Jorge Magaz-Molina

PhD candidate
University of Alcala. School of Architecture
Participates in 1 Session

Architect. PhD candidate (FPI fellowship) in the School of Architecture at the University of Alcalá [UAH](Madrid, Spain). 

I am member of the "Architecture, History, City and Landscape" Research Group of the University of Alcalá. I'm involved in the research project "The image of the National Institute of Industry in Spain: Cartography and Industry Landscape" funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. (Ref. PGC2018-095261-B-C22) 
 

I focus my research work on the study of the mining-industrial legacy in the face of the current reconversion processes and on evaluating industrial landscapes. 

I have participated in more than a dozen conferences and seminars in Spain, Portugal and Italy related to industrial heritage, including Docomomo Ibérico, Icomos - Spain, TICCIH-Portugal and INCUNA. 
I have coordinated several seminars about the valorization of industrial mining heritage for local development at the Associated Centre of the National University of Distance Education (UNED) in Ponferrada, León.
