UCJC-CEPT Winter School Workshop in India: ´TIMBER PROTOTYPES´

The UCJC-CEPT Winter School Workshop Timber Prototyping is a workshop that seeks to densify the transference of art, knowledge and material culture through the construction of an experimental pavilion by means of interdisciplinary and international collaboration.

One of the main advantages of the experimentation and the incorporation of an international group formed by students of the UCJC in Madrid and the CEPT in Ahmedabad is that it will bring the construction of the pavilion to an end within a timespan of two weeks by means of the instalment of an international workshop that will end with the finalization of the pavilion, coinciding with the inauguration of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale.
