On Tuesday 3 December, the Executive Council approved the report prior to processing the draft law for the new Architecture Act, with the aim of getting the new legal text passed by the end of 2014.

The overall objective is to highlight public interest in architecture, ensuring its preservation as a cultural and social asset, and distinguishing it as an essential means of guaranteeing social cohesion and people’s wellbeing by setting quality objectives for all kinds of projects.

The Association has played a key role in pushing through this law, which was announced by the Minister for Territory and Sustainability, Santi Vila, at our headquarters last July. Furthermore, the COAC will be actively involved in the whole process of drafting the law.
