Your Feedback on ECOWEEK 2012 in Rome

'When I signed up I did not quite know what to expect. I thought we would design a building just like in school. But the workshop was different, we designed, we built it and then the community came! It was a real surprise and quite amazing how it all came together!'

'We started building and marking the street and people were coming up to us asking what we were doing - why were we painting the pavement. When we explained to them, they were very happy. A neighbor gave us electricity and helped us find wood. Children came and wanted to help paint.'

'We really learned that with very few resources we can add value to the city!'

'What attracted me to ECOWEEK was the opportunity to design out of the usual university courses and environmental issues.'

'ECOWEEK is like a laboratory of design, where students can get an actual idea of practice of what is the reality of Architeture. ECOWEEK should be known to all architectural university programs!'

'I really liked the idea of collaboration with professionals; also the ecological aspects of the projects and the practical phase of the workshops.'

'ECOWEEK was a great opportunity!'

'I was attracted to ECOWEEK by the theme of sustainability and the fact that it is a truly international workshop!'

'ECOWEEK in Rome was perfect!'
