VIDEO | Expertization Workshop in Murcia

We spent 4 days from April 9 to 12, in a workshop in Centro Parraga, Murcia with Moritz Waldemeyer and Yvonne Laurisen as guest stars, and teachers from Madrid Architecture School Paula Montoya, Izaskun Chinchilla, Jose Luis Vallejo and Andrés Perea.

The point was to get there with some stuff we were already working on in class, and Moritz and Yvonne would help us to become experts in whatever we wanted, in a couple of days. At least, that was the initial plan, what they called "Expertization".

Our team named Noise Reduction was formed by: Elena Alvarez, Enrique Bayarri, Miguel BeloquiIoannes Busca, Silvia Echeverria, Guillermo Fernandez & Raul Nieves. After having a lot of fun playing with everything that everyone had in mind, buying weird stuff and mixing it all together, we finally end up creating a project were a building facade was supposed to respond to the noise produced in the streets.

The process, where so many new ideas emerged, has been the most rewarding part of the workshop. It's  hard to explain the experience. I think we all had a great time. It's hard can imagine a better environment to create crazy weird stuff.
