Areco, a River of Ideas

This project aims to motivate youth to actively participate in the design of public spaces in their
towns. It was proposed as an exercise – inspired by a successful project carried out in Madrid in 2004 – to invite all young students to upload design ideas on the Internet. The criteria of the designs were that they should illustrate how a busy public place on the Areco River should look. Unlike the Spanish proposal, which ended in a paper publication, they proposed to post the proposals on a Facebook page, called “Areco, a river of ideas”.
