Students must enroll in ARCH 574
Students from ISoA will travel to Barcelona for a one-week Joint Intensive Workshop where they will work together with MBLandArch students at UPC in the same urban landscape project and site in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area.
Students in Europe and in the US will intersect and work together in mixed and multidisciplinary teams (Architecture and Landscape Architecture) in this Intensive International Workshop to:
a) be able to experience and learn from the site in person;
b) get a close insight on Barcelona’s architectural and landscape design culture, and
c) have the opportunity to engage and interact with practitioners, city technicians and communities in situ.
This in person workshop will even increase the highly successful pedagogical experience both programs had with the Joint Intensive Workshop held online in Spring 2020, which granted myself with the 2021 FAA Excellence in Teaching Award.
Topic & Site
The Barcelona International Intensive workshop aims to redesign spaces generated by mobility infrastructures to restore the disrupted continuities between people and its urban and natural landscapes.  
As previous Studios of mine, the course focuses on designing fabrics and public spaces to reconnect segregated neighborhoods and urban and landscape fabrics, tackling on social and urban sustainability, and on landscape identity and collective memory aspects.
The project selection is the result of the partnership between MBLandArch | UPC and AMB (Area Metropolitana de Barcelona).  Thus, the course has the opportunity to participate in the discussions and in the making of the landscape design strategies for a real project currently under study aiming to promote the integral and sustainable development of cities in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area.  
Through invited lectures, project discussions and participatory exercises, students and professors will reflect on the increasing complexity of public space and the agency and roles of the disciplines that design it. Urbanists, architects and landscape architects–from policy-makers to practitioners and academics–will bring some light to these new spatial-functional and disciplinary scenarios in the lectures that will be provided to the students during the workshop.
