The CGAC presents the seventh edition of this series of workshops for children on modern architecture.

The workshops, to be held on the last weekend of every month, will be run by the architect and educator Fermín Blanco with the support of the Lupo System teaching staff. The aim is to provide children with the necessary tools and keys to interpret contemporary architecture through the theories, projects and works of the most important architects of recent times.

The Lupo System opts for an active, experimental teaching system using a combination of theory and practice where play is the true binding force of a cooperative creative dynamic.

The subjects will be addressed using a cross-cutting approach with architecture as the guiding thread. With the help of different authors, we will immerse ourselves in creative worlds through their thoughts.

The educational project is based on generating didactics and designing resources using all kinds of materials (wood, plastic sheets, sponge, clay, synthetic mixes, etc.), in addition to exploring the immaterial world—which opens up many possible combinations, forms, proportions, balancing games and action strategies. The dynamic process suggested encourages individual creation and reflection, as well as teamwork through games and large-scale construction.

In this edition, we will delve into the thoughts of the great pioneers, placing special emphasis on our women pioneers. We will project our own Japanese-style capsule towers from a Metabolist perspective; we will penetrate the world of measurements from the anthropometric to the normative alongside the Neufert family; we will address bioconstruction from a contemporary stance through the work of Lacaton and Vassal and we will reflect on the utopia of the city and territory on the basis of the work and thought of César Manrique, from a landscape perspective, and Jane Drew, from an urban perspective.
