August 11 & 12. Planting Concrete. Workshop by Miguel Prados Sánchez and Pablo Ramón Benitez
Saturday, Aug 11 + Sunday, Aug 12, 15:00-19:00
Workshop by Miguel Prados Sánchez and Pablo Ramón Benitez
The purpose of the workshop is to explore the wide range of possibilities that concrete offers and to learn about the properties that define this material and techniques for its use and manipulation. The goal is the manufacture of planters that will serve for the spatial configuration of the TIER.space. The workshop will be a group process and will seek the involvement of the participants, who will be able to propose alternative materials for the mixture as well as other uses or designs for the objects. It will be also experimental, exploring new combinations with recycled materials, creating an awareness of the things we use and dispose of, materials that surround us and that could have new unexpected uses.
