10-Day International Workshop in Barcelona
Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
This ten day cinemetrics workshop will explore the potential of transport infrastructure to generate new public spaces. The aim is to challenge the perception of these infrastructures while introducing tools and strategies to further develop their urban qualities. The proposed explorations or localities cover different geographical and historical areas. The selection, which seeks to highlight the transitions and intermediate states, is based on four different temporal phases or situations: in progress, indeterminate, in operation and obsolete.
To explore the challenges that mobility poses to architects and planners.
To experiment with a real-time urbanism.
To learn from Barcelona, a singular and old city that stands out for its public spaces.
