CITINET is a joint learning space which was firstcarried out by three schools of architecture in Spain and Brazil in the academic year 2013-14. The purpose of the activities included in this learning space wasto analyze and represent the contemporary city by means of photographic media. CITINET is a derivation of the blended-learning model established by the course Systems of Representation which has been taught at the School of Architecture la Salle since 1999. A joint structure of learning activities have been performed by the students of the three schools using a common web-based learning environment. Each school has applied different strategies to adapt this joint structure to their own courses. The reflections on the results obtained will help to develop strategies to reinforce the process of collective knowledge construction initiated in this first implementation.
