Socially engaged art project developed in a neighbourhood of illegal construction in Amadora, on the outskirts of Lisbon, specifically the Bairro do Alto da Cova da Moura. The social initiative was created and boosted by a local association called Moinho da Juventude, which has as its primary objective the qualification of young adults so that they are better prepared to respond to possible job opportunities or to create their business initiatives. In the first phase, the participants collaborated to develop a co-design project that resulted in a proposal to build a multipurpose wooden structure in one of the main neighbourhood squares, whose construction was not allowed. In the second phase, other ideas were developed, which led to the construction of three urban furniture pieces.
