QUE PLANCHA TU BOLSA
The system was born as a strategy to intervene the Subercaseaux Palace as the headquarters of the Puerto de Ideas Festival. It was sought to develop a strategy that would involve the neighborhood community in its construction and the recovery of the Palace. Together with the activation of this disused historic building (it was set on fire in 2007), the intervention sought to transform garbage into value by inviting citizens to reflect and take action from the re-use of waste and subsequent co-production of a cover of more than 10,000 ironed plastic bags. A network type roof system was designed based on the union of plastic bag components. The union of bags was proposed by melting the material from the ironing thus avoiding extra joining elements such as glue or square brackets.
