The Fundación Cristina Heeren’s new building is already an object of study. More than fifty students from the Faculty of Architecture at the Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany) made a visit to the school last Tuesday 17 October 2017, accompanied by teacher Anett-Maud Joppien.

The group was guided in German by Raquel Fernández, philologist and responsible for administration and students in the Fundación Cristina Heeren, with assistance in English by Cathy Miller, who offered information about the new 1,500 square metre construction, designed by the Seville studio Balbontin Architects. In the auditorium, they viewed a screening of the trailer of the documentary ‘School of Flamencos’ and a photographic compilation about the construction process of the Foundation’s brand-new site, open only a few months.



Additionally, they had the opportunity to confirm in situ its use as a classroom for teaching singing, dancing and guitar, witnessing classes by teachers Paco Cortés and Juan José Amador, with their respective guitar and singing accompaniment workshops. They also admired the work of José Galán, who is giving the pioneering workshop Inclusive Flamenco for people with disabilities.

Finally, the students wanted to live their own flamenco experience. The school organised a beginner´s class for them, divided into three groups lead by monitors Coral Moreno, Carmen Young and Maria Martha Rodriguez. The goal of the activity of the German university centre is that the future architects present a building for teaching music and dance, taking the Fundación Cristina Heeren in Seville as an example.
