The First Term Final Presentations for the Master in Advanced Architecture (MAA) will be taking place this week in IAAC.
Each Introductory Studio will present to a selected international jury on the following dates:

Introductory Studio_Machinic Protocols // Tutored by: Edouard Cabay; Computational Expert: Rodrigo Aguirre.
December 13th, 10.00 to 18.00
@Room 3.01

Machinic Protocols addresses the urban public space: a complex environment in which numerous dynamics converge and coexist. Methodologically, the studio relies on experimental drawing and performative physical modelling as means to explore notions of control and chance in space and time, targeting the most important modification to the Eixample’s regular gridded urban fabric in Barcelona: the suppression of cars within some of its neighbourhoods.

Introductory Studio_Social Energy // Tutored by: Javier Peña; Expert: Johnatan Minchin; Assistant: Oriol Carrasco.
December 14th, 11.00 to 18.00
@Room 3.01

The studio aims to explore the ambiguous links existing between energy and society. Each group of students is building a machine capable to manage sunlight while activating new social spaces, strategic engagements or community-making processes.

Introductory Studio_Anthropocene Landscapes // Tutored by: Claudia Pasquero, Carmelo Zappulla; Assistant: Maria Kuptsova.
December 15th, 11.00 to 18.00
@Room 3.01

The starting point of the course is to realize that in our contemporary global world it is impossible to trace a clear distinction between nature and artifice, between landscape and city and ultimately between the Biosphere and the Urbansphere.
Starting from the scientific acknowledgment of the Anthropocene, the studio liaise with multiple disciplines which vary from biotechnologies, to computation to craftsmanship which will enable the students to design future Anthropocene Landscapes.

IAAC Presentations are open to the public.
