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.
