We promote human centered education and design, we adopt body driven participatory processes. We work through the four connected and scalable steps of awakening, designing, building and inhabiting.
Our body is a source of information and intelligence, an instrument of experience to be aware of our own and environment needs.
We work through participatory design and construction processes organised into interconnected and scalable phases inspired by the following methodologies:
AWARENESS THROUGH THE BODY
ATB started in July 1992 in the schools of Auroville as a programme to help children and adults increase their capacity for attention, concentration and relaxation, and to enhance their ability for self awareness and their sense of responsibility. Using their senses in a more complete way individuals will be able to better manage their mind and emotions. Through the body they will awaken the consciousness of the entire being and all the parts that form it.
A human-centred education where individuals are active protagonists of their learning process, according to their own needs and rhythms. They learn through playing and through a singular or collective trial and error method. The guide’s role is to provide a rich and safe environment facilitating participants’ activities. The whole community is responsible for education.
DESIGN BY DOING
The design process continues at the construction site. The building process is a chance to enrich the project, opening unexpected opportunities, offering ideas and design solutions.
