This paper is performing the result of an international workshop which was held in Caen by ESITC and it focuses on the impacts that this workshop had on international students, in terms of technical and non-technical aspects. The workshop was intended for the design and construction of a real project in Honfleur which is a small town, about 7700 inhabitants, located on the south bank of the Seine estuary opposite Le Havre just next to the outlet of the Pont de Normandie in France. This article focuses on modeling new plans for the existing buildings in this area and renovating them and also modeling new buildings with the mixture of various functions like housing, economic activities, stores and market, culture and sport spaces, green spaces, and so on for the age diversity from newborn to old independent people. The modeling is based on healthy bio and geo and eco-materials. The used energy is renewable and sustainable and no fossil energy should be used for this project. Methods used in the project are design building and working with professional software like Revit, BIM, Sketchup, and Autocad, site visits, lab work, collecting theoretical data, guidelines, collaboration with experts from academic institutions and professional companies. This workshop not only helped the students to gain technical skills and experiences but also made the situation for them to have the chance to improve their English and international relationship, involved in teamwork with students from different European countries and do some practices in managerial aspects.
