The Fundación Arquitectura y Sociedad, based in Pamplona and Madrid, promoted, on 5 and 6 July 2011, the programme Arquitectura Ibérica aiming to foster relations between Portugal and Spain in the field of contemporary architectural production. Divided into two parts, both taking place in Valladolid, the meeting consisted of a workshop curated by Jacobo García-Germán and the Reencontros' programme, curated by Ariadna Cantis and organised in partnership with the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.

Reencontros recovered the programmatic content of the Iberian Encounters premiered in 1997 by the architects Álvaro Siza and Rafael Moneo, which aimed to provide young people operating in the area of architecture in both countries, the opportunity to present their projects to be the subject of analysis and sharing of procedures and ideas.

For two days, a group of eleven architects (6 Portuguese and 5 Spanish), critics and teachers of two generations debated proposals presented in a relaxed environment of creative exchange. Nuno Graça Moura, MOOV, Guilherme Machado Vaz, SAMI - Arquitectos, Marta Brandão + Mário Sousa, Tiago Pimentel, Rodrigo, García, SIC, MARGEN - LAB, Uriel Fogué (elii), Javier Larraz were invited to the discussion. Eduardo Souto de Moura, Francisco Mangado, Ariadna Cantis, Jacobo García-Germán and Camilo Rebelo were also invited as critics and provocative agents.

The closing debate of Reencontros was live screened on 6 July at the Triennale headquarters to integrate architecture in this peninsula and bring its authors closer together. The entity continues to be an agent in the promotion of the discipline as an area indissolubly linked to life in society, an objective for which it was created in 2008 by the Spanish architect Francisco Mangado Beloqui.
