The buildings and sites to be visited are an example of an efficient use of technology and energy saving. They are all part of the change in the architectural model that is contributing to improve the daily life of the citizens and the city services management. [+]

One course in two cities! The course examines the architecture and urbanism of two European cities (Barcelona and Almere) with a very different cultural and historical background. Barcelona was founded as a Roman city and has been growing through the ages; Almere is the youngest city in The Netherlands and has jumped straight into the future. But there is something they have in common: they both put innovation into perspective and have sustainability in the core business of their development. Dates and Schedule Week 1: from 06.07.2015 to 10.07.2015 Week 2: from 13.07.2015 to 17.07.2015 Course Level: Basic to Intermediate Credits: This course delivers 2.5 ECTS per stage + Certificate of Attendance The buildings and sites to be visited are an example of an efficient use of technology and energy saving. They are all part of the change in the architectural model that is contributing to improve the daily life of the citizens and the city services management. Barcelona has always been an important centre of business and culture and such traits can be traced in its urbanism and architecture: from the Roman colony, Barcino, and the still remaining walls to the middle age town with the revolutionary constructions in Catalan gothic style. From the expansion of the city in the XIX century with the Cerdà Plan, that was the framework in which Modernism was developed, to the end of the XX century, when the city reinvented itself again with the Olimpic vila and the 22@ neighbourhood. Almere has established an international reputation as a cradle of modern architecture. Some of the world’s most renowned architects have left their lasting marks on the city. Their ambitious and innovative creations have transformed the city into a showcase of the 21st century urban design, with relevant buildings and experimental housing projects. Experts Fedde Huistra and Bas Ten Brinke. Methodology The sessions on Urbanism and Architecture: Aspects of Sustainability will mostly be taught on site, with the support of some in-house lectures to provide the necessary background and overview. Students are encouraged to ask questions, actively participate in discussions, and comment on the reading materials assigned. Objectives Know first hand how new technologies are being applied in intelligent buildings and smart cities Experience what architects and town planners are doing to create a more sustainable environment Understand the benefits that the city can offer through the shift from a traditional to a sustainable and intelligent model Who should attend?
