IAAC Global Summer School 2018

The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is pleased to inform you about the Global Summer School 2018, 11th edition of the international summer educational program about the future of our cities, that will take place in Barcelona and in other nodes worldwide simultaneously from the 2nd to the 14th of July 2018.

This two-weeks intense program brings together experts from around the world to discuss the future of urbanism and the impact of technology on spaces exploration through a series of workshops, global lectures, presentations and a final ceremony.

The Global Summer School (GSS) is a platform defined by ambitious, multi-scalar investigation on the implications of emergent techniques in our planned environments. Each year, international teams located in key cities around the globe explore a common agenda with projects that are deeply embedded in diverse local conditions. Because of this, participants have an international laboratory to test their design hypothesis, understanding how design conclusions derived locally can be tested and evolved globally in different cities where other teams reside.

This intensive course connects each participant to ongoing research agendas in robotics, simulation, physical computing, parametric design, digital fabrication, and other relevant emerging design methodologies. Specific emphasis is placed on understanding the multi-scalar implications of design conclusions, thus creating critical research advanced on the application of new technologies in design.

Nodes for Global Summer School 2018 editions are: Barcelona, Paris, Quito, Muscat, New York, Querétaro, Shanghai, Budapest, Tehran, Chandigarh, Istanbul, Manila, Moscow, Melbourne and Beirut.

The previous edition of Global Summer School 2017 - Space Dynamics - brought together more than 150 international participants, becoming a great success as a reference summer educational program for Barcelona in the field of cities.
