Out of more than 530 proposals, 50 projects were chosen due to their affinity with New European Bauhaus values and principles, and their potential to promote beauty, sustainability and social inclusion.

About ‘FURNISH XKIC’

FURNISH has created safer and more dynamic spaces in front of schools in Barcelona, as part of ‘Protegim les escoles’ (Let’s protect Schools), a project set by the city council. Its objective was to promote the use of these areas and enhance community cohesion by introducing ecological urban elements developed through a collaborative co-creation process with kids and students from universities.

These prototypes were implemented at the Antoni Brusí School by using rammed earth with modular forms and at the Entença School with wood coming from Collserola Park. Also, the project has encouraged the development of similar initiatives, and has inspired children in the use of ecological materials and the value of public space as a common good.
