Learning from Burgos
Pedagogical experience for the understanding, participation and appropriation of the plan of Burgos by its citizens. An action carried out for Ezquiaga Arquitectura, Sociedad y Territorio and the Burgos City Council.
Given the complexity and abstraction of a general urban planning plan, Aprendiendo de Burgos proposes the active participation of children from the city (between 10 and 14 years old) in the construction of an urban model of the same using tools and elements known to them ( from plants that in the future will populate the new green spaces of the city to recycled objects), through a playful act in which play and pedagogy are closely linked.
PEDAGOGICAL RESOURCES KIT:
The generation of a 1/750 scale plan of Burgos (about 24 by 12 meters) in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento is proposed, in which children will discover the situation of their houses and the emblematic buildings of the city, the means of transport and their ecological values or counter values from the pollution they generate, the new planning areas and their repercussion in the city, as well as becoming familiar with the abstraction that any city plan requires. As if we were deciphering a treasure map, which we call Burgos.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE URBAN MODEL:
Aprendiendo de Burgos trata de ser una experiencia piloto para acercar el plano y planeamiento de la ciudad a sus ciudadanos de una manera didáctica y divertida, con el objetivo de ir formando y educando a los participantes en una acción tan importante para Burgos como es su futuro planeamiento urbano.
Learning from Burgos tries to be a pilot experience by bringing the city plan and planning closer to its citizens in a didactic and fun way, with the aim of gradually training and educating participants in an action as important to Burgos as its future urban planning.
URBAN ACTION AND INTERVENTION:
The pedagogical protocol used in the pilot experience aims to become a replicable tool in order to be repeated in schools or associations in the city, so that it loses its unique character to become a new way of learning about city and its future planning.
