Academic solutions for cities development

Aplicaciones anidadas


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.

Aplicaciones anidadas




Between January and April 2024, at framework of the CT Lab, the students and professors of Oriented Design Studio II (Project Workshop II) of the fifth year of Degree in Architecture of the School of the University of Navarra, will work in the municipality of El Paso (island of La Palma), based on the partnership agreement signed by the School of Architecture and the City Council of the island.

The topic to be developed will focus on the elderly, given the immediate challenges it poses for architecture. Thus, students will explore and develop new typologies that accommodate hybrid programs, architectural complexes that mix care or therapeutic spaces with tourist and residential spaces, short, average and long stay. As a result, they will be able to work not only in the field of geriatrics, but also in tourism and accommodation, two topics of special importance for La Palma and El Paso.

Finally, the design of industrialized, prefabricated and modularized solutions will be encouraged in the definition of each project, with the intention of definitively incorporating the imminent change in the ways of building into the professional internship .

CT Lab Bilbao


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.
