This special issue of [En Blanco. Revista de Arquitectura] #31 invites papers that reflect on university architecture and urbanism, and examine the diversity of this subject from current, retrospective or comparative perspectives. In particular, unpublished contributions are invited which are the result of research work and which, by focusing on spatial design, bring innovation to the following questions:
• University architecture and its design processes: the specific design of university buildings and campuses (present and past) and their spatial response to programmatic needs, from planning through to their completion; the processes of architectural and urban design specific to this topic, and the graphic approaches resulting from the conception of hybrid programmes of building and urban scale.
• The relationship between architecture and urban planning, and forms of knowledge transmission: formal and informal spaces for learning in higher education; the adaptation of physical space and learning methodologies in universities in the era of digital transformation (emergence of the digital classroom); the particular case of buildings intended for teaching in architecture and their connection with the specific educational features of the discipline.
• The prospects for the evolution of university architecture and urban planning: the updating of campuses and infrastructures and their spatial and technical adaptation to new needs; the current challenges facing university campuses (sustainability, energy efficiency, and digital transformation); the image and the embodiment of the new definition of the university in terms of its market rules as an institution, its management and its corporatisation.
