Architecture students from Valencia (Politechnic University of Valencia) and London (Saint Martins University of the Arts London) are working on suggestions how to connect the Avenida del Mediterráneo with the historic center and the beautiful landscape Teulada-Moraira offers.
Between March 29 and March 31, 2017 a total of 35 students, divided in seven groups are taking part in a workshop in the Auditorio. Each group deals with a different subject and is preparing urban and rural suggestions for Teulada-Moraira. The management of the Auditorio and the professors of both universities explain that the project is a very enriching and positive experience for everybody. The students are very motivated as they get the chance to work in situ on a real project, offering different solutions to the society. As the students come from several countries they have a different point of view and the vision of the project becomes broader. Besides students from Valencia the Auditorio also welcomes students from the Balearic Islands, Barcelona, Italy, Switzerland, France, Brazil, Lithuania and China. They are between 20 and 25 years old and all are overwhelmed and admire the Teulada-Moraira countryside. All of them agree that the most surprising thing is their work place, the Auditorio, the creation of the famous architect Francisco Mangado. It is a great example of the quality of Spanish architecture.
The suggestions will be presented tomorrow at 5pm in the Auditorio Teulada-Moraira and everybody is welcome to assist.
Carlos Linares, mayor and president of the Foundation CV Auditori Teulada Moraira, mentioned how important the value of the countryside during such an encounter is. The dialogue between countryside and architecture unifies in a special way and covers the necessities of citizens and tourists. The outcome of the workshop will certainly have some influence on the municipality.
This International workshop is part of a trilogy which started in 2014 and back then the protagonists were the wine and the sea. This time it is all about the urban spaces and the countryside, working with the limits of the local territory. We are all looking forward to the third encounter.
