Giovanna explaining one of her students work to the jurors

Today I sat in on the midterm pin-up of a public spaces workshop by Professors, Carlos David Montoya, Giovanna Vittoria Spera and John Octavio Ortiz. Over the course of the week at UPB-Medellín it’s been interesting to see a group dynamic play out in all of the classes I’ve sat in on. It seems typical of the students to work in groups for their projects whether it be workshops (studio) or design classes. The quality of their work and their creativity rivals that of anything I’ve seen back in the states from a typical studio, the only difference is the wealth of information they’re able to bring to the table and the amount of exploration they can reach with their ideas; It goes without saying there’s strength in numbers, and it shows in their work.
