Living Lab Panama

(2018)

participatory workshop (intership) 

During my architectural internship at El Equipo Mazzanti + Horizontal, I had the opportunity to participate on the design and logistics for planning a living laboratory that generated scenarios in which the community, designers and institutions discussed the future of the Panama's Coastline.

 

The team proposed activities based on the past, the present and the future.

Time Capsules: we designed a device made with recycled bottles that collected environmental information about air quality, tides and temperature.

Future activity: We design classes based on urban gardens using recycled materials. Beyond the objects, the activity fostered discussion about the role of the community for the preservation of the coast.
