ABOUT

Following the successful experience of the Summer School in Porto and the Visiting programs in Mexico, France, Sweden and Switzerland, Porto Academy aims now to a new Visiting School entitled Visiting Barcelona that will take place from 15th to the 22nd July 2024 .
Barcelona is definitely an important architecture destination. Its historical legacy on the architecture scene is highly relevant due to the presence of iconic buildings and authors in the city.
The Architecture School La Salle and Porto Academy share the common ground of interest and passion for the discipline of architecture. This is reflected by the quality of the different guest tutors who are recognized by their work in the field of education and practice. But also for the students or practitioners who are also coming from a wide range of origins turning this into an international and multicultural experience of learning.

WHERE
The Visiting School program will take place in the prestigious Architecture School La Salle, Barcelona, Spain

WHEN
From the 15th to the 22nd July 2024

WHO CAN TAKE PART
The Visiting School is open to students, graduates in architecture and related disciplines and to people with an appropriate background and professional experience in the architectural field.

PANORAMAH!

With surfaces above 98% structural glass, minimalist windows are all about glazing. From an industrial point of view, more significant glass dimensions require larger tempering furnaces, smooth operability and technical performances impose precision and higher quality standards, often more demanding than defined by international glass processing norms. To keep up with new challenges, panoramah! verticalized its industrial activity and integrated glass transformation in 2011. Continuously investing in its transformation capacity ever since, it became one of the largest glass transformers in Europe with a 9-metre furnace and the ability to process double- and triple-glazed units up to 29 sqm. This capacity has proved critical in different processes, mainly as glass progressively absorbs new functions, admits irregular and curved shapes or assumes various aesthetic requirements. panoramah! is currently the only manufacturer of minimalist windows in the world that processes and manufactures the main components of its systems, having full control and accountability over the entire process. From design to manufacture and installation, we answer for the complete system, both glass and aluminium. We streamlined glass transformation, adaptation to the system and transportation to the job site, rendering an apparently risky and complex procedure into an everyday job. Furthermore, with built experience in over 60 different countries and a strong network of more than 50 certified specialized partners, panoramah! is effectively present throughout the globe. Supported by our team, this network is composed by fully experienced technicians that ensure a constant presence at all stages, from glazing consulting to installation and long-term maintenance.
