Ailyn Penton Ansia and Daniel Muñoz Cedeño have started their training at The Prince’s Foundation summer school in London thanks to the partnership work of Soane’s Foundation, Prince’s Foundation, Ludwig Foundation and the British Council in Cuba.

They will take advantage of this course and acquire knowledge of contemporary trends in architecture and its dynamic relationship with the preservation of local heritages. The course also includes an important set of visits to museums and specialized institutions, such as meetings with well known architects and firms such as David Chipperfield, David Adjaye, Norman Foster (architect) and Peter Inskip, among others.

In September Aylin and Daniel will share their professional experiences with young Cuban specialists take will take part in an open exchange organised by the British Council.
