Colectivo Aqua Alta (Independent)

The project for the Paraguayan Pavilion initiates with a participatory idea, and the desire to incorporate as many people from various fields and disciplines, at different stages of development and it’s subsequent construction. This self-management project reproduced in a series of parallel projects, initiated researches, study trips, a nomadic stage for the H20 orchestra. Throughout this process, we involved almost 300 people, including architects, professionals, professors, artists, students, both Italian and Paraguayan, as well as companies, organizations and individuals, with their input and work we were able to realize this challenge. Thanks to everyone’s effort the pavilion remained open for the six months of exposure and was dismantled in November 2014.
