Curatorial team: Alina del Castillo, Raúl Vallés, Luis Octavio de Faria e Silva, Ruben Otero.
The exhibition «Cooperativas Habitacionais no Uruguai. Meio Século de Experiências» which was presented at the Casa Brasileira Museum, shows the results of the documentation work and research carried out by the “Permanent Housing Unit” of the School of Architecture, Udelar, in Montevideo, Uruguay and the Escola da Cidade of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
It introduces 21 cases of cooperativism through photographs, plans, models and videos. Fab Lab MVD participated in the realization -through use of 3D printing – of most of the models exposed there.
The exhibition was subsequently set up at the Casona Mauá (2015); at the School of Architecture, Udelar (2015); at the Construction Fair in Montevideo (2015); in Quito (2016). Currently the pieces of the sample are being preserved with the possibility of being shown again in the future.
