The initiative recreation is raised and managed by a group of freshmen and encourage career academic and student activities outdoors.
Creativity and the ability to capture opportunities to improve user interaction with space, are training aspects that students Engineering Design Products (IDP) of the Technical University Federico Santa Maria developed from the first half under the bouquet of Introduction to Engineering. Led by Professor Mario Dorochesi, a group of students will not be left alone in the idea and was even more ambitious.
The group formed by Pedro Nuñez, Jose Diaz, Issis Aguirre, Carlos Acuna, Francisco Ugalde Cabrejos and Isaac had to choose between three themes for the Custom Teacher: teaching, entertainment or advertising career.
“We decided that entertainment is the area where more can take advantage of the space outside the building G, where our facilities are located. We develop an idea that went beyond the requirements of the design plan. We wanted to be more ambitious and think that if we could pull it off, “says Carlos Acuña.
The main objective of the project is to IDP patio a place of greater leisure formulating ideas that promote interpersonal development of students, without damaging the aesthetics of the university, nor the nature that surrounds them. For this, tables purpose which do not interfere with nature or with harmony rather be built.
Jose Diaz says that “we realized we needed a place to work outdoors, so we set out to design a multi-table possibilities to provide more space to IDPs”.
This group of freshmen did things orderly and fulfilled all normal channels to frame the project in reality. Carlos Acuna explains that went “to the Department of Infrastructure to propose our idea. We showed everything we wanted to do and got the necessary feedback. We got an optimal range of budget requirements for the construction and implementation. ”
For the construction of this space for recreation, these IDP students were based on two areas: “First, do not break the aesthetics that have IDP had to be something innovative. Also, do not harm nature, so we decided to join trees with a table, “says José Diaz.
Currently, they are preparing the last organizational details to begin the work, which will last about four months and in which the vast majority of the processes will be made in the workshop of IDP. Convinced that this project will be useful for Engineering in Product Design and for other college careers, the idea is also to encourage other sansanos to circulate in this area.
