The White Architecture Workshop taught at UPV is one of the Cathedra’s most succesfull clases due to its hands-on practical nature. The latest offering hosted 65 students, filling the class to capacity. For five years, the workshop has taught university students the properties and characteristics of white cement through practical classes that culminate with the creation of their scale model projects. The future architects learn to value white cement as a material that guarantees elegance and luminious, aesthetic beauty, without sacrificing functionality.
