Analyses and studies

ARAU publishes studies, analyses and press releases which help to demystify, from a critical viewpoint, urban-planning projects or proposals to change public spaces, buildings, public-transport infrastructure, etc. Some of these publications also focus on an in-depth analysis of basic environmental or governmental issues.

Seminars and workshops

For more 50 years, ARAU has organised an annual “Urban Planning School”, a series of seminars on a theme, that aims to lead participants to think about and do their own research on long-term action. ARAU also organises citizens’ workshops, made up of site visits followed by discussions, which, based on a concrete example, allow participants to diagnose an issue and to suggest ideas for improving the situation they have observed.
