Final Degree Project - Design of a museum for the Royal Aeroclub of Reus

  • Coordination: Misericòrdia Domingo (coia.domingo(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Royal Aeroclub of Reus - Costa Dorada.
  • Summary: This proposal was first presented at the 1st Social Projects Marketplace, held in the Faculty of Economics and Business in Reus in April 2014. This end-of-degree project of the academic year 2014-15 was the development of the Historical Museum of the Royal Aeroclub de Reus. The organization was founded in 1935 by a few enthusiasts of the world of aviation. Since 1913 for the Festival of Reus they had hired stunt fliers like the pilot Henry Tixier to give aeronautical demonstrations over the city.

    The Aeroclub had lots of information, but it has never been synthesized and organized so that it can be put on public display. The museum will explore several historical periods: the founding of the Aeroclub de Reus (1913-1936), the causes and effects of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1947), the return to the flying school Aeroclub de Reus in 1948, the situation today and its bright future as the Universitat Rovira i Virgili's provider of the degree for Airline Pilots.

Final Degree Project - Analysis and recovery of natural and historical spaces in Tamarit

  • Coordinator: Misericòrdia Domingo (coia.domingo(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Móra-Tamarit Neighbours Association and La Sínia environmental association.
  • Summary: This study arose from the 2nd edition of the URV initiative entitled the Social Projects Marketplace, which was held in Tarragona on 28 April 2015. The project, of the academic year 2015-16, took the form of a Final Project in which students conceived and designed a tourist product that will contribute to the recovery and preservation of the urban area of Mora-Tamarit, which is in danger of degradation. Students will deal with a range of issues including biodiversity, history, urban management and sustainability. The project aims to provide information to assist in the regeneration of this environment and the development of a sustainable tourism model.
