Bambini Ovunque Research Presentation in CCB (Belém Cultural Center), Lisboa, 2023
The research was conducted by children aged 10-14 as part of the Architectural Thinking School educational program. Students explored the past and present of street games and then develop their own games. The outcome of the research will be the creation of a catalog of new street games called 'BAMBINI OVUNQUE: Game Collection for Venice Biennale 2024. New Trends.' These games can be played with their designers during the BAMBINI OVUNQUE happening at the Biennale's opening on April 17th.
