Ten oncampus courses (morning sessions) taught in English specializing in the following areas:

Voids & Condensers. Updating Heritage Areas (MAD/Spain) WORKSHOP + FIELD TRIP

Cities or villages, being accumulators built of people, are places full of opportunities for intervention. The main objective will be the detection and analysis of these hidden nodes as a complex and multifaceted magma of material and immaterial elements. A view of architecture, not only as building but also looking at flows that activate habitat spaces, public spaces, sociability spaces, exchange spaces, political spaces, everyday life spaces, ambiguity spaces, contradictory spaces or intermediate spaces. All of them are nodes of opportunity from which to operate. The summer workshop entitled Opportunity nodes; alludes to a semantic paradox: the public space as a place of negotiation, spontaneous social representations, tribunes for demonstrations and demands, scenarios that can be reprogrammed according to circumstances, temporary supports for citizens’ movements, urban showcases of contradictory society, accumulators of layers of collective memory.

GEOTHERMAL ENERGY: driving force behind economic recovery and the transformation of future buildings to promote energy saving by users in the fight against climate change

Geothermal energy is a heat energy situated under the Earth’s surface. It is one of the most efficient renewable energies and can be harnessed anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This course addresses geothermal energy within the strategy of near-zero energy buildings and positive energy districts.

Clean Energy

The shift to Clean Energy technologies is urgent in order to limit climate change.Renewable energy sources (solar, wind, biomass,…) will be the core of our energy system, and a number of technological challenges should be addressed to ease the transition.

Dates  04/07, 05/07 & 08/07
Schedule 9:15 – 13:00

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence refers to intelligence that allows machines to emulate intelligent behavior or to do things that, most of the time, people do better. AI technologies have a major impact on our daily activities in business, as individuals, and as a society.

Patchwork City

Cities are made of several pieces from different periods and origins. By using multiple strategies, this workshop explores the concept of circularity as a wide field to find new and unexpected solutions to the development of future cities. In an abstract environment, the students will define a new reality by adapting and modifying already built objects. As architects dealing with preexistences. Concepts such as size, stability, in-between spaces, and drawing and construction techniques will be considered, in a hands-on workshop experience.

Dates 18/07 – 29/07
Schedule 8:30 – 14:30
Director Jesús Ulargui
