DIALOGUES:

 
 

DIALOGUES are brief visits to a community, usually for an entire day. 

They are organised in three parts: first thing in the morning, a short synthesis of our ideas about how we can learn to make architecture today, using very simple cartoons...  

...followed by a practical question to start putting into practice the ideas presented in the debate, by asking everyone to think and make a folding, transportable, light chair -sometimes just a hat- with whatever materials are at hand, and generating no waste in the whole process.  

...after lunch everyone is already sitting on the chairs, that form a circle around which we open a debate, challenging, discussing and deconstructing these ideas.

This is a brief map, drawn from memory, of our excursions in order to share our thoughts, questions and knowledge about making architecture:
