I am passionate about:
Quatorze aims at sharing processes activated in the transformation of contemporary metropoles, acting in three complementary levels: Pedagogy, Construction and Design.
A little known fact about me is:
Quatorze developed the idea of "third places": besides professional internships, educational communities (students, scholars, professors) need to experiment with their so-called utopias out of universities, in the area of co-building common spaces.

Architecture & Co
"We synchronize energies from scholar world, civil society and state institutions"
Over the years, Quatorze has acquired the competency to organise interdisciplinary construction workshops that allow students, professionals and most of all users to reshape their living environment in terms of their own needs. Quatorze aims to combine theoretical knowledge with constructive know-how and g oes beyond utopia to design feasible dreams.
Finally, Quatorze promotes the idea of Public Space Invasion, not only to build local projects, but to empower what we call "heteropoleis".
We are an association from Paris, France. We are focused on sharing processes to transform the contemporary metropoles, acting in three complementary levels: Pedagogy, Construction and Design.
We use the participation process as a way of communication and contribution of the inhabitants of the slums, and we think that your IDEA could be an excelent tool to improve this sharing process, where women and children are usually "invisible".
Does the kit include operating instructions to adapt it to each especifical issue?
