The Process

Design Method with Coordination: The first discussions were with the coordination of the three associations through an “executive meeting” based on collective decisions, several meetings with CAO & CRE, and coordination with each association. As support material AT used plans, presentations and models. The discussions resulted in different project proposals for each association.

Project Method with Families: From suggestions from the coordinators considering possibilities and limitations of the project, the proposals were presented. It took several meetings so that new considerations could be discussed and incorporated into the final proposal. Presentations, models, and 3D images were used.

Task Force: Each family participates with two days per month. The tasks do not involve specialization and are designed with the AT and the commission of work coordinators. They contribute to the management of work related to the day-to-day construction site, for example: waste management, work safety, and the environment.

Issues Raised by Families: More parking; balcony placement; extra rooms; trade areas; children's play areas
