The purpose of the workshop A CONTRALUZ_2 is to offer the Architecture and the Interior Architecture students the opportunity to complete their studies and training in an architecture workshop assisted by specialized teachers of the ELISAVA Barcelona School. This annual workshop works in cooperation with the Monterrey-México design school CEDIM, under the guidance of Lola Domènech, architect and ELISAVA teacher (Master’s Degree in Interior Design).



The workshop aims to develop real projects in architecture and interior design located in Barcelona. The workshop is accompanied by interesting visits to works and architecture studies in Barcelona with special recognition and interest.



The workshop will consist of:

A workshop of architecture and interior architecture projects that has a current location in Barcelona

Architectural tours of projects and relevant architecture and interior architecture studies

Lectures of architects and interior designers who have prestige

In this year’s edition, architecture students were challenged to redesign a Bar-Kiosk from Parc de la Ciutadella, and interior design students were in charge of 080 Barcelona Fashion’s catwalk at Comillas hall in Drassanes (Barcelona Maritime Museum). The aim of this project was to answer to real needs by suggesting coherent solutions to break new ground in investigation and exploring new internal distribution models.

During this month, students also carried out many visits to buildings and architecture studies in the city. Moreover, they attended lectures offered by architects and interior designers of recognized standing.


These lectures and visits have been carried out by renowned architects and interior designers, such as: Carme Pinós, architect (inaugural conference); Jordi Garcés, architect (closing visit); Mercè Berenguer, architect; Marcos Catalan, interior designer; Eugeni Bach, architect; and Jordi Badia, architect.
