The project proposes a model of understanding where the individual conceptions of space can be converted into form and constructed material, this approach allows us to think of an architecture capable of learning from its users and from the exchange of knowledge and dialogue. With this purpose we planned and implemented participatory workshops with young people, professionals and other actors involved in the Juvenile Justice program trying to understand each other’s needs.
Based on the expectations and needs identified in testimonies and dialogues collected in participatory workshops, we designed a series of objects: (3) support kits (trace, dialogue and projection) directed at the pedagogical dynamics of the restorative process from the collection and deployment of memories and testimonies in 3 levels: drawing, audio and video. Geometry was used as an excuse to explain complex concepts that are part of restorative justice based on its three pillars: recognize, repair and reintegrate.
We created a spatial intervention system that managed to make space more flexible by generate dynamic environments with different levels of darkness and sound. This guarantees the possibility of establishing a moment of individual, in couples or collective reflection through the construction of spaces defined by rails and curtains.
In collaboration with Montenegro Studio we developed a new communication and dissemination system based on the three pillars of the system: responsibility, reintegration and repair.
