Summer Abroad Spain, "Housing and Urbanism in Barcelona"
Barcelona, celebrated as a model for contemporary urbanism, architecture, and landscape, is also a city with innovative housing, strong community identities and a long history of activism. For four weeks we will explore the relationship between city planning, communities, and housing—examining Barcelona’s urban history, housing policies, and grass-roots activism. With the city as our classroom, learning happens through daily field trips, guest lectures, design projects, and conversations at sidewalk cafes, where we will learn, synthesize, and apply knowledge to actual places in this Mediterranean city.
