REFLECTIONS AFTER THE END OF THE WORLD

In the context of the the Future Cities Design Studio, the students had the opportunity to do a site visit to the exhibition "After the End of the World" at the CCCB. During the exhibition, CIEE students had an immersive experience on how the earth of 2017 has irreversibly transformed into the Anthropocene planet after two centuries of human impact on natural systems. It was an exhibition about how we will reach the world of the latter half of the 21st century, and about our society‚Äôs responsibility to the generations who will be born and grow up in it. The result was a hypnotic and startling experience, that on the one hand exposes the traumas caused by the magnitude of the crisis and on the other speaks of the opportunity for change and of the pressing need for an intergenerational pact.

Sketching Abroad

One of the most valuable experiences for an architecture student while abroad is the prospect of appreciating some of the highlights of the history of architecture on-site and then sketching them. Sketching may be a good way to better understand architecture, shapes, colors and proportions. Rohan, from CalPoly San Luis Obispo, spent last semester in Rome where he worked extensively on his sketches. Of course, now in Barcelona, he is still improving his technique and getting the most out of his experience in the city. In fact, Rohan spent some time sketching during our weekend trip to Valencia at the end of February. For now, have a look at his drawings from Valencia! More sketches from Barcelona will be included in the next newsletter.

Enjoyed reading the post and looking at the visuals.

Hope that we all can rise up to meet the challenges that lie ahead in leaving behind a better planet than what we have inherited.

The sketches depicting the contrasting architecture of the past and future are an apt inclusion in this context.

Looking forward to the next edition.
