DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT
TO MOVEs is a device for promoting sport among the inhabitants of outer cities. Like a Transformer it is capable of taking on different configurations thanks to its adaptability. Wherever it is positioned, it can take advantage of the specifics of each place.
TO MOVEs hooks onto any handy elements found in a street, square or park, turning them into gathering places, facilities where play becomes training, civilization and the future.
UISP-Unione Italiana Sport Per tutti
Uisp gives everyone a chance to be active, play sports and enjoy their rights as citizens. Sportpertutti uses basic equipment and reclaims outer suburbs and poor areas.
UISP promotes integration, favouring a social campaign of inclusion through sport in schools and communities, opposing discrimination and violence, racism and homophobia. It educates to equal opportunities, the common good and participation.
NOWA (Navarra Office Walking Architecture)
