Description

Is any space educational? Only elitist schools should have exclusive educational spaces? Are these environments facilitators of the teaching-learning processes? And if all of the above is true, shouldn’t all schoolchildren enjoy these spaces? Shouldn’t the architectural projects start from the proposals emanating from the various educational communities? What is being done in other countries in relation to this issue? What practical session (workshop) is it possible to organize in the current classrooms? How does education in architecture and urbanism contribute to the formation of citizenship of the future? The reflection on these related pedagogical questions has so far been little analyzed.

The social projection of this educational debate and the commitment to pay particular attention to practical applications are the foundations on which this IUCE summer course proposal is based. At the gates of the celebration of the fifty years of the UAM, this reflection becomes particularly necessary to meet the necessary reforms of its spaces with the scarce resources we have.
