Abstract

The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is assuming a comprehensive reform of the University System, affecting the different dimensions of all universities. The teaching/learning processes undergo transformations, which implies a parallel global transformation of the academic institution. As a transcendental part of it, the aforementioned integral reform has an unquestionable impact on the models of urban-architectural implementation. The Spanish and Italian university scenarios are immersed in an evolutionary dynamic in terms of their respective built corpus. Among the factors that characterize the substantial change faced by two very representative universities of both countries (Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia, and Cagliari, in Sardinia) is the relationship between university and city, as well as the configuration of their respective built complexes. Therefore, this text presents a comparison between the current realities of Santiago and Cagliari, broken down into a series of aspects: historical synthesis, university-city relationship, urban and architectural typologies, as well as current innovation dynamics. Through this transversal reading of the Galician and Sardinian universities, it is intended to lay a common foundation that provides guidelines for future evolution, in terms of innovation. The central axis of this comparison is the use of the spatial model as a vehicle of physical and social implantation. By making this thematic approach to Santiago and Cagliari, the benefit of enhancing it as a bridge between cultures is obtained, since its language and impact on different levels transcends borders.
El Espacio Europeo de Educación Superior (EEES) está suponiendo una reforma integral del Sistema Universitario, afectando a las diferentes dimensiones de todas las universidades. Los procesos de Enseñanza/Aprendizaje experimentan transformaciones, lo cual implica una paralela transformación global de la institución académica. Como parte trascendental de la misma, la referida reforma integral tiene un incuestionable impacto en los modelos de implantación urbanístico-arquitectónica. El escenario universitario español y el italiano se encuentran inmersos en una dinámica evolutiva en materia de sus respectivos corpus construidos. Entre los factores que caracterizan el cambio sustancial al que se enfrentan dos universidades muy representativas de ambos países (Santiago de Compostela, en Galicia, y Cagliari, en Cerdeña) está la relación entre universidad y ciudad, así como la configuración de sus respectivos conjuntos edificados. Por ello, el presente texto expone una comparación entre las realidades actuales de Santiago y Cagliari, desglosada en una serie de aspectos: síntesis histórica, relación universidad-ciudad, tipologías urbanísticas y arquitectónicas, así como dinámicas de innovación actuales. Mediante dicha lectura transversal de las universidades gallega y sarda, se pretende sentar un fundamento común que aporte directrices de evolución futura, en clave de innovación. El eje central de dicha comparación es el empleo del modelo espacial como vehículo de implantación física y social. Efectuando esta aproximación temática a Santiago y Cagliari, se obtiene el beneficio de realzarlo como puente entre culturas, pues su lenguaje e impacto en diversos planos trasciende fronteras.
