XII International Workshop of Architecture and Landscape

From July 15 to August 2, 2019

Directors: RCR Arquitectes – Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, Ramon Vilalta
Teaching Staff: Joan Puigcorbé, Mauro Turin, Alberto Collet, Arrate Abaigar, Jaime Ferrer and Narcís Font with Gonzalo Bardach, Rafael Martínez Sarrión and Marc Valero

Program

RCR Summer Workshop is born of a way of understanding Architecture and Landscape from a humanistic spirit. The coexistence in a space and time of different creative disciplines creates synergies for mutual enrichment between the parties.

The workshop is designed following four main ideas that articulate the program:

  • Competition Format: Closed exercises that condense a complex process within a specific time frame
  • Transversality: An integrative interdisciplinary approach
  • Sharing: Shared creativity fostering the capacity for dialogue
  • Experience: Understanding derived from observation, participation and experience

Creativity must be at the origin of the concept, present at the initial moment where we give answer to the question we are asked, and should be shared by all the participants, being the common thread of the process. Everything results from creativity.

The workshop focuses on the living of a direct experience of the participants, showing the territory where the work of RCR Arquitectes is rooted, with the aim of understanding their relationship with the site and the landscape, to share and pass on an attitude to life, architecture and creativity, putting into practice their working methods.

The Program consists in:

Creative Atelier. Three exercises are proposed for building capacity to excel conceptually and being resolutely communicative in a short term. The exercises are accompanied by a teaching team of four architects and assistants. The Creative Atelier includes intern lectures, weekly reviews by RCR Arquitectes, and the optional participation in a module of the Dance Program for exploring the relation between body and space.

Open Program. An exhibition, a cycle of conferences and parallel activities, open to the public.

Excursions. Visit to built works by RCR Arquitectes.
