Abstract

Since 2012 a Parallel Virtual Urban Workshop (PVW) has been developed at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (School of Architecture of Madrid, UPM). It was created by a group of professors in the framework of the Postgraduate Program. In 2014 this project became a consolidated Group of Educational Innovation called Urban Net-Working Workshop supported by the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UNWW-UPM). The initial targets of this workshop were: (i) improving international cooperation among academic institutions based on a virtual network, (ii) the implementation of a quasi-professional practice approach on urban regeneration projects and (iii) the development of a comprehensive methodology to manage complex urban issues in diverse urban contexts. Up until today, there have been five workshops: in 2012, a joint workshop between UPM (Madrid) and MIT (Boston); in 2013 and 2014, a collaborative workshop between UPM (Madrid) and UCL (London); in 2015, between UPM (Madrid) and KNG (London); currently, a parallel workshop is in progress between UPM (Madrid) and AF (Zagreb). Even though, every edition of the Urban Parallel Workshop has been rather unique, it can be asserted that initial targets have been overcome throughout successive workshops. ITCs and digitals tools have been gradually incorporated.
