IAAC Global Summer School 2020

IAAC Global Summer School 2020

The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is pleased to inform you about the launch of Global Summer School 2020 (GSS20), the 13th edition of the international summer educational program focused on redesigning the future of our cities. The programme will take place online from IAAC Barcelona from June 29 through July 24.

This year the GSS20 is presenting a unique online experience interconnecting its extraordinary network of faculty, industry collaborators, nodes and laboratories in the biggest online educational summer course ever done before.  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 present a novel, flexible model, enriching our digital routes within a new format. The GSS will offer 4 online courses exploring at different scales the impact of novel tools in the definition of a new Advanced Architecture. The programme is an opportunity for architecture, design, arts students and professionals alike to conduct multi-level investigation on Computational Design, Ai Urbanism & Machine Learning, Building Information Modelling and Design for Robotics - controlling IAAC robots from their home.

This new program will be a celebration of alternative models and future education dealing with the challenges of the new world transforming our cities, architecture and technology. Each participant can now trace a personal path in this dynamic format, picking a single GSS course or enrolling for the entire program. Every module will be run by IAAC faculties, allowing students to interact, work together, develop projects and participate in Global Lectures meeting IAAC international experts and guests.  

“Programs such as IAAC’s Global Summer School have never been more important than they are now,” said Aldo Sollazzo, director of the Global Summer School at IAAC. “The world is in severe need of new minds in architecture to solve the humanitarian problems that threaten us. We at IAAC created the Global Summer School in order to provide the budding minds of the architecture field with the tools they need to address these problems.”

The previous edition of Global Summer School 2019, “Becoming” brought together more than 160 international participants, and was a great success as an explorative summer educational program. Students interested in participating need to submit an application here by 25th June, 2020.

Join the biggest educational summer program ever done before!
