Learning architecture: Catalan schools debate – Architecture Week 2018

Within the framework of the Architecture Week, a conversation will take place between representatives of Catalan architecture schools participating at the YTAA 2018 around architecture teaching and the final project as an exercise in synthesis and demonstration of everything learned.

The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) was born in 2016 within the framework of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award (EUMiesAward) with the aim of supporting the first steps in the profession to the newly licensed architects. In this way, the YTAA does not only recognise the best final projects in  Europe, but it also becomes an observatory and an open debate platform of what happens in architecture schools.

We can hear the voices of the schools that have participated in the latest edition of the YTAA and know about these 18 projects of which they are authors:
Joan Martí, Ariadna Gutiérrez, Guillem Pascual, Ander Ushijima, Manuel Milla, Enrique Juan, Adriana García, David Mesa, Marta Delgado, Marta Esqueu, Albert Chavarria, Sergi Sauras, Marco Mosca, Anna Casadevall, Victor Barasoain, Manuel Prieto, Bernat Pedro, Iñigo Ocamica.
