Abstract
This paper aims to analyse current people’s perception regarding concrete shell structures located in the main campus of the University of Puebla, in central Mexico. We are interested in knowing the perception of building academics and architecture and engineering students concerning the use, value and current conditions of concrete shells. This will help us to understand what actions can be taken to preserve those structures, and what factors should be considered during the design of new spatial structures.
