IAAC - Institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia - Barcelona


Back to the list


MAEB offers 3 partial scholarships covering 50%, 30%, 20% for the tuition fee of the immersive Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings – Academic year 2018. Please read the competition outlines and terms & conditions below. The awards will be given to the top 3 contestants respectively. 


Society is facing unprecedented challenges. The increasing concern over whether we will be able to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement COP21 calls for a change in the way think, act and build.

We want you to do exactly that, think and build in a different way and share your idea of the house of the future with us. How is architecture going to help create a better future, a more sustainable and self-sufficient one? We don’t expect you to actually build something -just yet- but we do want to see the passion behind your ideas and plans, we want to see the way you draw and the added value you would bring to this master programme in Advanced Ecological Buildings.
