n'UNDO is an attitude, intervening in territory and the city from a position of No Construction, Minimization, Reuse and Dismantlement. Its work starts with critique, discussion and reflection, from which develops a theoretical foundation for participatory actions. The action of not doing is proposed. It is not a question of less is more, but rather if nothing can be more. Holding absence and the preexisting above construction , n’UNDO proposes recovering territory maintaining its silences.

Re-architecture of the territory and the city from the substraction and renouncement: No Construction, Minimization, Reuse and Dismantlement

-The aim of architecture is to improve people’s lives and emphasize territory with it’s presence.
-To face up the over-exploitation and territorial deterioration, a way of acting it is proposed: no construction, reuse, minimization and dismantlement.
-Architecture and urban planning do not only imply building, but also repair and recovery.
-All territory is landscape and must be valued and respected since it is fundamental for development of life.
-All intervention must be reached through consensus under social, environmental, economic, cultural and ethical criteria.
-The critique of pernicious performances in territory is needed for promoting debate and reaction.
-Many of the elements that pollutes the territory are reversible, can be minimized, reused or dismantled; actions that have to be developed from the architectonic discipline.
-It is possible to build more and better from reduction. The subtraction and renouncement are alternatives of pertinent interventions.



Interventions from subtraction does not limit to any scale.

ACTIONS are proposed as a critic result of the analysis, to make urban problematics visible.

Through subtraction it is possible to INTERVENE in consolidated environments unveiling new possibilities.

The model REPORTS bollards as a paradigm of excess and pollution in the urban public space. Each pin is a bollard, each bollard oscillates between 200-400 euros, each bollard takes up – render useless 0.32 m2 of public space. It's easy to add up; how much money costs us this usurpation of the citizen's space?

The map is proposed as an ANALYSIS tool, a space for the encounter and an incentive for reflection. Searching the opportunity in the existent as an alternative to the property system of the new construction.
