dear students

With the purpose of broadening your experience and understanding of the diversity of architecture practice and the contemporary new roles of our profession here in Barcelona, we have prepared a series of lectures and visits for you to participate in.

You will be required to attend and actively participate in at least three of these lectures as a part of your history/theory seminar.

You are welcome to attend all five if you would like.
