PERE RIERA : THINK WITH THE BODY

During the years between1978-1980, first year students of Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura del Vallès (ETSAV) moved into a hut-prototype overnight that they designed and built themselves.

In the adjacent forest of the university building, the students experienced a pioneering moment as part of their course. The possibility and advisability of a practical subject at the beginning of their career was unique. What began as a singular and special teaching experience eventually became a school party and a social event for the whole community in Sant Cugat. Other universities of architecture followed this example. The story and images of this project are the fundament for a new exhibition to be shown in eme3.
