In collaboration with the Galician Center for Contemporary Art -CGAC-, we propose a series of workshops Architecture aimed at children. The objective is to provide children with the necessary keys to interpret contemporary architecture through the legacy of the most relevant figures of our time in this field.

The architects David Antuña and Víctor González and the artist Rebeca Mariño introduce participants to the exciting world of contemporary architecture. Each workshop is dedicated to a representative author of the different generations of architects from the avant-garde to the present and is developed according to the philosophy of each creator.

The game is essential during all sessions. The didactic of Sistema Lupo is used both in terms of material and content. It is an experimental didactic that encourages individual reflection and creativity in addition to teamwork through large-scale construction dynamics.

The methodology includes a theoretical part, where an approach is made to the figure and thought of each architect, and then a series of constructive challenges are posed.


5ª edition program
The CGAC presents the fifth edition of this cycle of workshops dedicated to contemporary architecture for children. And as is traditional, we will close the program with a workshop aimed at families.

The aim of the workshops is to provide children with the tools and keys necessary to interpret the architecture of our time through the theories, projects and works of the most important architects and architects of recent times. Like each edition, the themes will be treated transversally using the architecture as a guiding thread. In this case we use the figure of the author to introduce ourselves into creative worlds through his thinking.

Lupo System is committed to an active, experimental didactics, a mixture of theory and practice where the game is the true binder of a creative dynamic of a cooperative nature. In parallel, the Lupo didactics themselves have a commitment to the development of cooperative game tools where the construction game is the focus of the research.
