This project is a reflection on the “Patios”, materialized through the creation of a seating system. With them, the character of close coexistence between people is reinterpreted, where tradition is revived in a common delimited space.

The “Patios” is a traditional type of building in Córdoba (Andalucía). Due to a hot, dry climate, homes in Córdoba were built with a central patio even back in the days of the Romans. This tradition was continued by the Moors and persists in many homes even today. Filling the central patio with plants and water features has always been a way to keep local homes cool. It was a place of encounter, coexistence, work, and culture, where the daily life of families was articulated through the close fraternity of the women who lived there. Here, several generations of women and children interacted, shared work, leisure, and orally passed on their knowledge.

The structure – manufactured in MDF – corresponds to the space that defines the seating area. The seat, on the other hand, wants to be the witness of the tradition, being a piece handmade in enea by local artisans.
