Last week students in the Global AD program in Barcelona presented this semester’s work: proposals for the future transformation of the Besòs river of Barcelona.

The review stage included 1 to 1, 1 to 100, 1 to 500, 1 to 1000 and 1 to 2000 scale documents, models and materials.  Presentations included videos, animations and digital assets and processes while students’ prototypes showed a combination of advanced technological methods: laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC milling and Arduino.Gad_news3_3

Along with their studio instructors (Antonio Sanmartín and Javier Peña), students were happy to have several guest critics: Maria Aiolova (Global AD Academic Director), Jaime Coll (Professor at ETSAB-UPC), Areti Markopoulou (Director, IAAC Masters Programs) and Silvia Brandi (IAAC Academic Coordinator) who provided them with additional reviews and feedback.Gad_news3_9


It was a wonderful conclusion to the inaugural semester of the program and we’re all looking forward to the Fall Global AD program!
