Engaging with Territories
Constructlab's portfolio is the sum of many projects. They often involve negotiations with landscapes and their inhabitants, teams working at different scales, local regulations, working conditions, materials, partners and resources. The combination of these elements give life to what we sometimes call a ‘territory’ and/or a ‘community’. Our practice aims to make them more visible, accessible, understandable in different ways and not to overshadow their presence with construction. To achieve this, we create new narratives and create infrastructures and designs that amplify low voices and strengthen alliances. While sharing our tools and cultivating permeability and horizontality rather than efficiency, we are learning from indigenous communities, their cosmovisions and cosmopolitics. And through this process, we are also learning among ourselves, through moments of self-reflection and resonance.
