ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN, FALL 2016, NEWSLETTER 1
The Fall 16 semester started a few weeks ago, and students are already settled and well adjusted to life in Barcelona. We are not wasting time, and on the third week of the program, Architecture and Design and Global Architecture and Design students went on a joint academic trip to the capital of Spain: Madrid. During the weekend, students enjoyed the wonders of the capital of Spain and they also checked firsthand some of the differences between Barcelona and Madrid. They now understand better the (friendly) rivalry that exists between the two most important cities in Spain!
Natalie, from the Univesity of Virginia, has explained to us her impressions about Madrid. Check it out in this video:
We also want to share with you some pictures of our students during some of the visits that we organized for them, from the two most important art museums in the city (Museo del Prado and Centro Nacional de Arte Reina Sofia) to some off the beaten path visits, such as communal gardens, El Matadero Cultural Center or the Madrid Rio, one of the newest additions to the city.
