Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura del Vallès
. dissensus tries to explore the contemporary condition and spatial reality
on which architects operate broadening the view and fostering critical
reflection about aspects of society that are paramount but nonetheless
too often taken for granted… sociologists, anthropologists, philosophers,
artists, film-makers, thinkers… have understood many of these crucial
aspects of our cities and our lifes in a way that seems at least interesting
to analyze if not absolutely essential for an architect.
The verification of a great loss of social, critical, political and even utopian
impetus in the contemporary debate and production of architecture is
the underlying and motivating concern of the course. Upon generalized,
common acceptance of action and production mechanisms that follow
those of capitalism and the market, one must search for alternative ways
to advance towards a political dimension of architecture.
On the basis of already successful explorations of such alternative ways,
conducted in the fields of visual arts and cinema, the course tries to offer
a double insight and includes a series of film projections as an alternative
look at the city and at the issues, theories and reflections explored in the
classes. The aim is to foster debate and reflection, opening windows to
the appropriation of subversive mechanisms that may be applicable in a
trans-disciplinary way.
From such a reflective, somehow uncomfortable position, students should
“react”, formulating their own assignments (exercises) in the form of a
critical analysis, comparing, deepening, relating or de-constructing one
or more of the themes explored in the course.

Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura del Vallès
After such a theoretical excursion, a number of films
will be screened in the afternoon session. The films
will be related to some of the issues addressed during
the first part of the day. The selected works are either
dealing with really interesting themes or doing it
through equally interesting mechanisms (expressive or
narrative machines).
The day can then finish with a debate/conversation that
works as a platform to connect themes, reflections,
contradictions, oppositions, gazes and sensibilities
explored during the class or extracted from the previous
classes/films. In order to achieve such a debate, daily
comments after the class and film will be required for
each participant, so that the comments can be used to
foster debate the following day/session.

The course is structured on the basis of a series of
lectures that try to explore the list of themes proposed.
Each of these lectures offers a first aproach/insight of
one of the themes, which is generally followed, after a
break, by a second, shorter and more specific lecture,
that offers a sort of counterpoint, in order to complement,
redefine or even question the initial aproach/view.
Throughout the course, several guests will offer some
of these counterpoints by means of their own research,
experience and work.

REQUIRED PROCEDURES, ASSIGNMENTS AND DUE WORK
1. REGISTER IN THE COURSE BLOG
Each student must connect to www.etsav.upc.edu/assignatures/dissensus and register by clicking ‘log
in’ then ‘register’, and using “name.surname” as username plus providing a valid email address to
which the password will be sent. (Be sure to do this properly since your username will be the only way to
identify your required comments). You can use this address to access directly to the registration process:
http://www.opa-a2a.org/dissensus/wp-login.php?action=register
3. 300-WORD ABSTRACT
Each student must produce a short (maximum 300 words) text that presents the idea for a longer essay/
paper that will have to reflect on the interplays of the notions of “the other/coexistence” to rethink the
role of architecture in the production of spaces for being and for living together, and in relationship to
some of the issues addressed in the course. This abstract must be sent via email to [email protected]
edu before Saturday 16th of June 2012 at 20:00h.
4. GROUPS
The participants will be then organized in 6 groups based on the content of the abstracts and every one
in each group will be given tasks related to developing their own texts or preparing short presentations
of the readings we will share.
5. INDIVIDUAL PAPERS
A number of you will be asked to produce a serious critical reflection in the form of a short paper (30004000 words) that will develop the issues outlined in the abstract. Finished papers must be sent via email
to [email protected] before midnight on Thursday 21st of June 2012.
6 . GROUP RESEARCH-THROUGH-READING
Some of you will continue to work in group to explore the relationships of the readings with the overall
theme of the course (the other/coexistence) in ways different than a written text.
5. FINAL PRESENTATION
Each student writing an individual paper and each group working on collective research will prepare a
very short, intense and critical presentation/synthesis of the paper/research performed, in the form of
a PECHA_KUCHA (X)x(Y)=360sec*. Presentations must be 360 seconds long maximum and consist of a
file that can be played full-screen. This presentations should be brought to the class in a USB drive. All
presentations will take place the last day of the course on the 22nd of June 2012.

“At bottom, the intellectual, in my
sense of the word, is neither a
pacifier nor a consensus-builder,
but someone whose whole being
is staged on a critical sense, a
sense of being unwilling to accept
easy formulas, or ready-made
clichés, or the smooth, ever-soaccommodating confirmations of
what the powerful or conventional
have to say, and what they do. ”
Edward Said, Representations of the Intellectual, page 23
