Professors Pablo De Souza and Argeo Semán took part in the Culture & Urban

The Universidad Europea de Canarias stand was visited by the president of the Tenerife Island Council, Carlos Alonso, during the largest innovation forum in the Canary Islands, Fi2. The event took place on October 27 and 28 at the Tenerife Art Space (TEA), with various recreational and educational activities. During the event, university Communication and Architecture professors and students took part in various activities such as lectures, workshops and demonstrations, which were enjoyed by guests and authorities from the Island Council, Tenerife City Council and other institutions. While visiting the university’s stand, the authorities had the chance to see different projects students from the institution have been working on, how 3D printers are used to construct the base pieces of a building, or the real-size reproduction of the floor plan of a home in the apartment tower 404 One Park Drive.

The Universidad Europea de Canarias was invited by Los Realejos Council, to take part in the Culture & Urban Planning for people seminars held from November 2-7 in the town of Los Realejos (Tenerife), to present the refurbishment plan for the Hacienda La Gorvorana, developed by our students.

During the seminars, our School of Architecture professor, Pablo De Souza, and his fellow professor from the same course and president of the Tenerife branch of the Island Professional Association of Architects of the Canary Islands (COIAC), Argeo Semán, presented the specific case study of the Project Based Learning (PBL) initiative for the Hacienda de La Gorvorana.

This intervention plan is a collection of restoration and refurbishment ideas and proposals for this property and its surrounding area commissioned by the authorities of Los Realejos to our students, and presented during these architecture seminars.

Professor Argeo Semán also gave a lecture entitled Urban planning and coexistence.
