COMPOSTELA INTERDISCPLINARY DESIGN 

XSA-107  

THREE-WEEK INTENSIVE 

Appropriate for architects and recent graduates from wide range of design fields including, urban design, interior design, and construction management. 

An intensive three-week course, Compostela Interdisciplinary Design, takes the northwest region of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) as its site, inviting students to use digital and remote platforms to study the relationship between design and its social, cultural, and political context,  to learn about local construction and production practices, and to test various tools and methodologies for conducting site analyses. Working collaboratively across a range of contexts, students study historical, vernacular, and modern design at multiple scales (urban planning and landscape architecture; architecture and construction; interior, industrial, and communications design, etc.), and will have unique access to a number of interdisciplinary projects by accomplished designers including Abalo, Acebo, Amado, Ansede, Carrasco, Eisenman, Gallego, Grimshaw, Hejduk, Isozaki, Koolhaas, Marques da Silva, Piñera, Rosa, Rossi, Siza, and Urqiola.

Prerequisite knowledge: Degree in design OR at least one year studio design experience and must submit a design portfolio (PDF file as an email attachment, no larger than 5MB) to Professor Maria Sieira at msieira@pratt.edu. Please include in the email subject line “Compostela Portfolio," followed by your name.
