The BAC is an organization chaired by Miguel Roldán, which offers academic stays in Barcelona to foreign architecture schools. It was created with the aim of developing academic and research collaborations with other universities and higher education institutions across the globe. We are continually building an international network between universities to develop architectural research projects in common. This network includes new partners every year from a variety of geographical areas, as we are especially interested in focusing on local and global points of view.

Over the last 14 years our program directors have had many different experiences in organizing innovative workshops, such as FAST and Groundcontrol, programs devised with the intention of training young Catalan and Dutch architects in the frame of European urban and landscape design tendencies.We have kept exchange programs with: ITESM, Monterrey, México from 2002-2008, Texas A&M University, USA since 2000, Clemson University, USA since 1999, the University of Texas at San Antonio | UTSA 2008-2009 Université de Montréal, Canada, 2003-2006, the Universidad Iberoamericana de México, 2001. The BAC has reached a number of over 1000 students since its foundation.Currently, we are collaborating with several American and Asian universities. This year we welcomed a group of Japanese students from the Shibaura Institute, Chiba University, Tama Art University, Toyo University, Tokyo University of Arts, Kyoto University of Art & Design, Hosei Uni-versity and Tokyo University of Science.

Spring 2019 video

.. We are asked many times to explain what we do at the BAC… The best way to explain what we do is to ask our students to explain it. Our wonderful architect (former grad student from Texas A&M) Roxy Treviño, showed it in this video..

Thank you Roxy for the beautiful video and special thanks to our wonderful and talented actors/architects from the Spring 2019 semester from Texas A&M University, Clemson University and Roger Williams University!
