Headboard Architects is a methodology that was born as an academic project of ETSAB in 2013. It aims to bring the figure of the architect closer to the citizen and to show that we continue to be useful to society in the midst of economic and social crisis working from the collective housing in the existing city. AC was born as a demand from architecture students who put in crisis the university teaching model.

It aims to confront an academic lack, in which there is no contact with reality and its problems; a social lack, in a context of widespread housing emergency and a professional lack, at a time of deep crisis to go beyond architecture. This is why the aim is to empower students and take the existing city as a field of work.

An approach to collective housing is made, emphasizing the subject and not the object through the creation of transversal teams and direct collaboration with other entities of the neighborhood.

Acting on housing to transform the city from the inside out.
