The main idea of the workshop is to create performative prototypes which allow to reconnect the participants with nature working directly with her. For that reason, we should say that the aim of this workshop is double.

On one hand, we will analyse the environment, its vegetation, sounds, views, textures… so as to recognize it in order to create this spacial prototypes from natural materials that converse with the enviroment.

On the other hand, we would have to carry out a creative work in order to convert the organic material from the space around the Festival into small installations that strengthen the dialogue with nature, learning to deal with creativity and techniques of construction at the same time and discovering the properties of each material and its way of use.

We want to project and build together some small intimistic spaces from where participants and residents would be able to feel the nature and reconnect themselves with her through the senses.


The workshop will mainly be an open space for collective experimentation. At the first moment, the group will work from the senses, listening, tasting, and feeling the places and its characteristics. Then, after sharing and discussing together the different ideas, we will concretize 2 or 3 structures by designing and building them.

The division of the workshop in small phases (recognition of the place -design – construction) will allow participants to get involved at different moments of its development.



During the IFAC Portugal 2017, we made also another social and collective experiment activating an abandoned urban space.

Of private ownership, this piece of land seemed to have not a particular quality.

After some clean, he began to take shape…

Using only recycled material found abandoned in the street, we made all the garden’s furnitures.

Only the roof of the cover is made by natural material.

At the end the result was unexpected for everybody.
