During a weekend, architects from Ukraine, with contributions from Latvia, Finland and Spain collaborate with the children, exchanging opinions and ideas on architecture and the city. The complete program includes excursions, talks, workshops, music and above all lots of games and good experiences.

In the photographic summary you can see above all the activity of building models of cities of the future, for which a multitude of different materials have been used, including the pieces of Sistema Lupo.
