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.


2-3 Abril de 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 case this workshop is centered on the Danish architect Jorn Utzon where we enter the universe imagined by him. The participants got to know some of their most well-known buildings and furniture.

With the help of the SuperLupo, we are also practically approaching his work, constructing buildings inspired by the famous Sydney Opera House and UTSEP furniture.


27-28 February 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 case this workshop is centered on the Swiss architect Le Corbusier, one of the greats in the history of architecture and whose work is still reflected in the current projects.

The participants have been able to know the famous 5 points for a new architecture and many other writings and ideas that Le Corbusier raised in his time.

After this more theoretical part, during this workshop we used the SuperLupo to approach the architecture of Le Corbusier in a practical way. For this, we built some of their villas, the Unité d´Habitation or even new own designs based on their theories.


28-29 May 2016

Workshop held at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea -CGAC- within the MIES cycle is + dedicated to authors representing contemporary architecture.

This was the fourth and last workshop of the first edition of MIES e + and we introduce ourselves in the exciting world of senses that is the architecture of Kazuyo Sejima and the study SANAA that forms next to Ryue Nikishawa.

Taking advantage of the fact that we have a unique architect who comes from a different culture, we take a tour of the traditional xaponesa architecture that will help us to understand some keys of their designs.

Memoria & Fotografías

“Submerged Cities” is an example of a one day workshop in collaboration with the Aquarium Finisterrae. In this session the spectacular atmosphere created in the aquarium to engage participants in the fascinating underwater world exploits.

A first theoretical session made us to explore different examples of towns and cities under water, strategic decisions, natural disasters or legends are interspersed in the narrative, and make us travel from the nearest national examples to Port Royal in the Caribbean through the Chinese cities or India.

After this session a creative workshop where each team creates an imagined city adapted to environments recreated in the aquarium where different ecosystems, mussel rafts, ravines or simulating the continental shelf arises.

Teamwork is always a common thread in all these workshops, teams are organized and each involved in a different ecosystem.

After this creative phase a more directed from planes task leads to the construction of the Nautilus, our submarine lupo which will take us travel all these scenarios. The game presides each of the phases and helps foster the imagination of participants. In this case the presence of living beings, fish with their looks and their movements, increased the empathy and the degree of relatedness of the group.

Description & Pictures
Since 2010 Sistema Lupo develops, in collaboration with the College of Architects of Galicia (delegation of A Coruña) and Fundacion Luis Seoane, an annual course for children to approach the architecture .

Linked to the figure and thought of artist Luis Seoane, characterized by a speech in favor of integration of the arts, teaching is thus permeable to any artistic or creative expression and sometimes takes advantage of the museum exhibitions and visiting guest artists. During these years the workshop (which takes place every Saturday in sessions of two hours) has evolved and today we have two simultaneous programs widely accepted.

Aimed at children aged 6-9 years is organized into lessons that evolve in difficulty throughout the course.

We work with Lupo materials at different scales and materials and children generate a notebook where daily work is collected. Teamwork is an essential part of the workshop through Lupo challenges that close each session.

In these workshops general topics such as scale, materials, proportions, color, composition, not only applicable to architecture, but also to art or design, are discussed.

Another series of workshops bring together art and architecture from different ages and backgrounds and try to interconnect artistic expression with its social, environmental or historical conditions.

All this to try to generate in the child an optimal climate for the development of their capabilities. In a highly entertaining environment and out of school education we foster a cross teaching where everyone brings their knowledge and experiences to critically interpret the themes proposed.

Aimed at children aged 10-12 years emerged as a requirement of children who completed their passage through Nenoarquitectura and want to maintain their presence in the workshops. It is therefore an “order” of the children themselves that after a full year they dominate the issues and challenges proposed and therefore demand a higher degree of difficulty.

This block has introduced the design world even harder giving more freedom to the child in the design process and project, even providing them with the tools to create new Lupo challenges.

The use of specific software is introduced through VIRTUAL LUPO so we can include more activities related to 3D vision. The use of virtual techniques such as Augmented Reality tries to keep the connection between the virtual world and the real through challenges that project with virtual tools and built with natural joins.

The project name comes from the thesis of architect David Antunes, a regular contributor to Lupo System and monitor in these workshops who designed this teaching module for of primary school and for us it means closing an educational transfer of knowledge cycle between universities and society.

Description & Pictures
The workshop is held in October 2009 in collaboration with the School of Architecture of San Sebastian and the College of Architects Vasco-Navarro in occasion of homage to architect Luis Peña Ganchegui.

The activity involves building a 1/5 scale model of one of the most famous works of the architect, the Vista Alegre tower in Zarautz, projected in 1958 in collaboration with Jose Manuel Encio. Thirty students of the School of Architecture belonging to KoLeKTiBoLeKTiBo conduct the workshop. The replica of the work of Peña Ganchegui is built also into another author’s work as is the library of the School of Architecture of San Sebastian.

Un cubo que funcione

Con motivo de la exposición “100 años con Alejandro de la Sota” se realiza un taller infantil de arquitectura en el Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo de Galicia -CGAC-. La exposición comisariada por el arquitecto Moisés Puente ha sido realizada gracias a la colaboración de la Fundación ICO y la Fundación Alejandro de la Sota. La didáctica se centra en el estudio geométrico y funcional del “cubo” y bajo el título “un cubo que funcione” se acompaña al participante por la exposición para descubrir la fuerza de la geometría pura en la arquitectura sotiana. Tras unos primeros ejercicios en plano, pasamos a las tres dimensiones mediante el uso de estructuras alámbricas. Posteriormente  en la segunda parte del taller ayudados por los bloques de super lupo, se suceden los diferentes retos tratando de crear formas cúbicas para culminar en un trabajo de equipo basado en el cuerpo principal del ” Gobierno Civil de Tarragona” cúlmen del taller. Diferentes grupos de niños entre 7 a 11 años han participados guiados por Santi Chenlo.  Por nuestra parte agradecer a Moisés Puente, a Miguel Von Hafe y muy especialmente al equipo de didáctica del CGAC ( Viqui, Gema y Cristina)  por la posibilidad para desarrollar el taller.


How to build a piramide?
