Course guide

The studio aims to address intervention projects in the built environment based on a real-life case study within Barcelona metropolitan area, through hands-on student teamwork. The first part involves the analysis and diagnosis of the case – continuing the work of the first semester – and the second part focuses on the development of strategic and intervention proposals. Regular feedback with first-semester faculty and representatives of public institutions is scheduled.

Regular reviews, public discussions, and lectures – about the studio topics, reference cases or complementary know-how – are scheduled in the afternoon. Students dispose of an atelier for the development of the project throughout the day.
