The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia is pleased to announce a new edition of the distributed IAAC Global Summer School (GSS) workshops, presenting an online and presential experience connecting its amazing network of faculties, laboratories and renowned lecturers in the biggest online and presential educational summer course ever done before.  Since the first GSS edition, IAAC experts and students have been digitally connected, exchanging and sharing expertise in an extraordinary global learning environment of innovators and educators.

For the 2022 edition we are presenting a new and flexible workshops model, enriching our digital routes within an agile format. The GSS22 offers 3 online courses and 1 presential workshop at IAAC Barcelona exploring the impact of the latest digital tools in the definition of a new Advanced Architecture at different scales. This new GSS program will be a celebration of future education dealing with the challenges of the new world reshaping our cities, architecture and technology.

Each participant can now trace a personal path in this dynamic format, picking between single or more online modules and the presential workshop at IAAC. Every GSS course will be run by IAAC faculties and alumni, allowing students to interact, develop projects, fabricate together and participate in Global Lectures meeting international experts of the AEC industry.
