Yesterday, the day of the winter solstice, we closed the first part of the academic year participating in the CoLAB final JURY at ETSAM. The RIBOT Unit, with Almudena leading and with Diego García Setién, Enrique Espinosa, Ignacio Borrego, Begoña de Abajo and Gaizka Altuna, has been working in a fascinating process of collaboration and creativity in the abandoned Packard building in Detroit. It was a pleasure to share with all of them and the students their final revision… Ecology, resilience, social dynamics, community, thermodynamics and inclusive environments were some of the key words and concepts… Thank you for inviting us to participate!
