Waterworks is a two-week, experimental architecture course organised as a part of the Visiting School programme at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London. The programme transports architectural design back to its origins, by tackling social-agricultural realities.
Students will design water catchment and management solutions for the local inhabitants of the Alpujarras. We will Work, Live, Swim, Drink, Question, Explore and Interact with this transparent fluid, vital to all forms of life, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Unesco Biosphere Reserve, in the Alpujarras Granada, Spain.
The Granada Visiting School opens a platform for both local and international students to explore and interact with water management and innovative design solutions for the local inhabitants of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The course is open to varying fields and occupations; we accept students from varying backgrounds such as; engineering, graphic – artistic design, architecture, scientists, horticulturalists. Collaboration is key and the course seeks to involve a dynamic array of fields at varying levels of professional development.
