City Splash! for Copa Cagrana Neue | ecosistema urbano + transform.city proposal for Vienna

Category : ⚐ EN + architecture + city + ecosistema urbano + landscape + news + sustainability + technologies + urbanism



Last November we were selected, in collaboration with Transform.city, to participate in the Neue Copa Cagrana International shortlisted competition in Vienna (Austria). The scope of the competition was the urban revitalization and definition of the Master Plan in the area Neue Copa Cagrana defining an urban proposal and the relationship of this part of the city with the river.
We were selected along with other 8 teams, including renowned firms such as Dominique Perrault, AZPML, or West 8.

The context: Donau City, Vienna

The study area is located next to Donau City, on the left bank of the new Danube Canal, Neue Donau, passing through the city of Vienna. It is a neighborhood of mainly tertiary character with office buildings of great height, developed in the last 20 years, including the Vienna International Centre.

Copa Cagrana – the intervention area, between the Danube and the new urban area with the D. Perrault’s tower

Despite the good connection with the city center, the large number of buildings and the excellent existing natural qualities, the area is almost deserted during day and night. This is mainly due to the lack of variety of uses, commercial facilities and recreational areas.
The proposal develops a series of strategies to revitalize an area that already has the optimal conditions to become a landmark for the city of Vienna:

FOUR OBJECTIVES

1 – Increase density and urban mixture

The proposal aims to incorporate urban, commercial and leisure life at a time when Vienna is starting to look for other forms of identity for the river area. It is important to bring new residents to help to create urban activity throughout day and night, summer and winter seasons by permanent and temporary uses. The mixed-use and residential functions in the first row, including the urban boulevard, have the potential to complete and complement the existing urban fabric and establish, for the first time, the necessary connections to make Donau City a functioning and exciting neighbourhood.

Activity diagram for the different seasons

The project proposes a high density urban prosthesis, combining housing, office, commercial and public space, in order to create an active urban spot connected to the surrounding, improving its identity and multiplying the possibilities of use.
The proposal seeks to make Donau City easier to be understood and perceived, with a clear connection to Danube river and its waterfront. Therefore, the proposal is the missing link to the completion of the Donaustadt and is, at the same time, the necessary catalyst to enable the urban regeneration in the area.

2 – Create new urban spots

Copa Cagrana will be an exciting new urban spot in Wien, which is perfectly connected to the city network thanks to the transport connectivity and subway line. Through the physical proximity with existing Donau City, Donau Insel and surrounding neighborhoods, the area will increase popularity and will offer more attractions to the users.
The newly created waterfront will be an urban catalyser with a variety of urban functions, with uses according to the seasons and day and night time:
The FILTER ZONE is a more quiet area free of commercial activities.
The TEMPORARY ZONE changes according the different seasons, with beach bars in the summer, pop-up restaurants, terraces and platforms, etc.
The WATERFRONT is an enjoyable walkable strip with piers and exciting water activities for summer and winter.

The FILTER ZONE

3 – Renaturing (urban+nature landscape)

A new urban and natural environment intrinsically connected with surrounding nature.
It will be the connecting environment between Donauinsel and Donau Park but also extending its limits over the water landscape of Neue Donau to create a vibrant and diverse waterscape.

 

Masterplan 1:1000

4 – Digital Identity – web app strategy

It is important to create the communication channels in order to advertise and share information about the ongoing activities and as a way to share potential ideas to be implemented. This web APP is thought to work as a social network that provides information for the citizens of Copa Cagrana on what kind of activities they can do on this renewed urban area.
Users will be able to register and create a user profile, with this, they will have the opportunity of proposing activities that will make use of the beautiful surroundings and installations of this urban space. The commercial sector will also have their own space. They will have the possibility of creating a profile which will allow them to publicize their products and business, as well as invite and inform citizens about special deals, offers, events and other celebrations.

 

FIVE NEW URBAN ZONES

Cross Section

Seeking to achieve these four objectives, the proposal creates 5 zones acting together and related to each other:

Zone C+: Infiltration city

The energy of city life will splash towards Donau City and the urban plinth will extend its limits to bring activity and reconfigure the public spaces around the corporative and residential buildings. These urban tentacles will extend urban plinth limits with linear and small scale pavilions, pop-up stores and cafes, etc. reconnecting and renewing the pedestrian pathways of the Donau city.

Elevation

Zone C: Social life city

Zone C proposal is the most powerful urban energy boost, as it provides a large amount of overlapped new programs and public spaces easily accessible at different levels.
Areas:
Urban plinth: fragmented construction from 1 to 4 stories high, multiple programs with predominance of commercial spaces overlapped with public spaces at different levels.
Vertical ecosystems: housing towers with a myriad of different typologies to create a diverse neighbourhood. The housing units help to create a dense neighbourhood with urban life throughout the day.
Urban bridge: On the tenth floor, same level as the top terrace of the existing linear building of social housing, a bridge is creating connections between semi public spaces, with diverse programs within the vertical ecosystems.
Public peaks: the top floor of the different towers is also part of the network of semi public spaces within the vertical ecosystems. These spaces can hold multiple programs and part of their success will be the privileged point of view of the city (terraces, cafes, common spaces,… )

Zone B: nature city

This is a zone where nature is predominant and the urban plinth is melting its limits with the landscape. At the same time, the natural character of this area helps to make the transition between the bigger, urban scale of zone C and both the lower scale of zone B and the waterscape towards Donauinsel, combining natural areas with paths for soft mobility.

Different cross sections in zones A and B

Zone A: Leisure city

Leisure cityscape to allow the transition between the formal city and the vibrant and ever changing new waterscape of zone C+. It will hold multiple permanent uses but also temporary programs and seasonal activities. There are multiple temporary and permanent uses in small buildings with similar language, as well as a new riverside walk that will extend to create a comfortable linear space. The relationship with water and the elevation difference will be resolved with a wooden platform that will act as an urban sofa to relax and enjoy the presence and proximity of the river.

Zone A+: Water city

Vibrant and ever changing waterscape in continuous evolution. It will extend the activities of the new urban spot towards the water.

Masterplan 1:2000

+ water pier: permanent pier, water thematic. Light structure with indoor and outdoor spaces to allow the creation of different bathing experiences. The use will change seasonally, during the winter, outdoor and indoor climatized pools will allow the user to be in connection with the surrounding natural landscape while having a pleasant bathing experience.

The water pier for summer activities

+ ice pier: permanent pier, ice and climbing sports oriented. Light structure with a strong seasonal connection. During the winter, part of the structure will be a huge frozen and faceted vertical surface to practice ice climbing, while the lower platform will host different ice skating outdoor rinks to practice in connection with the water and natural landscape. During the summer the ice surface is transformed into a huge waterfall falling from the upper level into the river.

The ice pier for winter climbing

+The urban archipelago: big modular and floating ever changing extension of the waterfront. The different seasons and uses will dramatically transform its configuration. This mutant landscape is built with modular floating platforms/barges that can be combined to create larger flat surfaces if necessary. These platforms can be connected to the limit line of the waterfront to extend its surface.

Next friday, Belinda Tato will participate in the Doctor design Conference 2016 lecture, #decoding practice, at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard. 

Other speakers include Benjamin H. BrattonJohn van NostrandVyjayanthi V. Rao and Antón García Abril, among others.

An extract from the conference brief: 

The conference investigates the impact of codes, concerned with mapping of environments, demarcation of legal territories, operational protocols of logistics and risk management, and codes of building and subtraction. By exposing the spatial and socio-cultural implications of micro-politics embedded in the hidden codes and protocols, we speculate about the potential agency of design practices mediating between processes of normalization, and the live, complex, and unpredictable ecologies of human habitation.

Belinda Tato will present ecosistema urbano’s latest projects in Latino America, Russia and Europe.

ecosistema urbano at recoded city : co-creating urban futures | book launch

Category : ⚐ EN + city + ecosistema urbano + events + news + publications + urbanism

cover-1

We are very glad to announce that next Monday 11 January 2016 there will be the official launch of the book Recoded City : Co-Creating Urban Futures, written by Thomas Ermacora (@termacora) and Lucy Bullivant Routledge (@Urbanista_org), where some of ecosistema urbano recent projects are featured.

Recoded City is a global survey of participatory placemaking and distributed urbanism, burgeoning movements engaging citizens in advancing visions for their cities and towns, and supporting their well-being through localised design and self-governance.

Co-authored by regeneration architect and impact entrepreneur Thomas Ermacora and writer and curator Lucy Bullivant, Recoded City examines the potential of citizen-led collaborative neighbourhood renewal strategies emerging in the interstices of rigid, top-down masterplanning, which has seen identity stamped out of place. During the years 2010-13 the number of city dwellers increased by 200,000 per day. In our urbanised world it is vital that we make cities which are more resilient, future proofing neighbourhoods by making them relevant to and reflective of the people who live there.

But the top-down city has alienated people. In the modern globalised world extreme forms of capitalism overshadow human rights, and government resources are increasingly depleted. Whether by repairing the damage of natural disaster or healing the pains of uninspired planning, communities are starting to work proactively to pursue a localised placemaking which is more responsive, resource-efficient and holistic in its approach. At the same time architecture has been expanding as a multidisciplinary field.

The authors advocate architecture and urban design which is socially engaged and motivated by a civic duty to help the 90%, not the privileged 10%. In the Recoded City architects are enablers and facilitators, working with citizens for a better future.

The lauch event will take place at House of St Barnabas in London from 6.30 to 9.00 pm.

ecosistema urbano at 2015 Shenzhen — UABB bi-city biennale of urbanism and architecture

Category : ⚐ EN + architecture + ecosistema urbano + events + networkedurbanism + news + research + technologies + urban social design + urbanism + video


overall view

Between November and December 2015 we spent one week in Shenzhen on the occasion of the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture, being invited by curators Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner to be part of the Radical Urbanism section of the exhibition. The brief of this edition of the Biennale is “Re-Living the city”, a reflection about reuse and rethinking existing buildings, the reimagination of our cities, and the remaking of our daily lives by design. The main location of the event was connected to the topic of the Biennale: the former Dacheng Flour Factory has been transformed into a massive container of thoughts and innovative practices in urbanism without hiding its recent past of industrial activity and its uncertain future.

The Dacheng Flour Factory_ Image: UABB

Our installation at the UABB Biennale, called Networked Urbanismdisplays a selection of pilot projects exploring physical and immaterial urban improvement, a critical catalogue of their urban contexts, the understanding of urban complexity and the new tools developed to address it. The colourful multimedia exhibition displays 10 pilots projects, implemented during the past 10 years in different contexts around the world, but also displays 1 mockup, a real scale version of an urban furniture design.

The Networked Urbanism Installation reflects the working method: an overall strategic vision that relies on short term punctual and powerful interventions in specific and emblematic spots (pilot projects), rather than long term and high resources urban strategies. Ecosistema Urbano’s projects empower people and engage citizens in the tangible transformation of the places where they live.

The definition and final layout of the installation was an intense process of research and real scale experimentation to find interactions between graphic design, communication, animation and optical effects. We tried to show the common philosophy behind each project in a very visual and communicative way. Each pilot project is communicated with a graphic slogan synthesizing the nature of the intervention and its message, a reference to the city where the project is implemented, and a description of the overall urban strategy.

10 pilot projects

Moreover, a digital layer of information is added to the graphic display. 5 multimedia dioramas provide an intriguing representation of the following pilot projects: Exuma Garden of Dreams, Dreamhamar, Asunción Open Lab,  Voronezh Sea Revitalization, and Encarnación Sustainable Development Territorial Plan.

The other 5 pilot projects presented in Networked Urbanism installation are described throughout short movies displayed as holograms, thanks to a DIY fascinating technique. The videos of the projects Ecobulevard, Air Tree Shanghai, Ecópolis Plaza, Energy Carousel, Escuela Febres intervention in Cuenca , explain with 3d holograms the complexity of this interventions, showing the different layers and their several possible points of view and configurations.

ecosistema urbano at ISU talks #3: Ruralism | international conference in Braunschweig, Germany

Category : ⚐ EN + landscape + news + sustainability + urbanism

Snoehetta_Petter-Dass-Museum_04

Next November 18th, Belinda Tato will be keynote speaker at the International Conference, ISU Talks #03: Ruralism organised by the Institute for Sustainable Urbanism. Other speakers include Snøhetta, OMA/AMO, etc…

The institute is located in Braunschweig, Germany and according to their own definition is part think-tank, part design laboratory, committed to promoting research and scholarship on sustainable urbanism in an international and interdisciplinary setting.

Since October 2012, ISU is lead by Prof. Dr. Vanessa Miriam Carlow, within TU Braunschweig’s Department of Architecture, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences. ISU has worked with partners in Africa, Asia, South America, USA, and all over Europe. ISU has four themes under which its teaching and research projects fall: Space as Resource, City in Society, Impossible Sites, and Urban-Rural Relations.

Here is a brief introduction to the Conference:

In the current city-centred discourse, rural spaces are often dismissed as declining or stagnating. However, rural spaces also play a critical role in sustainable development, as an inextricably linked counterpart and complement to the growing city, as extraction sites, natural reservoirs, providing for ecosystem services or leisure spaces.
The city and the countryside are evermore increasingly mutually reliant. A closer look at the countryside unveils a set of dynamics overlaying and changing rural space, beyond trends of depopulation and shutdown of public facilities. The once remote and quiet countryside is now traversed by global and regional flows of people, goods, waste, energy and information, interrelating it with the larger urban system, even bringing it to the frontlines of regional transformation and sustainability.

The conference proposes the following questions:
– How can the contemporary rural be conceived of and described?
– What new concepts for rural living currently exist?
– How are urbanisation and ruralisation processes connected?
– Can impulses for the design of urban space be drawn from the imagined and practiced connections between the urban and the rural?
– How can we formulate a (new) vision for ‘ruralism’?

Más información y programa

A continuación un extracto de la temática:

Ciudades Intermedias: Crecimiento y Renovación Urbana

Los procesos de urbanización y desarrollo acelerado de los asentamientos humanos dieron entre los resultados, a las grandes metrópolis o megalópolis, escenarios poco favorables en los que, a menudo, ha sido difícil alcanzar buenos niveles de calidad de vida. Sin embargo, también han puesto en primer plano a las llamadas ciudades intermedias como centros que acogen la mayor cantidad de la población urbana a nivel global y que son sometidas a continuos cambios en su “nicho” ecológico por su propia dinámica económica y social.

Es en este marco que estas ciudades, también denominadas como ciudades “secundarias o menores”, surgen como “intermediarias” no solo en tamaño y escala, sino fundamentalmente en funcionalidad. Estas ciudades sufren procesos de construcción y reconstrucción que no se equiparan a los trascendentes cambios sociales y culturales, que conllevará asumir también múltiples desafíos, puesto que es preciso “modificar lo existente”, extraer todo aquello que ha sido identificado como “obsoleto” e insertar nuevas estructuras de “soporte vital” para la urbe y especialmente su periferia.

Varios espacios hablan a nivel mundial del “poder de las ciudades intermedias”, como si de ellas dependiera encontrar una apuesta o alternativa a futuro para responder las exigencias identificadas para los próximos años, o si su pronunciamiento fuese una voz calificada a nivel mundial al momento de formular propuestas y soluciones prácticas que funcionen y sean asumidas como buenos ejemplos para alcanzar un desarrollo urbano sostenible en diferentes áreas geográficas y culturales.


⚐ EN – Ecosistema Urbano will be participating in an advisory board meeting next Tuesday,  November 10, in Cuenca, Ecuador, together with several other participants. The event is part of “The Urban Dialogues”, which host a series of e-discussions over the course towards Habitat III (October 17-20, 2016) with the aim of integrating all voices and bringing forward new and emerging thinking in the elaboration of the New Urban Agenda.

The Urban Dialogue on Intermediate Cities will enable people all around the world to join the debate, bringing together a broad range of stakeholders, as well as citizens, to discuss major ideas and issues of topic of the Thematic Meeting to be held in Cuenca, 9-11 November.

The online debate will provide inputs for the Final Declaration.

Centro Histórico Abierto | ecosistema urbano lanzando un proceso participativo en Honduras

Category : ⚐ ES + Centro Histórico Abierto + ciudad + comunicación + creatividad + ecosistema urbano + educación + espacio público + eventos + participación + proyectos + work in progress

banner

El día 29 de Junio dio comienzo uno de los proyectos que estamos desarrollando durante estos meses: Centro Histórico Abierto, un proceso participativo para la transformación urbana del Distrito Central de Honduras. El proyecto está promovido por el BID —Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo— y por la Alcaldía Municipal del Distrito Central de Honduras.

Centro Histórico Abierto se incluye en el marco del desarrollo del nuevo Eje Urbano Ambiental del Río Choluteca a través del programa ICES (Iniciativa Ciudades Emergentes y Sostenibles) del BID. El proyecto propone una serie de herramientas que posibiliten un proceso de comunicación bidireccional entre las diferentes instituciones y la ciudadanía, permitiendo que el futuro desarrollo y transformación urbana del Distrito Central de Honduras se realice con el empuje y la creatividad necesarias.

Las distintas actividades propuestas tienen como objetivo reflexionar sobre el centro histórico y sensibilizar sobre el tema del espacio público para intentar extraer conclusiones y definir estrategias para lograr un espacio más habitable, más integrado socialmente, más sostenible y con una economía más activa.

El espacio público es donde tienen lugar la mayor parte de las interacciones que caracterizan un entorno urbano. Un espacio público rico es un espacio abierto, inclusivo, dinámico, diverso, un lugar de encuentro capaz de generar sinergias, un lugar para todos, en el que la participación de cada persona que lo ocupa, lo define y caracteriza. Igualmente un espacio público contemporáneo debe incorporar la dimensión digital, fomentando y multiplicando la interacción entre las esferas física y digital, interconectadas e interdependientes.

Por esta razón los temas que abordamos durante las actividades giran en torno al concepto de espacio público, como eje transversal que afecta y condiciona distintas esferas de la vida urbana: economía y sociedad, medio natural, seguridad o accesibilidad.

TEMAS DE PROYECTO

Diagrama de los temas de proyecto

GIF-ESPACIO-PUBLICO

Las actividades se desarrollan online e in situ en diferentes ubicaciones del Centro Histórico de Tegucigalpa y Comayagüela. Una de las ubicaciones seleccionadas para la realización de las actividades es el MIN – Museo para la Identidad Nacional de Honduras, uno de los espacios activos del panorama cultural hondureño, institución que está ya trabajando desde la acción en la regeneración urbana. Ya introdujimos su trabajo en este post.

Los talleres in situ son concebidos para los distintos grupos de interés identificados en el contexto y con las herramientas y dinámicas más apropiadas para cada grupo. Los resultados generados a través de los distintos formatos participativos sirven para informar al propio proceso de transformación de la ciudad aumentando la conciencia ciudadana y generando un interés que permite impulsar el desarrollo económico y sostenible de dicha transformación.

Categorias talleres-01

Actividades in situ

Las actividades con las que comenzamos se centran en tres grupos:

+ Niños

El objetivo es acercar a niños y adolescentes al desarrollo de su ciudad a través de la reflexión y la creatividad, haciéndoles más conscientes de lo que sucede a su alrededor y de su propia capacidad de interpretación e intervención en el entorno. Con este objetivo hemos diseñado dinámicas y ejercicios de creación individual y de trabajo en equipo. Las creaciones individuales están concebidas de forma que, una vez realizadas, se puedan combinar para formar una instalación mayor que pueda ser expuesta posteriormente en las escuelas y en la plataforma digital. Los talleres infantiles incluyen una fase de reflexión y otra propositiva.

 

KIT TALLER INFANTIL

gif-kit-ninos

Ya en ocasiones anteriores (Asunción, Hamar, Exuma, etc) habíamos empleado  kits de participación escolar para niños de diferentes edades y los resultados siempre han sido extremadamente interesantes. ¡Estamos seguros de que también los niños hondureños nos sorprenderán por su fantasía y creatividad!

ninos new2

+ Estudiantes Universitarios

El objetivo de estos talleres es involucrar a los jóvenes universitarios y futuros profesionales de la ciudad en una actividad colectiva de reflexión urbana, prestando especial atención al espacio público, su calidad, desafíos y posibilidades. El taller se desarrollará en dos fases, cada una con unos objetivos específicos.

1. Reflexión
Esta tarea corresponde con la primera etapa del workshop (semana 1) e invita a los estudiantes a reflexionar sobre los espacios públicos existentes, detectando si están infrautilizados, en desuso y cómo se convierten en una oportunidad para la ciudad. Se realizará una identificación de problemas y oportunidades, mapeado de la ciudad, imágenes, vídeos, etc. Se fomentará igualmente que establezcan mecanismos de diálogo con la ciudadanía, y que así esta actividad pueda contribuir a fomentar su interés por la participación ciudadana y el nuevo rol del diseñador.

2. Acción 
Esta tarea corresponde con la segunda etapa del workshop (semana 2) e invita a los estudiantes a pasar a la acción, implementando los proyectos o una parte significativa de los mismos en el espacio público como prototipos de reactivación urbana. Los estudiantes trabajarán en equipos multidisciplinares utilizando diferentes medios en la producción y representación de las ideas. Esperamos que estas acciones sean verdaderos catalizadores del espacio público y sirvan como experiencias demostrativas de cómo un espacio público vivo y activo puede ser el motor de la transformación económica, social y ambiental del entorno.

Los estudiantes inscritos en el taller son 88 y provienen de las tres universidades más importantes de la ciudad, la UNAH – Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras, la UNITEC y la UJCV – Universidad José Cecilio del Valle.

+ Agentes Activos

Dirigido a ciudadanos implicados en el presente y futuro urbano del Distrito Central de Honduras a través de iniciativas, emprendimientos, asociaciones, colectivos, centros culturales y buenas prácticas en general. El taller se fija el objetivo de fomentar un debate creativo entre los ciudadanos que han promovido iniciativas activadoras en la capital. Está enfocado principalmente en la mejora de la burocracia, las gestiones y la flexibilidad administrativa para permitir fomentar más iniciativas culturales, sociales, organizativas y el emprendimiento.

Actividades en línea

+ Plataforma web

Entendiendo la transformación de la ciudad como un proceso extendido en el tiempo, se crea una plataforma web con carácter informativo e interactivo. En la página centrohistorico.abierto.red se recopilan y se actualizan las informaciones sobre las actividades que se desarrollan en el marco del proyecto, mientras que en la sección de Documentación se recopila documentación de consulta pública sobre estudios previos realizados por entidades como el BID y la Municipalidad, así como una base de datos de buenas practicas urbanas sobre los temas que se tratan en el proceso participativo.
La web pretende ser un contenedor de información de todo el trabajo elaborado hasta la fecha y las actividades objeto de este proceso participativo. Un nodo de información que articule todas las actuaciones y su proyección hacia el futuro. Un punto de información sobre lo que está aconteciendo ahora y las posibilidades futuras para convertirse en una web de referencia para la transformación urbana del Distrito Central.

CENTRO HISTÓRICO ABIERTO HOMEPAGE

+ Plataforma de participación

Como en proyectos anteriores, también para el Centro Histórico Abierto hemos utilizado nuestra plataforma de participación digital Local_In, adaptada para este proyecto en la gráfica y en el contenido. Esta parte interactiva de la plataforma web se centra en el mapeo colaborativo de mensajes ciudadanos (ideas, iniciativas, recuerdos, etc.) geolocalizados sobre el área de intervención. Su diseño permite la publicación, por parte de cualquier ciudadano, de mensajes breves con imágenes, enlaces o vídeos adjuntos, así como la navegación por los mensajes ya publicados filtrándolos por categorías temáticas y etiquetas descriptivas.

PARTICICHA! PLATAFORMA DIGITAL

Plataforma digital de participación ciudadana

Estamos encantados de empezar esta nueva y apasionante experiencia, y además contar con la colaboración de Mónica Reyes y Óscar Cartagena, nuestros colaboradores locales, personas clave para el éxito del proyecto.
En breve compartiremos con vosotros las novedades y actualizaciones desde Honduras; mientras tanto podéis seguir la evolución del proyecto en la plataforma web y en la página Facebook.

Archiprix International – ecosistema urbano takes part in the Awards ceremony

Category : ⚐ EN + architecture + creativity + ecosistema urbano + events + urban social design + urbanism

archiprix_madrid2015-960x576

In the past two weeks, Madrid has been the capital of the most innovative and vibrant ideas coming from the academic environment worldwide. In fact, Madrid was chosen for the 2015 edition of Archiprix International, a biennial event that involves all schools worldwide in Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture to select their best graduation project.

The event consisted of two sections:

Towards a middle-out urbanism

All participants were invited to participate in the Archiprix International workshop, that took place at ETSAM. These best graduates from around the world form a unique group of young talented designers. From surgical interventions to visionary statements: the best graduates from all over the world were invited to Madrid and challenged to develop plans and design proposals in a multidirectional approach to the city. The workshop was conducted by DPA-ETSAM and Los Bandidos AG and tasks were led by emerging local practices.

El próximo 22 de Mayo, Belinda Tato, en nombre de ecosistema urbano, participará en la mesa redonda “PROACTIVIDAD” en la Feria Construmat dentro del Bloque de ponencias INNOVACIÓN, BIM Y DISEÑO.

Desde Beyond Building Barcelona-Construmat se quiere impulsar el Área de Innovación para que la industria de la construcción conozca los nuevos escenarios que se presentan gracias a la aplicación de la tecnología para la producción de espacios habitables sostenibles e inteligentes.

Belinda compartirá mesa junto a Victor Kuppers, licenciado en Administración y Dirección de Empresas y Doctor en Humanidades y dedicado a la formación por vocación. Entre otras actividades imparte conferencias a padres sobre “Gestión del Entusiasmo en la familia”.

Tenemos curiosidad por saber cómo se desarrolla el debate y esperamos poder contribuir positivamente a perfilar esos nuevos escenarios en los que se ha de mover el arquitecto.

Aquí puedes consultar el programa.

¡Nos vemos en Barcelona!
