Clemson at the Barcelona Architecture Center

Among European cities, Barcelona is known for its unique city plan, wonderful urban spaces, and rich architectural tradition. The city is a living urban and architectural laboratory. Historic landmark buildings by Gaudî punctuate the 19th century city fabric, while a wealth of buildings from the Modernist period and acclaimed contemporary work make the city a design capital of the world.

Students take study tours to other cities in Spain as part of the curriculum and have an opportunity for independent travel throughout Europe. Degree-seeking graduate and undergraduate students may apply for grants to help with the cost of the semester in Europe.

Architecture students work at the Barcelona Architecture Centerdirected by Miguel Roldán, located at Ptge de la Pau, 10, in the Gothic Quarter, a few blocks from the harbor and the Mediterranean Sea. The facility accommodates up to 18 students, who are taught in English by Spanish faculty and a Clemson program professor and director. Students live in an independently owned (SIRESA SI), dormitory-style student housing complex near the BAC studio space.
