Summer Study Abroad

CESUGAASD + WW

May 9 – Arrival in A Coruña / Jul 3 – Programme ends.

  • WW: Woodworking Workshop: 3 US CREDITS (45H)
  • ASD. Architectural Studio Design “Crossroads”

“The tomb of St. James the Greater was discovered around the year 820. This event was immediately followed by the creation of the sacred place to venerate his remains. Today, twelve centuries later, pilgrimage represents a unique experience in our globalized world. The pilgrimage phenomenon soon became a significant spiritual and cultural focal point for Europe, turning Santiago into a major pilgrimage site, along with Rome and Jerusalem. The Way of St. James has acted as a true ‘pathway of knowledge’.” (https://www.caminodesantiago.gal/en/inicio)

The footprint of this pilgrimage traces a net over the land and even over the sea that have especial interest for those that trace, draw and design over this territory.

Architects are one of those that draw and design, that trace over this surface integrating a sense of space in a way of use, firmness and beauty.

Over 7 weeks we will have the commitment of designing an architectural space but essentially it will be an opportunity to experience a place. Architectural Design will be able to arise the extended history that underlies and project it towards a new time.

Historical city of Santiago de Compostela is the endpoint of many itineraries of Saint James Way arriving from France, Portugal, United Kingdom and the rest of Spain; Santiago is also the administrative capital of the region of Galicia. Along the contour line that limits the region, both by land and sea, we have selected points of entrance as strategic spots of a network that have the city of Santiago in its heart. All of these points have a special significance and there, we will experience megalithic spots, preroman settlements, roman monuments, city of XIX, … and finisterraes, …

In this territory constructed with addition of these historic layers, we will also appreciate this overlapped historical continuity until today visiting contemporary architecture and innovative design.

  • WW. Woodworking Wokshop.

Design and Woodworking Workshop. Ephemeral installation in dialogue with the landscape while establishing connections with possible needs of the site where it is located, contributing to its socioeconomic impulse to some extent.

Pedagogical aims: Experience and pedagogical tool that connects the student with materiality and its tectonic logic, in relation to a specific site, working from design scale to construction at 1:1 scale, facing the decision making with direct effects on reality. Provide the student with a method that would guide and frame their design process in strict relation with a given technique and material. Work in a collaborative design process with the objective of defining the location to install the structure, the architectural design strategy to be applied, and the development of all the technical details necessary for its final construction.

  • SDM: Surveying, drawing, making: 3 US CREDITS (80H)

“The tomb of St. James the Greater was discovered around the year 820. This event was immediately followed by the creation of the sacred place to venerate his remains. Today, twelve centuries later, pilgrimage represents a unique experience in our globalized world. The pilgrimage phenomenon soon became a significant spiritual and cultural focal point for Europe, turning Santiago into a major pilgrimage site, along with Rome and Jerusalem. The Way of St. James has acted as a true ‘pathway of knowledge’.” (https://www.caminodesantiago.gal/en/inicio)

Surveying, drawing, making is a sequence that we can connect with a 1D, 2D, 3D tour; even beginning with a 0D point.

We will begin with the intangible idea of Santiago in our mind, with a center, a 0D point; then we will travel the first path and we trace a 1D line, also we can identify aligned points along it; then we will travel the second, the third and the fourth path and with the first one we just can to planify a net of lines, a 2D Surface; at this moment we are just at the point to materialise, to make the last step, to construct a 3D artifact that engraved and footprinted the experience we have.

The goal of this course is to obtain knowledge about a historical and cultural site: the way of Saint James; also to develop and improve skills to master and internalise through critical thinking (ideas and concepts), analysis (parts), design (drawings) and construction (models). Moreover, an occasion to balance intangible questions with tangible facts, even those in the middle of both ones.
