The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is glad to launch another edition of the Global Summer School (GSS21), the 14th edition of the international summer educational program focussing on designing the future of our cities. The programme will take place online from IAAC Barcelona from July 5 through July 29.
The GSS21 offers for this year a unique online platform interconnecting its extraordinary network of faculty, industry collaborators and laboratories in the biggest online educational summer course of 2021.
Since the very first editions, we have been digitally connected, meeting, sharing, learning together in an incredible global environment of innovators and educators.
IAAC decided to launch a novel, flexible model, enriching our digital routes within a new format. The GSS21 will offer 4 online workshops exploring the impact of novel tools in the definition of a new Advanced Architecture at different scales.
The programme is an opportunity for architecture, design, arts students and professionals alike to conduct multi-level investigations on Computational Design, Urban Analytic, Design for Robotics – controlling IAAC robots remotely – and Environmental Design.
This new program will be a celebration of alternative learning models dealing with the challenges of the world transforming our cities, architecture and technology. Each participant can now trace a personal path in this dynamic format, picking a single GSS21 workshop or enrolling for the entire program.
Every module will be run by IAAC faculties, allowing the participants to interact, work and develop projects in a class environment, taking part in Global Lectures meeting international experts and guests.
“The world is seeking new minds in design, architecture, construction to address emerging challenges in our societies and cities”, said Aldo Sollazzo, director of the IAAC Global Summer School. “Programs such as the Global Summer School provides the budding minds of the architecture field with the tools they need to shape new solutions”.
The previous edition of GSS20 was a success, counting more than 100 international participants from all over the world joining together an explorative summer educational program. Students and professionals interested in participating need to submit an application here by 25th June, 2021.
