Our annual TransfoResidencies program promotes, on the one hand, research in the field of architecture and design through waste management, recycling, circular economy and creative reuse; and on the other, it promotes new models of production and self-employment in order to reinforce the social and solidarity economy of our context. To date, TransfoLAB BCN has received residents from the UPC Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, IED (European Institute of Design) Barcelona, Kingston University London and the University of Bristol, among others.
