Tribute to José Gómez del Collado – Pilpayu

Video summary in RTPA news.
On November 10, the schoolchildren of Cangas del Narcea immersed themselves in the architecture of José Gómez del Collado thanks to the initiative of Sistema Lupo in collaboration with the Ilmo. Ayuntamiento de Cangas del Narcea and the architect José Ramón Puerto.

José Gómez del Collado was one of the great Asturian architects of the 20th century, developing most of his work in the Canguese town, although you can find his buildings in Pola de Allande, Tineo or Navia, among other places in our region.

Coinciding with the anniversary of his birth and one year after his work has been admitted to the Iberian DOCOMOMO Register of Architecture, students from four schools in Cangas will be able to discover his figure and architecture.

Sistema Lupo has prepared a didactics based on the maxim:
“They told me and I forgot, I saw and understood, I did and learned.”

After a visit by the schoolchildren to Pepe Gómez’s main works in Cangas, the children stepped into the architect’s shoes and built their own version of the buildings. José Ramón Puerto, architect and Doctor of History with a thesis on Gómez del Collado, accompanied the students on their journey to discover the secrets and why the buildings they see every day.

Summer course of UIMP Galicia

This summer we have shared experiences with teachers of children and comrades coming from all over the peninsula within the training course of teachers of Early Childhood Education of UIMP Galicia “Game and spaces as educational tools”.

A week full of encounters, laughter, play and lots of energy. The summer course of UIMP Galicia has revealed the importance of bringing together faculty and teams of architects working on the educational progress.

We have some photos of the theoretical-practical class with a visit to #Eiron, old city of Coruña, #lupohouse and the recreation of the #sardiña of Anton Lezcano that was the final activity of the course “Beyond the Limit”.

We are looking forward to repeat it, a kiss to all !!!!

Lupo in the School – CEIP Ramón Otero Pedrayo

These images are a small summary of the first trimester in the LUPO system architecture workshop that is being carried out in school during school hours for all elementary students.

LUPO is an educational tool that cooperatively develops logical and creative thinking with different challenges and levels of difficulty. It is based on learning playful.
Starting from architecture and the traditional game of building blocks, mathematics, drawing, physics, art, history or design extend its didactics transversally and it aims to develop creative and social skills through group dynamics due to the size and characteristics of the proposed challenges.


30 April – 1 May 2016

Workshop held at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo -CGAC- within the cycle MIES é + dedicated to authors representative of contemporary architecture.

In this workshop we know the relationship that Frei Otto had with the forms of nature and how he was based on the observation of this to deepen the design of structures.
