The Global Summer School (GSS) is a platform defined by ambitious, multi-scalar investigation on the implications of emergent techniques in our planned environments. Each year, international teams located in key cities around the globe explore a common agenda with projects deeply embedded in diverse local conditions. Because of this, participants have an international laboratory to test their design hypothesis, understanding how design conclusions derived locally can be tested and evolved globally in different cities where other teams reside.
This intensive two week workshop connects each participant to ongoing research agendas in robotics, simulation, physical computing, parametric design, digital fabrication, and other relevant emerging design methodologies. Specific emphasis is placed on understanding and creating critical research advanced on the application of new technologies in design and architecture.
Nodes for Global Summer School 2019 - Becoming edition are: Barcelona, Quito, Pune, New York, Budapest, Monterrey, Shanghai, Melbourne, Tehran, Beirut, Manila, Istanbul, Hong Kong and Dubai.
The previous edition of Global Summer School 2018 - Digitize, brought together more than 160 international participants, becoming a great success as a reference summer educational program for Barcelona in the field of cities.

The Association of Naval Engineers of Ecuador (CINAVE) has organized an online course of 24 hours on modeling boat hulls. Dates are June 1,2,8,9,15,16,22 and 23. The course is divided into eight live classes, lasting three hours each, through the CINAVE platform. During the course, you will see how NURBS curves and surfaces work and a total of six different models of hulls from scratch and step by step. Language: Spanish
