Abstract The current context of global crisis, has shown the relevance of the urban integral regeneration of the consolidated city with the objective of reaching a qualitative improvement from the point of view of the building, environmental and social field, that could have a local and global repercussion at the same time. This qualitative improvement of the urban space requires the implication in the transformation processes of all the implicated or affected agents by them: the technicians, the citizens and the institutions. The initiative ESAZU is born as an academic initiative that pretends to break the existing barriers between these collectives and experience the common work modalities. Because of this, during last 3 years, this initiative proposes an Architecture Competition addressed to students and junior architects who have as objective the regeneration of a problematic neighbourhood of Donostia-San Sebastián, configured as a training and opinion exchange program. The process starts with a formative session and is developed through meetings and workshops where all the invited collectives are encouraged to participate. In this article the two concluded editions and its results and produced reflexions are presented. Each experience has enriched the process and has been useful for the improvement of the structure and the methodology of the initiative. The result is not only a work that is started and closed every edition; it has a continuity and look for a definition of a discussion about a new global and complex urban model.
