Caribbean Winter School 2012

Earlier this year I was selected to attend the 3rd Caribbean Winter School in Havana, Cuba.

One of the main reasons for my visit was to research and grasp a clearer understanding of how Havana’s urban fabric has been manipulated while under a similar socialist regime to the one Romania was subjected to prior to the 89’ revolution.

While there we also had the opportunity to get involved in a project which proposed the redesign of a local community centre aiming for the existing crafts such as pottery and metal works to be reintegrated in the every-day life of the locals. Identity, Legibility and Modularity were the key concepts that inspired our final design output.

Below are a few snaps of our final presentation.
