ludens

ludens is a playground in which we create architectural features that enable and facilitate the shaping and appropriation of space. Although we make the pieces and arrange them on the board, it is the user who plays, moving each piece as he wishes to mold the game of life that works best for him. We look for active, participative clients who are ready to play along with us as we build space.
