‘a neighborhood to be reborn’
‘community’ project in A Coruña.
When a crisis come, the first one to suffer are the weaklings. In A Coruña it’s happening in the core of the city where a neighborhood is hidden and disconnected. There, many shops and buildings are empty and damage.
pescadería norte, the hidden neighborhood.
a fab-lab as a help tool for the neighbors.
In this urban context, it’s located my last assignment and step in the university: A Fab-Lab. The Fab-Lab would be the last tool the neighbors will need to make their dreams true and help the neighborhood and themselves as well to be reborn.
fab-lab + community.
The entire neighborhood will be the owner, as a cooperative, in order to finance, manage and use it. And everyone will be welcome.
all welcome, the street into a building.
the idea of community made into a building.
