This 2022 edition of DOCEXDOCE has as theme “Rising Resilience” and the site proposed was located in Sant Adrià de Besòs, situated on both sides of the Besòs estuary.
The challenge was to adapt the monumental buildings of the former Plant Power with these iconic three chemneys. 1264 students, organized in 437 teams from 25 countries, participated in the event either independently online or as part of one of the 14 onsite embassies in different European countries.

The variety of programs was noted as well as the impressive standard of graphics”. The jury gave 3 Prizes and 8 Honorable Mentions.
