introduction

As part of the course “New Territories” for architecture and industrial design students of the Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, the coastal village of Palomino near the Sierra Nevada se Santa Marta has been the focus of different projects that vary from organizing a football tournament or naming the streets to the building of different structures to promote cultural activities and waterless toilets. The focus is on acting as part of the research process and not only make buildings, but build the community on different levels.
