INTRODUCTION

In the recent years, IAAC students have gathered in our premises, art galleries or Barcelona’s exhibition centres to present their original work at mid-term reviews or the final year’s exhibition. Projects have included material research, 3D printed structures, envisioning intelligent and future cities, urban technology developments or responsive bio-designs, to mention a few. Every summer, students participate in the final exhibition before the graduation ceremony. The atmosphere and success of the expo continue to bring students, alumni, faculty judges and curious people working in the field of architecture, design and urbanism back for more, year after year.
