PEQUEÑAS CABAÑAS BIY, A BOOK THAT HELPS CHILDREN AND GROWN-UPS TO BUILD THEIR OWN HUTS

This book, published by Editorial Gustavo Gili, is a research on children's innate drive and ability to build, and an exploration on how to encourage them to share this with grown-ups by building little huts together, embarking on mutual learning and inhabiting adventures.

Search questions

As a consequence of our search as architects, we also produce understanding and knowledge made of words -written and spoken. This search revolves around twelve constant themes, questions we don’t have a definitive answer to yet. This knowledge is not just a by-product of our activity, but rather an instrumental part that develops simultaneously and is imbricated in building. Search Questions is our sisyphean effort to organize and share this knowledge while it's blossoming, fragile and unstable. By doing so, a more specific understanding, and more refined questions emerge.
