideas and shared efforts that the urban future takes root in the present, nourishing itself from innovative and visionary projects such as the Madrid Innovation Lab. These initiatives are not merely examples of good practices or isolated experiments in intelligent design; They have become true beacons whose light guides and clears the horizon towards which our collective efforts must be directed.
