Good design is more than ever a key social and cultural asset. In order to provide students and practitioners with the tools needed to direct activity in the challenging context of the current professional climate, a new center for research, practice, and dissemination of contemporary architecture has recently opened in the city of Barcelona. The Barcelona Institute of Architecture (BIArch) is positioned to become an international referent for architecture, particularly with the launch of its post-professional Master’s degree program, the MBIArch, directed at architects that want to develop higher levels of conceptual, design and practical skills.
