During every summer since 2010, MEDS takes place in different countries of Europe. This year, the workshop will be held in Zaragoza (Spain). Not only known by its International Exhibition (EXPO) 'Water and sustainable development', which took place in 2008 and where important architects such as Zaha Hadid or Nieto Sobejano took part of it. But also, by its unique location in the Northeast of Spain at the river Ebro´s bank.

The themes will be focused on sustainability, local commerce support and the revival of several urban spaces among others. The main idea will be, to reexplore and update Las Fuentes, taking advantage of its historic context, helping the regeneration of the neighborhood through collaborative projects of architecture, art and design.
The wind, CIERZO, a special weather phenomenon from Zaragoza, will be carried out as an important point throughout the event. A strong wind which is formed by the difference of temperature between two local air masses - warm and cold.
The workshops will contain issues related with water and wind (CIERZO), mentioned above. These themes will be used as design concepts, which will be shown along the different projects, either as metaphors, through architectural movements, taking advantage of the energy that wind and water generate in a sustainable way, as sound strategies, or by introducing the air to enhance the proposals. Those proposals will create a pathway that conforms different points of interest.
Apply as a participant and become part of the experience!
