University of Buenos Aires and Archisinal team with Polkadot to revamp facilities

The University of Buenos Aires (UBA) and Web3 data platform Archisinal have teamed up to transform the UBA law facilities with the help of Polkadot’s (DOT) blockchain technology, according to the latest updates shared with Finbold on July 2.

Collaborating with UBA’s Innovation and Artificial Intelligence Lab (IALAB), Archisinal aims to apply blockchain technology to urban design and architecture, creating a cutting-edge learning environment. 

Students, architects, and members of the academic community alike are invited to take part in a contest and help redesign the faculty’s hearing room into a “smart classroom.”

Leveraging Polkadot’s blockchain technology, Archisinal will oversee the contest to help bring the project to fruition. 

Funded through blockchain-based collective financing, the initiative showcases the practical application of blockchain in public infrastructure projects.

The initiative is likewise a significant milestone for Archisinal, allowing the platform to test its vision within a university setting and demonstrate how blockchain can be used to promote community engagement and support public infrastructure.

UBA’s Web3 projects

The University of Buenos Aires has already begun to explore the potential of blockchain through IALAB. 

Archisinal, a key player in the Polkadot ecosystem, will build on this foundation to develop new blockchain applications at UBA.

The collaboration follows a January 2023 partnership between UBA IALAB, adLIB!, and Polkadot Blockchain Academy, led by Marina Marchesotti and Dr. Gavin Wood. 

Looking ahead

The partnership between UBA and Archisinal is expected to inspire future university initiatives. 

Archisinal, already known for multiple hackathon wins and a scholarship program from the Web3 Foundation’s Decentralized Futures, expects to drive innovative research and education further.

Ultimately, this collaboration will serve as a case study for blockchain implementation, enhancing academic research while creating a technologically advanced space for UBA law students.
