Traditional architecture is closely linked to the territory it is found in. However, in some instances it is also possible to find similarities and points in common between constructive techniques that are very far apart in terms of location. This text presents a teaching experience where the main aim was to bring into contact two constructive realities connected with the tradition of earthen construction and tiled vaulting.

The contemporary world is comprehensive and global, and links between students must also be so. Therefore, it is necessary to encourage multicultural reunions where students can further their knowledge of a given topic.

In this context, an experimental workshop was carried out in July 2017 at the campus of Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) with the participation of students from the SAL School of Architecture in Ahmedabad and the Higher Technical School of Architecture of Valencia. This workshop allowed students to work with distant constructive traditions that were similar to their own and this exchange allowed them to broaden their knowledge. This experience also showed the Indian students how conservation, assessment and restoration work is carried out on local heritage, extremely important now that the city of Ahmedabad has been chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
