As a member of the National Architecture Accrediting Board (NAAB), I frequently travel to architecture schools across the country to evaluate their programs and ensure they meet the highest standards. There are some international schools that are seeking substantial equivalency accreditation from NAAB  and I was fortunate enough to be assigned to 2 schools in Madrid, the Universidad Europea de Madrid and Universida Politecnica de Madrid. We spent most of our time there working, but I was able to have some fun and get some great photos. Here is a shot of the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid (COAM). COAM is similar to the American Institute of Architects.
