In its second round the AA /IE Madrid Summer School will explore the relation between architecture and energy use in the near future. Having Madrid as research ground, case study and headquarters, students will investigate specific urban sustainable challenges. Moving away from greener clichés the Bleaching Green workshop will venture into uncharted territories blending design intuition and technological invention. By casting a critical eye on current sustainability and environmental strategies, the course objective is to investigate architecture as a blend of artificial and natural systems.

Based on the success of the first AA /IE Madrid Summer School, Bleaching Green will invite various speakers and contributors such as artists, scientists, innovators and agent provocateurs from different backgrounds in order to create a rich and interdisciplinary creative atmosphere. New materials, creative partnerships and prototype pieces will be part of this architectural design research-led workshop. The output will be in the form of animations, kinetic components, built prototypes and elegant drawings, models and renderings. Evening lectures, site visits and architectural tours will give an insight into the subject and the city itself. The course aims to target enthusiastic architectural students at any point of their studies and recent graduates. It will provide a stage for debating contemporary architectural ideas, digital and analogue techniques, with an emphasis on inventive design and experimental manufacturing processes.
