ROMPER LAS FRONTERAS DE LAS EXPOSICIONES EN MUSEOS 

The Project is innovative from its beginning; an invitation to showcase architecture works in a gallery was transformed into an opportunity to propose a project with direct impact in the society. It promotes the field of our practice where the rol of the architect changes and gets involved in a specific study case in a foreign territory, exploring new disciplinary borders of architecture and generating new ways to particitate in the construction of the city. The project has two endings; first, an exhibition in the gallery designed as a negociation table that helps the main actors explained the project to the city and to possible founders; and second, the concept design is divided in three independent components, each one with its own way of manage, incresing the feasibility to make it real.

ENERGIA SOCIAL COMO ESTRATEGIAS DE DISEÑO, CONSTRUCCIÓN Y ECONOMIA

The project don't seek to start from scratch and pretends to change the world, it seeks to recognize the background of the community, gets involved in an ongoing process, inject adrenaline, empower people and make it happen. The whole process has been worked by open workshops and aims to promote social inclusion in all stages -community, students, professional, volunteers, institutions, etc- where all the opinions are heard and all the skills are taken into consideration. The final proposal improves the collective scope by publicizing the work of the organized community and generates new links between them and the society. In the end, the final goal as a foreign architects is to become unnecessary and let the project flows with each people in charge with a clear strategy to follow.
