The International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture, and Urbanism Iberia is hosting their annual summer school!

July 8th – 21st 2024  |  410€  |  Arcos de Valdevez, Portugal

This program will take place in the Municipality of Arcos de Valdevez, Portugal.

Local traditional urbanism, architecture, and building details will be studied to create a catalogue of preservation and new traditional building patterns for the area.

During the last days upgrade proposals for different public places of the town will be designed, using the work previously developed as a guideline for them.

Hand drawing and measuring buildings will be the main activity to be developed each day.

Experts in local vernacular architecture and building techniques will be lecturing on diverse related topics.

There will be trips around the area and some building sites will be visited too.

Skills: The language to be used during the activities will be mainly English, so at least basic skills using this language are recommended. Hand drawing and measuring buildings will be the main activity to be developed each day, so a good command of it is also recommended.

Places are limited to 28. We will be developing a selection process among all candidates. Several places will be reserved for the students of each participating university.  

Fee: The registration is 410€. This fee includes tuition, accommodation, meals and transportation during the two weeks of the Summer School. Once applicants are accepted, the payment procedure will be provided.

*the real cost per participant of this course is around 2500€, but, thanks to the support of Richard H. Driehaus, the Arcos de Valdevez Municipality and Kalam, the participation fee has been reduced to 410€.
