The analysis of the social reality and the problems related to housing has become a necessary objective on the part of public administrations in recent years. Recent R&D contracts between the administrations and the university have shown the need to train professionals in crosscutting knowledge and provide them with special sensitivity to issues of social content (diversity, gender, etc.). In the case of teaching in Architecture in Barcelona, a new subject has emerged entitled "Housing and Sustainability: Physical Rehabilitation and Social and Urban Regeneration" in the framework of the public master's degree program that entitles to pursue the profession of Architect (MArq-ETSAB). This subject focuses on the provision of transversal knowledge that responds to a complex reality that covers both purely technological issues as well as social and management aspects. The present paper presents the innovative teaching methodology applied in this subject, which involves teachers from different areas, contact with the administrations and competence and skill training on fieldwork. In addition, the results obtained by the students are analysed.
