MetadataShow full item record
The project at hand has as a main objective to present an architectural proposal for CASEM, a cooperative based in Monteverde that focuses on the production of art crafts. This proposal will seek to strengthen the cohesion as a community between artisans and locals in general. Monteverde’s cultural identity will be well represented by following strong values of conservation and ecology hence making the project a strong cultural focal point in the region. The draft project will be developed in an existing empty property owned by CASEM which is located in a strategic touristic point on the way to the Santa Elena Reserve, one of the most popular natural attractions in the area. In addition to generating a popular cultural attraction and strengthening the community’s identity, the new CASEM center will also serve to empower, encourage and support the group of craftswomen who are part of the cooperative by aiding in the development of their business. This will in return bring new opportunities and more growth to the cooperative and the region as a whole.
