TFM: COMMUNITY ACTIVATION UNITS are modular elements that aim to empower public space dynamics that are specific to the El Calvario community (Venezuela), based on collective construction and the comprehension of the space. The units are made exclusively of Caribbean pine planks, joined together with bars and nuts, using basic carpentry practices. The wooden planks are assembled with rails to guarantee easy stacking and configuration of the units. The result was the construction of 20 units within a period of 6 weeks.
Sven Methling, Andrea Stanko and Diego Gil Ogliastri were the professors at SIMÓN BOLÍVAR UNIVERSITY responsible for giving the Workshop on Construction with Wood: Activation Units, in Venezuela in 2015.
