The Campus is an encounter of student-architects—8 Spanish and 8 foreign—from different areas of knowledge and specialization. The 16 have to have earned their architectural degrees no earlier than the year 2000, and must be currently engaged in professional activities in simultaneity with further studies through graduate (master) or postgraduate (doctoral) programs.

Methodology: The event involves the “on campus” convivence of the 16 student-architects selected, by virtue of their academic credentials, to deliberate on ambitious themes (one per day) and reach conclusions. The dialogs will be moderated by trustees of the Fundación Arquitectura y Sociedad, representatives of the printed media, and an international expert team of educators and cultural curators.

Theme: The young and veteran participants will together tackle current issues in architecture and the practice of this cultural industry, from energy efficiency to formal rigor and its capacity to connect to other fields of knowledge, techniques, and cultural products, innovative and industrial. The idea is to bring together the voice of experience and the expectations of generations still in the process of finishing their studies or training with a view to beginning their careers.

Documentation: The dialogs and other proceedings of the encounter will be put together in a high-quality publication to be distributed in Spain in print form and through the web.
