Little Maps is a project focused in sharing with younger learners an understanding about architects potential positive transforming role in the ecosystems they are a part of, developing a dynamic cartography which helps them to reflect on and improve their disciplinary knowledge and techniques, through rigorous intuitive and technical solutions for the constant and new challenges of our societies and global climate. A comprehensive effort, that integrates reflection and hands-on action; speculative, critical and pragmatical thinking; research and practice; fieldwork and online engagement; scientific method and character.
Online learning is a complement to a direct dialogue with an older learner or your peers. Learning the skills of the trade is only a complement to actually building something, so that hopefully you can build it better. Academic learning is manufactured to help you develop your critical thinking. Little Maps is aimed as a self-assesment cartography that can hopefully be useful to architects and self-builders of all ages and contexts, covering the vast ground among these three distinct poles.
