The Barcelona Architecture Center provides optional field studies courses, depending on the preferences of each partner university. The travel destinations in past include places within Spain such as Madrid, Toledo, Bilbao and San Sebastian, or other European cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Potsdam and Dessau. With such proximity to a rich architectural and urban environment, the possibilities are endless. The BAC has experienced professors available who can give expert insight on the destination cities, their monuments, history and architectural traditions.

Spring 2017 Madrid and Toledo

Some postcards from out travel to Madrid and Toledo with groups from Texas A&M, Clemson and Roger Williams Universities students.

 

Past Monday, one of the visits  was at Arquitectura Viva headquarters. Luis Fernández-Galiano, director of one of the most prestigious European architecture magazine received us and shared with our students secrets of their magazine.
We wish to see our students professional works published here in the near future.

Many thanks Luis Fernández-Galiano, Cuca Flores and all Arquitectura Viva team for this wonderful visit and everyone else and who has received us in their studios, centers and who made part of this trip!
