self-construction workshop, payground transformation

Through this project we seek to rethink the courtyards as a place where a relationship between partners and colleagues can be established and the right conditions for working responsiveness, respect and autonomy can be generated through activities that offer a variety of options; spaces that not only encourage movements full of vitality, but also curiosity, privacy and tranquility, as well as contact and learning through nature.

The project simultaneously works on two axes: the observation of the space and the dynamics of relation and the physical transformation incorporating innovative elements that materialize and promote the desired change of the educational community through interventions of design and construction community.
