Recognizing the complexity of the world as a deliberately unfinished and constantly evolving (infra)structure, aware of the impossibility of representing its totality, ATLAS emerges as a doubly operational tool. On one hand, it facilitates the systematization of information collected during the journey, and on the other, it encourages critical analysis and academic and cultural exchange through a collaborative interface. ATLAS operates based on a continuously updated virtual archive and spatial projects such as mappings and cartographies for data visualization. ATLAS is capable of capturing the diverse dimensions of the architectural experience, from the tangible to the abstract. This drives a deeper understanding of the environment we inhabit and shape through our practice. ATLAS becomes an essential travel companion that documents, inspires, and perpetuates the legacy of this academic and human adventure, transcending its initial function to become an integral part of the Architectural Trip experience.

This tradition, is accompanied by a Faculty Team that proposes an academic project to be carried out during the travel route. This academic proposal, Atlas of Cultural Landscapes, seeks to map cultural landscapes during the trip, challenging the traditional notion of fixed geographic and cultural boundaries.


Cultural landscapes are considered an expression of the historical interaction between geography and society and, therefore, become a constantly changing canvas in which traces of the past and transformations over time become apparent. Buildings, infrastructure, traditions, and practices reflect temporal evolution and become a symbol of identity, representing the values societies share.

During the trip, students will perform as observers and documenters of the different places visited along the route through five working axes. These working axes are the guiding thread for exploring and delving into various themes and approaches. They will allow students to carry out specific work that will help them enrich their professional training or lead to further academic experiences, such as internships, research, or postgraduate studies.



The Architecture Trip is an academic experience that consolidates the undergraduate training in the FADU - UdelaR since the second decade of the 20th century. Initially, this trip took the form of the Grand Prix, a prize for academic excellence granted to a few outstanding and recently graduated architects. Subsequently, starting in 1947, the journey transformed into a collective experience for each generation.
