To construct the public space must be public, so public and clear matter as the language that we speak. ” Saying and fact ” considers a collaborative process with the neighborhood of New Pompeii for co – designing the activation of his public space of a participative way using as I pretext the game, the language and the iconography of the own name for the construction of a system dotacional transformable with the triple scale of the identity and iconicity of the word (Pompeii), of playful (scrabble) and of the program of public use (furniture – transformer).

The workshop develops in three phases: 1. Participation, diffusion. 2. I Co-design magnificent pupil: from the identity to the object .3. Production of prototype.
The workshop´s participants will develop and materialize a final prototype that will check three conditions: it will be an urban sign of big dimensions that will materialize of form icónica the name of the neighborhood, will be a physical and reconfigurable alphabet that will allow to play at constructing new words, will be an equipment of public contained and drop-down use from every letter or set of letters, something like if the sign of Hollywood was spreading out to constitute a sets of filming
