The ESARQ-School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona was founded in 1997, and its DNA, identity and distinctive model have been evolving from that moment onwards. By DNA, we refer to subjects that belong to the School’s own specific model, subjects that define and reaffirm its spirit and philosophy, based on three cornerstones: individual attention, innovation and contact with the industry, and also commitment. In other words, innovation at the service of the people.
Amongst these subjects, workshops and courses we highlight the compulsory subjects of Cooperation, Accessibility and Sustainability, this last subject instigated by the CEIM Chair; the Vertical Workshop, which consists of a week-long workshop at the beginning of the course where all the students work together on a project intended to benefit the community; and lastly, the Foros cycle, a series of conferences that offer students the chance to gain first-hand knowledge of the different methods and philosophies in every facet of the field of architecture.
