Fundación Compartir, Cucunubá, Colombia

The first DEED trip to Colombia, a collaboration with the Universidad de los Andes’s Department of Design, which took the form of a feasibility study focused on a possible expansion to Bogotá and its surrounding region.  We spent full days at the university, meeting design students and faculty; took a trip to Cucunubá to meet a community of wool weavers; and held a debriefing and brainstorming session at the end of the week.
