The Grigri of the Passatge Trullás
With HANGAR + BAU (UVIC) + Taula Eix Pere IV
The magic of Grigri lies, in part, in the fact of sharing with others a process of collaborative imagination, creation and construction. In that collaboration, knowledge, ways of doing and visions are exchanged about the city, its common spaces and what it is that we believe takes care of and protects us as inhabitants of those spaces.
But for that exchange to take place, as Simón Njami said in the seminar that took place within the framework of the October 2017 workshop in Madrid, there is a need for recognition of the other: only when we recognize others as equals, as a same, we can welcome and apprehend all that it can offer us. And vice versa. At that moment is when the magic of Grigri begins to activate.
Therefore, although the construction workshop began on November 2 in Hangar, the Grigri of the Passatge Trullàs was actually launched much earlier, almost a year earlier, with the first conversations we had with the neighbors of the Taula del Eix Pere IV to explain our project and explore the possibilities of collaboration.
Playful and inter-generational benches. Mobile, able to give light, interactive and self-sufficient through the incorporation of led lighting powered by self-produced solar panels and installed in the benches. They can be combined in a thousand ways to adapt to the changing needs of neighbors and of this space in transformation.
