Compostela Architecture Summer Program 2011

Compostela Architecture Summer Program 2011

The Compostela Architecture Summer Program 2011 will integrate students in the historical context of the city of Santiago de Compostela, to experience walking, travelling, and living among architectural masterpieces.

The students in this program will participate in a sort of “architectural pilgrimage” to buildings by Alvaro Siza, David Chipperfield, and others. Students will also have the unique opportunity to visit the construction site of Peter Eisenman’s largest project to date, the Cidade da Cultura, which embodies some of the most intriguing ideas the architect has been developing for decades.

In addition, this program will focus on issues of sustainability in contemporary architecture. Lectures and seminars will discuss new technologies and new approaches to create more sustainable buildings within a new context.

These different dimensions of learning will be smoothly integrated into a single coherent educational program, complemented by the spiritual experience of own architectural pilgrimage.

The Compostela Architecture Summer Program will run from July 18th to August 6th and they are currently accepting applications until April 29th. Further details can be found here.
