Technological developments currently provide a potential that prioritizes their implementation rather than reflecting on the repercussions and consequences for the fields of knowledge involved. On the other hand, the current university studies take too long to receive the research results and remain in their disciplinary specificity. One of the tasks of the curricula is to be able to anticipate what does not yet exist to train their graduates with instruments and knowledge, as well as reflective capacity, for a world that changes more rapidly than the duration of university studies. As a form of approach, discussion, evaluation and transfer, this congress raises the old but not well-assumed relationship between biology and architecture. Experiments are being carried out all over the world, assembling laboratories, on biologically based materialities. To be in this process is to be in agreement with the sketches of what it will be to imagine the city of the future. However, these experimental processes require resources and technical resources that our university does not yet have. Our intention is to start the construction of a knowledge basin that is capable of evaluating while it is taking place, the socio-cultural implications, without leaving behind a specific technical training achievement. With these objectives, it would be to offer the results to the different university centres of the University of Seville so that they establish synergies beyond the borders of their respective disciplines. With this transversality, it is intended to expand the sense of the use of life as an element of construction, as well as to put on the table future fields of action among the specialists of the different branches in their respective centres of the USe.

The University Institute of Architecture and Building Sciences collaborates institutionally with the Seminar, and the students of the Doctorate in Architecture Programme who wish to do so, can validate the Training Activity (AF4) by providing the certificate of attendance (for the Academic Seminar, March 14th and 15th) that is issued by the organization.
