ECOFABRICA - www.ecofab.org

ECOFABRICA is a factory of ecological design, which employs a wide range of participatory research and building methods, monitoring schemes and hand-on design tools in the fields of urbanism, landscape and architectural design to engage with the regeneration of places and houses as 'living laboratories' and develop experimental methodologies for replication and up-scaling in different contexts. Now ECOFABRICA works in partnership with STUDIO POP!

ECOFABRICA enables co-working with people in the public, third and private sector, local communities, and creative professionals to seek effective, innovative, and productive design solutions for ecological, vibrant and playful habitats, public spaces and dwellings. The community will establish and consolidate new link between recycling industry, eco-designers and local communities in order to create sustainable places and dynamic cultures of co-design.

RESEARCH BY DESIGN
community-led habitat regeneration I self-building I remaking techniques I social learning

01. SYSTEMIC DESIGN
ECOFABRICA and partners have joined synergies to explore the causes, processes, and solutions to make our places liveable regarding urban regeneration, self-building, remaking techniques, and/or social learning and cohesion in order to share innovative tools and methods for strengthening the quality of ecologic housing design, productive cultural landscapes, adaptive urban planning and alternatives technologies applied in our habitats, public spaces and dwellings.

02. WE ARE ALL DESIGNERS
ECOFABRICA and partners associated mutually benefit by conducting participatory trans-disciplinary and community-based approaches including social sciences and humanities in the co-designing, co-development and co-implementation of the solutions.

03. ONE FOR ALL, ALL FOR ONE
ECOFABRICA and partners join efforts for establishing new alliances with creative universities, green industry and empowered local communities. We believe that research belongs to everybody. Our experimental research actions address nature-based and ecological solutions for inclusive habitat regeneration, including the regeneration and remediation of deprived districts, vacant lands or abandoned areas.

04. URBAN CATALYSTS
ECOFABRICA and STUDIO POP encourage social innovation, and the participation of social sciences and humanities disciplines such as urbanism, economics, sociology, geography, landscape, architecture or design studies, is particularly important to properly address these complex challenges.
