Best Project of Public Space by Student

About the project
Camino» is a conceptual project based on the idea of using the tango dance as a recovery therapy intended for people affected with cancer. As we're sure this disease leaves behind a permanent stigma in every affected person and their families, the main idea is to «bring them back to normal life». The project develops a concept that combines physiotherapy, therapy for stress releasing, and socialization. To do that is proposed a composition of activities which include tango dance lessons, music, special events and to involve family participants in the process. «Camino» considers an interdisciplinary approach to the problem with this disease to provide a solution and help people in all aspects of their life. The concept draws knowledge from several academic fields and combine them to create an idea thinking across boundaries. Every detail in the project is designed from the human for the human with the desire to help society in the difficult times they have to deal with.
