 The Global Architecture + Design group, in Copenhagen

 academic trip to copenhagen

As usual, Global Architecture + Design students keep working hard on their projects, focused on the sustainability of the cities of the future. Cory, from Colorado College, tells us about his (and his team’s) project: the “AlGaudí tile”, that uses algae to purify the city air while also providing a “soft element” to the urban setting.  

Cory also tells us about the weekend trip that the Barcelona Global AD students, along with their Academic Coordinator, did to Copenhagen two weeks ago. In Denmark, they met with students and Academic Coordinators in the Global AD programs from Berlin and Prague. They presented their projects to each other and they did quite a few academic (and fun!) activities. Biking around the city was without a doubt a favorite for everyone!

IAAC VALLDAURA CAMPUS VISIT

Finally, we want to share with you images and impressions of an excursion that has already become a classic for the program: a visit to IaaC’s Green Fab Lab in Valldaura, on the hills overlooking Barcelona. Besides enjoying the natural scenery, students were able to realize the potential of 3D printing with natural materials. Again, Cory tells us everything about it.
