 CO.BRICKS
Local production at the urban Community Garden

CO.Bricks is a set of tools that invites a productive social-creative celebration in the urban community garden. The community garden is a unique space where people meet, create, learn, and build together. Through collective creation of functional objects, which have a unique and personal “fingerprint” that changes from one garden to the other, the residents of the neighborhood can plan and build together the common public space in their living environment.
The kit comprises tools for creating bricks in traditional technique, local soil materials, and a digital catalogue with assembly instructions for various functional objects that can be built with the bricks.
CO.Bricks is a platform that facilitates the construction of a community, by fostering the connection between man and earth.
