ELISAVA offers students from any university in the world the opportunity to supplement their education with a course tailored to their curriculum and academic requirements.
The content and duration of the programme can be chosen and adapted to the educational requirements of degree or post-graduate courses so that they can be recognised and officially approved at each student's educational institution of origin.
In addition, these programmes enable interaction between the teachers from each school, strengthening bilateral exchanges and research programmes. Thanks to the diversity and specialisation provided by the more than 700 teachers working at ELISAVA, courses can be taught in any language and can cover any area in the disciplines of design, engineering, and architecture.

This module aims to introduce basic principles and design methodologies on landscape appreciation, through discussions on world-wide famous landscape sites and projects.
The students of the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) will do this course directed by Martí Franch, Víctor Tenez Ybern, Albert Cardellà and Miriam García during June-July 2015.
This module aims to introduce basic principles and design methodologies on landscape appreciation, through discussions on world-wide famous landscape sites and projects. It will provide students with the basic skills for graphical representation of the landscape, including the development of site plan, section, elevation, and perspective views through creativity tools. The course will encourage the exploration of sustainable landscape solutions at the site scale based on a landscape designed for multiple functions (ecological, economic, and social).
MODULE LEARNING OUTCOMES
On completion of this module, students are expected to be able to:
1. Critique landscape design or sites based on comprehensive awareness on aesthetic, functional, cultural, or ecological issues.2. Identify environmental and social contributions of landscapes.3. Demonstrate awareness of social and cultural sustainability when discussing landscapes.
In this workshop we’ll be exploring the basics of landscape design discipline, its basic tools and principal themes of discussion, through master classes and oriented lectures. We’ll be working together on exercises that will introduce you to basic theoretical themes and on practical exercises on-site in Barcelona city centre.
Each lecture will introduce a theoretical theme of discussion, related to keywords like:
The students will engage design methodologies on landscape appreciation through the process of the design of a public space in the center of the city by a set of quick exercises. It will be done by each student along the whole duration of the workshop.
The intention is to give a solid materials knowledge with a focus on both conventional materials and sustainable & multi-purpose materials, and to broaden the knowledge of sustainability concepts from a socio-cultural perspective.
The students of the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) will do this course, directed by Laura Clèries and Robert Thompson, during June-July 2015.
Sustainable materials is intended to further in the environmental aspects involved in selecting materials and which have a direct influence on the product design and development process. The intention is to give a solid materials knowledge with a focus on both conventional materials and sustainable & multi-purpose materials, and to broaden the knowledge of sustainability concepts from a socio-cultural perspective. The purpose is to deepen in materials and related products that allow for more ecological futures and to address our responsibility as designers.
On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
1. Devise solutions to address environmental issues in our daily lives in relation to material design in different social and cultural contexts;2. Create functional and valuable designs with aesthetic and sustainability concerns; and3. Critique the selection and creation of materials for end use.
After initial lecture sessions, we will develop a project, from concept to mock-up, where we have to ideate a product from a sustainable solution perspective. Initial research, to be recorded on a sketchbook, will be followed by a moodboard, which will define our project concept, use/users, materials and aesthetics.Ideation and product sketches will be materialized through a mock-up. A final presentation of the projects will be required.
The workshop aims to develop real projects in architecture and interior design located in Barcelona. The workshop is accompanied by interesting visits to works and architecture studies in Barcelona with special recognition and interest.
PresentationThe purpose of the workshop A CONTRALUZ_2 is to offer the Architecture and the Interior Architecture students the opportunity to complete their studies and training in an architecture workshop assisted by specialized teachers of the ELISAVA Barcelona School. This annual workshop works in cooperation with the Monterrey-México design school CEDIM, under the guidance of Lola Domènech, architect and ELISAVA teacher (Master’s Degree in Interior Design).
ProgrammeThe workshop aims to develop real projects in architecture and interior design located in Barcelona. The workshop is accompanied by interesting visits to works and architecture studies in Barcelona with special recognition and interest.
MethodologyThe workshop will consist of:
GoalsThe course aim is to define a project that strengthens the creative value, considering the actual context and incorporating aspects and present technical solutions. The experimentation is present throughout the development of the project, with the ultimate goal of promoting consistency and suggestion for obtaining an innovative projected result.
