Barcelona is one of the most important hubs in the Mediterranean for international students, entrepreneurs and multinationals.

La Salle Campus Barcelona is a founding member of the Ramon Llull University, with majors in Management, Computer Engineering, ICT Organization, Art, Design and Technology, Architecture and Construction Engineering.

The 12th Edition of La Salle-URL Architecture Workshop wants students to reflect on the knowledge of the city, both at the urban and architectural level, to design an architecture that will last in time, and understand the traditional architectural solutions of conceptual and formal quality in relation to the place, climate, material, and environment. 

The material character of the construction of architecture is relevant in the history of architecture. Catalan modernism elevates tradition and, for the first time, highlights the patents of new technologies that coexist between the traditional and the modern. Antoni Gaudí carried out, without consciously or deliberately proposing it, a synthesis between the most orthodox tradition and the most radical experimentalism, born of creative independence and a vision that arose on the margins of contemporary conventions.

The Casa Milà building "La Pedrera" (1906-1912) summarizes the freest creativity, what we can consider the most unexpected invention. It will be difficult to find an architectural work that offers an image and spaces that project, together with the fulfilment of the functional needs inherent to this art, a vision that transcends, like this one, the architectural. The workshop will allow us to understand this transition of the architecture of the early twentieth century.

The program is aimed at students to improve their skills and to apply them to the project they will carry out during the program.

Practical sessions are also included with studies and companies in the field in order to reinforce some concepts and share good practices.

The program will be carried out as long as the minimum number of places required is reached, and the sanitary measures allow it on the date.
