About us

The dawoffice architecture studio created foundawtion in June 2014. For the studio and all its members, from the beginning it was conceived as both a learning and a knowledge journey. A journey that, gradually, has been extended to every volunteer that has been involved in the different projects of the foundation.

Foundawtion is a not-for-profit organisation with the social purpose of ‘working in the framework of cooperation, in helping development and in social action, providing assistance in matters relating to construction, physical, environmental and social infrastructure, housing, the environment, urban planning, education, design and architecture.’

Its main objectives are:

  • To complete projects that meet architectural needs in less-favoured economic areas.
  • To complete projects that meet design needs at social level.
  • To share knowledge and generate educational projects in areas where the foundation operates
  • To invigorate communities and create different futures from the spheres of architectural intervention, design and education.
  • To generate positive value changes in the society, resulting from the means provided by architecture, design and education.

The Foundawtion board members are David García, architect and founding trustee, Pepi de Boissieu, institutional relationships, Luis García, lawyer, Carmen Revilla, president and media officer, Lluís Morón, resources and logistics, Marc Morro, furniture design, and Javi Royo, head of education.

Values

The projects we develop integrate not only architecture and construction, but also education or any social project related to design. These are our values:

Quality
Quality is our main goal in all our endeavours. It has been a defining feature of the project: the demand for quality, not only in architecture and design, but also in educational projects.

Respect and Local Integration
Understanding the reality of the place where action is taken and involving the local community in the architectural, design or educational endeavours.

Support
Providing material support for the actions undertaken in the community where we implement our projects.

Exchange
Promoting an exchange of experiences and cultures between the place where we come from and the place where we operate (regarding African projects, between Africa and Europe). Believing that this is a two-way experience, both for the volunteers that travel to the areas where we work, and for the local people in the project area.

Communication
Establishing two-way lines of communication regarding project development.

Equality
Equality at all levels is one of our values. Above all, with regards to equal opportunities. We strive so that the female communities in the countries where we operate have a greater role, more independence and empowerment.

Development
The purpose of all the Foundawtion operations is to develop the community as a whole, paying special attention to the most vulnerable in these communities (e.g., children and women).

The ‘calling’ has also penetrated dozens of friends that have left their jobs to travel to Senegal or cooperate with us from here and do their bit working on our projects.

Thank you to you all.

Gracias a todos ellos.
