This video shows a typical day early on in the first studio [ArboReal House] of the 2009-2010 IaaC Masters of Advanced Architecture. The studio is divided into two phases. The first phases consists of student teams adopting a tree species in Barcelona and studying a specimen of that species to understand its reactions to environmental stresses as well as its genetic expression. In the second phase, students develop the logic observed in the tree as spatial proposals distributed throughout Barcelona.

The studio is directed by Areti Markopoulou and Luis Fraguada with support from Gerard Passola and Michele Rojkind.
