Description

A musical island, that is what San Simón becomes one weekend a year. And there we were, at the bottom of the Vigo estuary, in the Galician summer, surrounded by ancient trees and with provisions of food and drink “dabondo”. Nobody knew who would play those days, but what was clear was that there was going to be an atmosphere, that we would have a great time and we would like to repeat it. And it is that the site is not very big but still full of spectators it becomes wide and relaxed, the place and the environment are taken care of, all the participants are taken into account and, on top of that, it is reached by boat. What else?

Among the attendees, a lot of intrepid families, or what is the same, many people (of all ages) eager to play big. And for that we were there. Lupo system with art and Garabato colleagues hand in hand colonizing the space, by land, sea and air! Throughout Saturday and Sunday, with children and adults, we designed, assembled, disassembled, adjusted and built without stopping everything that we thought could be needed and there were not: small shelters-cabins for little brothers and little sisters, towers, forts and geodesic domes under which we could even camp. The star project was the specific scenario for the family audience, a macro-structure of Palitroques hanging in the middle of a grove of fruit trees, under which Esteban & Manuel acted for us while the sun began to fall. Go enjoy, the best prize for an afternoon of work.

The island was too small for us, and we wanted to conquer the sea, so we set up some structures in a canoe and one after another we went sailing, nobody comes close to our conquered island without seeing our floating architectures!

While this happened in the south of San Simón, to the north, on the island of San Antonio, another group of robinsones wanted to know sustainable construction techniques, even if it was at the cost of staining and soaking (playing with water and mud in summer, how fatal …) We learned the technique of “pallabarro” that, with natural and immediate materials (straw and mud), allows to build small constructions made by ourselves. There we were, mixing, draining, formwork and demolding piece by piece, to let them dry in the sun before putting them into use. The result? A new technique learned, a lot of new Lupo parts, smiling and dirty faces and zero environmental impact.

Everything that surrounds SinSal is mysterious and wonderful, that’s why it is not possible to promise anything, but maybe next year we will see ourselves again in the islands willing to play a lot, learn more and have a better time, if it is possible. I wish yes!

 

The weekend of October 6-7 was the Autumn Sinsal at the Museo do Mar de Galicia, in Vigo. And as they promised us good music, good architecture and good sea we did not even have to think about it and there we presented our didactic, a lot of pieces and palitroques and camera.

The plan was to follow the idea that Aldo Rossi and César Portela had when they proposed the building: what better way to make a museum on the sea than putting the Vigo estuary around us in the exhibition space. They opened windows on the walls to create living pictures of marine scenes, we started building our windows but creativity, inspiration and a little madness were derived in the intervention on the architecture itself. The boys and girls, and some older spontaneous, set out to modify the gaps with lattices, partial bricklaying, anthropomorphic sculptures … All to maximize the concept of “window”, the maritime environment and the foam itself green.

Encouraged by the success of the project and already with confidence among us we decided to make a replica of the characteristic facade. “Niquelao”. It is true that there was an anecdotal collapse, about a small worker who took a bath of pieces of foam, but both the process and the result would have enchanted Rossi himself, clearly.

When the space itself is so good it is great to see how it becomes the object of the dynamic and the excuse to not stop playing. So, without realizing it, they spent 3 hours without stopping to do and undo and a lot of photos that do not come to do justice to what happened there.

To work like that, and with background music, is the most. You will continue having us ready to appear in the Sinsal that arise and in the Museum of the Sea whenever it is.

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.



Sistema Lupo in O Papagaio

Starting this month Sistema Lupo collaborates with O Papagaio, the children’s newspaper that every month will be in the galician schools with a challenge. In this issue we just introduce ourselves, download the pieces of the lupoweb and start!

Soon new news on this collaboration between Sistema Lupo and O Papagaio …


Chronicle of the Summer Campus in Xixón in 2017

Someone once said:”When in Rome, do what the Romans do”. So, we went to the Roman Villa of Veranes, we romanized ourselves mentally and did things the way they did.

Every day, during a week in August, 13 madmen of Rome, architecture and fun got up a little early (in summer!) to spend the morning immersed in Roman construction.

When you’re less than 9 years old and you see an image of Vitruvius, you can’t help but laugh, so the day couldn’t have started any better. Once we had overcome the lack of venustas, we focused on what he had written, and through the firmitas, the utilitas and the venustas we went through the cities, the villages and even the military camps of the Roman Empire. We learned how to build buildings that last at least 2000 years, what solutions and ingenious ways to make them work and what are the most appropriate shapes and elements in each case.

And then let’s get to work! We were doing everything we could think of the ancient Roman engineers would do: Reading plans to make small scale models or giant constructions, organizing a team and dividing the tasks between them, assessing the skills of each one, working as a team to build big works, devising wind bracing systems, explore and analyze the Roman Villa to learn “in situ”, design and draw the plans of our own triumphal arches so that others know how to replicate it, if we even stake out a river to bridge it! With auction of pieces included!

All in all, we learned a lot about Roman architecture, but above all we had a great time including our own ideas and carrying them out among all of us who, in reality, are more difficult (and also more fun).

For more summers in Veranes! ¡SPQR!

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 !!!!

External Analysis of Rethinking the School

Recently the good practices of our activity Repensando a Escola have been analyzed by the professor / doctoral Jorge Conde Miguélez in his work for the Master in Research in Education, Cultural Diversity and Community Development of the University of Santiago de Compostela.

The conclusions have been that the project fulfills to a high degree the criteria of good practices in education from the community perspective. They have been analyzed from the point of view of innovation, sustainability, effectiveness, sustainability, replicability, ethics or the capacity to generate empowerment and networking.
