This isn’t an easy reading website nor a space for boring people.
The development and evaluation of any of the urban prescriptions listed here have been complex processes and full of interrelationships. We continue interchanging political negotiations with urban alegality.
And, of course, constructing together the network of Arquitecturas Colectivas that offers the information, protocols and beers to the collectives and individuals that want to assume responsabilities.

Walkable Roof

Volver atrás

Synopsis


In Spain, it is still a fight not only for acceptance of alternative models of education, but also for a different approach to the design and use of spaces that serve this function. The Royal Decree 132/2010, of February 12th, establishes the minimum requirements regarding facilities for all national educational centers. This legal standard does not consider the kind of education implied and it defines –in a standard urban context–, the same spatial requirements for each center.


The project of walkable roof, commissioned by the management team of a private school in Madrid, began with the need of a space for leisure and recreation. The educational center, like so many of the country, has had to go to a Montessori cooperative, recognized by international agreements, to legalize their status without questioning obviously the values of this educational model. The proposal of including teachers, parents and students in the construction process was well received. The project is based on a wooden structure over a disused pool as a foundation, creating a covered space in a semi-basement and a playground on its cover.
