This summer program will study architectural projects in its urban context, taking into consideration, not only morphological aspects, but also its socio-political and historical background. Students will learn to observe architecture and to explore different means of representing it by including and abstracting all the different layers, traces, and stories that influenced the design, construction and current life of a great number of case studies. Theoretical classes will be combined with field trips, visits to renowned architecture studios and colloquiums around diverse design issues. Throughout the course, students will develop a travel portfolio where they will take notes, draw and photograph different projects in the cities of Madrid, Bilbao, San Sebastian and Pamplona. At the end of each week, they will generate a series of panels focused on 3 cities/questions during full-day workshops.
