EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOPS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE.MIES IS +

The CGAC presents the fourth edition of this cycle of workshops dedicated to contemporary architecture for children. Furthermore, this year we will close the programme with a workshop aimed at families.

The workshops, which will take place the last weekend of each month, will be run by the architect Fermín Blanco, with the support of the Sistema Lupo teaching team. The goal is to provide children with the tools and skills needed to interpret present-day architecture through the theories, projects and works of the most important architects of recent times.

The Sistema Lupo is made up of a series of modular parts that allow for many different possible combinations, shapes, proportions, balancing games and action strategies. The dynamics proposed aim to encourage both individual reflection and creativity, and teamwork through games and large-scale construction. The methodology includes a theoretical part, presenting the thought and work of each architect, as well as a series of building challenges.
