EINA has been awarded with the Prize to the best educational centre in the Habitàcola 2020 contest, organized by ARQUIN-FAD, the Interdisciplinary Association of Space Design of the FAD.

The Habitácola Awards aim to disseminate the importance of creativity, social commitment and professional rigor among organizations and the public, supporting and promoting new initiatives, new approaches and new emerging talent.

Migratio (Migrant Support Units) has been created with the dual aim of ensuring the rescue of migrants and of changing the current selfish vision of the beach to turn it a truly inclusive one, comprised of installations designed specifically to help in the immediate rescue and disembarkation of these people. The device seeks to reconsider the beach not solely for its recreational facet but as something with a real and socially committed value.

Often, on small beaches, we find that the areas set aside for users are insufficient for doing a variety of activities. This is why we propose an infrastructure that makes the most of the limited space on this type of beach.

Our proposal, which lies between the limits of the artificial and the natural, is an infrastructure that confuses, that makes people think, ask what it is, what it does, what it’s doing there and how it got there. Despite being made by humans, it uses the purity of a small and simple beach, with no major external interventions, to mimic what it has created itself. We return to nature, to the essence of nature.

To do so, we have created a template of wooden trunks that at first sight are reminiscent of a forest, set out at random, self-managed. So, creating a sort of controlled chaos, one that is beautiful, simple, pleasing to the eye, integrated into its environment, that takes us away from everything surrounding us.

The Posidonia Path has been created on the island of Formentera in response to the overcrowding of the most iconic beaches on the island, using the posidonia seagrass that washes up on the beaches as the central element. The project revolves around posidonia, using it as the material to construct a variety of adaptable elements on the beaches, creating their own life cycle.
