Academic solutions for cities development
The CT Labs have the goal to share academic solutions with the society to face, together with the City Councils, the challenges of the growth of cities and the contemporary human habitat. Therefore, the cities become a laboratory where students work and develop their proposals. These works are then exhibited publicly.
Are you a City Council and would like our students to present solutions for your city? Write an e-mail to email@example.com.
The City Council of El Paso and the School of Architecture signed an agreement partnership agreement for 5th year students and professors of the Degree in programs of study of Architecture to work on projects to design a National Volcanological Center (CVN) -the City Council has applied as a municipality to host it- in the Cumbre Vieja area, where the Tajogaite volcano is located.

The nearby and historic city of Logroño has been laboratory of original ideas and proposals at different scales and fields.

Bilbao CT Lab was born as an initiative of the School interested in Bilbao and its area of influence as an area of work for the practical activities that take place throughout the programs of study of Architecture. The uniqueness and complexity of the Biscayan capital and its region allow us to consider this conurbation as laboratory and case study at different scales and from different subjects (urban planning, architecture, landscape, design or history).
Consequently, an agreement has been reached with the Bilbao City Council to organize projects of mutual interest, with the aim of providing each course with real places and programs with which to develop proposals of interest to citizens.
