The  Special Registration period  for  BARCELONA SOCIAL HOUSING   architectural competition for students and young architects ends  Sunday ,  October 8th, 2017 . If your team has not registered yet remember that you will save 50% on the regular entry price!  We encourage you to participate in this new architectural challenge. You can be our next ARCHmedium winner!

There are large numbers of empty homes and the lack of rental housing makes the neighbors forced to move, a phenomenon known as gentrification. Currently Barcelona only has 1.5% of social rental housing, a figure far removed from the 50% in Vienna, or 30% in cities such as Berlin or Paris. Sensitive to this problem, ​​from ARCHmedium we invite students and

The workshop will focus on topics which are particular to the unique US culture such as language/pronunciation, cleanliness of the environment and homelessness, tipping culture, concept of personal space, and personal identity.
