1. NEXT.cc Biomimicry Workshop


    from NEXT.cc / Added

    One School. One old building. One new building. One biomimicry workshop: Students at Escuela Verde in Milwaukee participate in Next.cc’s biomimicry workshop. Through a collaborative approach, students explore how natural principles can inform their own learning environment. How can patterns in nature influence renovation designs that respond to the school culture, technological needs, and learning advisory aspirations? By the end of the day, students created innovative digital and physical models for learning spaces and proposed a new green roof. Through hands-on, group activities, students accessed the tools and knowledge of design participation and empowered 21st century design methods in re-imagining new ways of learning and making.

      Propuesta de renovación urbana en Calle Uruguay y Vía Argentina en Ciudad de Panamá, por Forza Creativa. La zona de la Calle Uruguay y la Vía Argentina son los puntos establecidos por la Alcaldía como los primeros escenarios de la futura rehabilitación urbana de la Ciudad de Panamá. La esperanza de Forza Creativa es que este proyecto sea sólo el principio de una gran rehabilitación urbana que trascienda los limites definidos por el pliego. Una ciudad no esta hecha de barrios aislados; esta hecha de barrios interconectados por transporte colectivo, ciclovías, y aceras adecuadas. Soñamos con poder caminar o montar bicicleta (digna y convenientemente) a través de toda la ciudad. Soñamos con una ciudad donde todos, independientemente de clase social o edad, queramos vivir y trabajar. Soñamos con el día en que la rehabilitación de la Vía Argentina y la Calle Uruguay se convierta en catalista y fuente de optimismo para todo Panamá. Forza Creativa es un estudio panameño de arquitectos integrando por gente que vive, conoce y trabaja en la zona de Bella Vista, Ciudad de Panama. El despacho fue fundado en el 2007 por Eduardo Quintero y Annamaria Zampogna, y es conformado por un grupo de polifacéticos profesionales con talento excepcional. Como equipo, Forza Creativa cuenta con experiencia académica y profesional de más de 7 años combinada cubriendo 4 continentes.
