This paper aspires to study building solutions to give immediate responses to the deficit of schools due to the fast growth of the children?s population in the urban expansion of the big cities and the migratory flows for different social-economic reasons. The industrialized construction has to built in short periods of time (8-10 months) an scholar architecture of quality with sustainable industrial processes of minimum residues with easy joint in work to obtain an hipper-static final structure. We studied the structure of four schools representing the four principal typologies of the industrialization systems: ? WIS:Weighty Industrialization System, with concrete porch. School L?Olivera in Sant Cugat del Vallés. ? LISms: Light Industrialization System, with modulate structure. School Can Roca in Terrassa. ? LISim: Light Industrialization System, with integral metallic module. School Nou in S.Andreu de la Barca. ? LISp: Light Industrialization System, with metallic porch. School Guerau de Liost in Granollers. This paper concludes with the basic criterions to decide the optimum industrialization system depending on the circumstances that avoid the construction of every school.
