We started another semester of GAD Program with a great group of 9 students! After the Orientation days, they all were very enthusiastic to begin their classes at CIEE and at the program’s host institution, the IaaC.

The academic program started at the IaaC with a Fabrication workshop taught by  Rodrigo Aguirre, as well as a Digital Tools workshop with Aldo Sollazzo and Efilena Baseta. For a few intensive days, students did some form-finding experiments, and they also made their first steps with parametric architecture using Rhinoceros3d and plug-in Grasshopper.

Together with IaaC faculty, they went on on site visits to the Besós River area, the site where of their studio projects. They also visited some relevant and inspirational projects, such as the MediaTIC building (with  Mila Moscalenko) and the Superilla Project. 


The first month of the program ended with short progress reviews of  the studio projects, with instructors Maite Bravo and Maria Kuptsova. There was a large amount of  brainstorming and planning the project's future development!
