General description In the subject of Architectural Design 2 we select a geographical area of Galicia for the placement and development of the exercises. This selection is based on the interest of the place in terms of landscape, culture and patrimony and also in terms of its appropriateness and adequacy regarding the learning objectives. Two exercises are proposed for the fourth-month period, and they are placed in the same geographical area. They are undertaken in sequential phases and both are related between them. One of the basic objectives is teaching the students how to undertake the design process taking into account the place where they are set, reading the natural/rural physical environment. They must develop specific abilities and strategies for that. Teaching methods are based on “learning by doing”, confronting the students with specific commitments in particular placements. The difficulty of the two exercises proposed during the fourth-month period increases gradually. The aim of that is favouring a progression in their learning capabilities, boosting the students’ confidence and stimulation. Generating architectural ideas, formalising them and paying attention to their relationship with the physical environment should make up an essential part of the acquired knowledge.
