n’UNDO proposes a way of (un)doing re-Architecture, in the territory and the city from No-Construction, Reuse, Minimization and Dismantling. It is not about less is more, but about nothing is more, and about subtraction as means for improvement. To assess absence and pre-existence, above construction and material; to repair, clean and recover to improve the landscape, the territory and the city from the creation and conservation of its voids and silences. Work through the no-construction of non-pertinent proposals or interventions; the reuse of infrastructures and buildings; the minimization of elements of harmful impact and the dismantling of pernicious or dispensable elements.
n’UNDO bases its work in critique, debate and thinking. From that point develops its theoretical base, which leads to different trans-disciplinary practise and actions based on participation. This point of view provides, among other activities, the theoretical base dissemination from the academic field to informal learning activities. This is produced through congress, debates, round-tables and workshop complemented with the organization of competitions, conferences, urban actions and exhibitions. The professional practice includes the urban and territorial advice services, n’UNDO urban plan development and technical report elaboration. Its work has been recognized with international and national awards and mentions.
The n’UNDO approach, without dogma or doctrine, could be extended to other vital areas, inviting reflection, debate and action.
