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.
