We have started another exciting term with the Global Architecture and Design program!

As usual, during the Orientation all the students attended informative sessions about health, safety and academic requirements, among other topics. One of the most exciting moments of the students’ first day is when they meet for the first time the families with whom they will live during the semester. Look at Aria, Crystal, Melissa and Sarah with their host families!

The students were equally eager to start going to class. The semester began with an Digital Tools intensive workshop, taught by Aldo Sollazzo. For four days, students made their first steps in parametric architecture, developing parametrically designed 3d models by using Rhinoceros3d and plug-in Grasshopper. On the last day of the workshop, students printed their models using an Ultimaker 3d printer. The final output of the workshop was quite impressive!Gad1

Shortly after, they began working on their Future Cities Design Studio projects. Accompanied by IaaC faculty, one of the first days of class they visited the site for their projects, the mouth of the Besós River. Inspired by the river and the beautiful coastline of the city, they started with some form-finding exercises. We can’t wait to see how their projects unfold!
