Spring Biodigital Seminar

In January the 2016 edition of the University Master’s Degree in Biodigital Architecture 2016 was launched. The course Director is Professor and Architect Dr Alberto T. Estévez.

This pioneering postgraduate programme combines architecture and design, biology and new digital technologies, and has a unique perspective of architecture from both a biological and a digital point of view. As part of the Master’s degree programme, and entitled “Spring Biodigital Seminar”, conferences will be given by renowned architects and researchers, both national and international.

We invite you to join us at the following open lectures:

He founded also two research lines with two masters’ degrees and Ph.D. programmes: “Genetic Architectures / Biodigital Architecture” (UIC Barcelona, 2000-today) and “History, Architecture and Design” (UIC Barcelona, 1998-today). He has written more than one hundred publications and has participated in a large number of exhibitioins, congresses and conferences around Europe, America and Asia.
