About The Speaker
Salvador Moreno Peralta
Salvador Moreno Peralta (1947) is an architect and town planner who graduated from the ETSA in Madrid in 1972 and has spent most of his career in his native Malaga, where he has his studio SMPARQUITECTOS and where he has built his most significant works: The School of Engineering of the UMA, the buildings for the OppPlus headquarters of BBVA, Oracle and Ericsson in the Andalusia Technology Park, the Andalusia Lab in Marbella and the CIO Mijas (Training Centre for Leisure and Tourism Industries) and the refurbishment of the Parador de San Rafael, as the headquarters of Turismo Andaluz. He is currently developing residential projects in Malaga, Torremolinos and Marbella, as well as the El Faro Cultural Centre in Estepona. In 1985 he received the National Town Planning Award for the General Development Plan of Malaga and in 1999 the Europa Nostra Award for the Rehabilitation of the four Fortified Enclosures of Melilla. He has been a member of the Fine Arts Academy of San Telmo and president of the Social Council of the University of Malaga. Author of numerous books and articles in newspapers and specialised magazines, literature and music are his life, but since nothing in urban culture is alien to him, his true passion is the city, to which he has devoted more than fifty years of professional activity.
