changing the village
working with the plane
The aim of ‘A Vila da Mañá’ is to change the model of town or city, we believe that another one can be possible. This is achieved through the protagonist participation of local children and adolescents who, by working with fundamental concepts through tactical urban planning actions, become active citizens capable of transforming their spaces.
In this case, the landscape is worked on, looking for the interaction between the built, the more natural and the intermediate territories. Understanding how people build and modify the landscape and how we inhabit it, and it builds us and our identity.
With all this, a colourful mural is created thanks to the coloured geotextile envelopes, in which earth, water and the pumps are introduced, and which will gradually be complemented by the green of the plants born, prepared by themselves.
Color your village
The city/town we are working in has become a playground, an experimental laboratory in which children and teenagers can act from a new point of view.
