In the spring of 2002, there were three workshops set up to demonstrate Tapial architecture – which is the earth architecture of Girona.

These workshops were organized together with local architectsOriol Rosselló and Lluís Auquer, and aimed to put into practice the traditional earth building techniques. The goal was to apply this construction style in real situations.
