Summer School: Campus Ultzama
Student applications until 8 June! Campus: 2nd-12nd July 2018, Ultzama, Spain
DATE: 2/7/2018
"The Fundación Arquitectura y Sociedad is a non-profit, private cultural entity with a national and international reach. Based in Madrid and Pamplona, it was set up in 2008 with the aim of promoting architecture as a field inextricably bound to life in society at large. An annual activity of the organization is Campus Ultzama, held in the Navarrese municipality of Ultzama. 

Directors: Carlos Pereda, Ignacio Olite
The Summer School consists of two Workshops to be held simultaneously, side by side, immediately after the Encounters. Students will work with three professors in developing a single project based on the program set. The idea is to give the students the opportunity to work in a set-up resembling that of a real-life practice tasked with a commission, under the supervision of the professors. Emphasis will be on “with,” rather than on “for,” simulating the intensity and efficiency of team work in an architectural office as well as the journey through the various phases of a project, from design to execution.

Workshop 1 02.07—12.07.2018
Professors: Francisco Mangado, Carlos Pereda, Ignacio Olite
Workshop 2 02.07—12.07.2018
