The projects carried out by students of the School of Architecture of the University for the possible National Volcanological Center, for which the City Council of El Paso applied as a municipality in which to host it, are shown in a exhibition that is touring La Palma.

The sample was inaugurated in mid-October in the Casa de Cultura of El Paso Braulio Martín Hernández and can be visited in front of the town hall of El Paso. From November 15 to 18 it will travel to Santa Cruz de La Palma on the occasion of the meeting Nacional de la Agrupación Arquitectos Urbanistas. Afterwards, it will travel to Los Llanos and Tazacorte (dates to be determined).

Learning applied to reality

Last year, the City Council of El Paso and the School of Architecture signed an agreement partnership agreement so that 5th year students and professors of Degree in programs of study of Architecture could work on projects to design a National Volcanological Center (CVN) in the Cumbre Vieja area, where the Tajogaite volcano is located.

The School of Architecture organized in January a trip to La Palma with the students, who visited the area to work 'in situ' the knowledge of the site, engage in discussions with local experts and managers and analyze all the issues that were of interest to develop the project.

Then, in March, the 11 proposals were presented to the then mayor of El Paso and current president of the Cabildo Insular de La Palma, Sergio Rodríguez, who visited the School of Architecture in Pamplona. Now, these works are displayed on a exhibition on La Palma in front of the town hall of El Paso.
