The project has been carried out in Campo de la Cebada, in the central district of Madrid, on a 5000 square meter vacant site which some local collectives can use for temporary activity with a cession time of one year. Todo por la Praxis has been involved in this process, and they started rehabilitate the place from June 2011 with the creation of a self-managed sport center; some of the previous projects by TXP were about the temporary activation of vacant lots with sport facilities. The sport center is composed mainly by a scaffolding structures and a container, all working as office, storage room, a basketball court and a summer cinema. All these functions create a meeting point, increasing the possibility to create other activities, like the autoconstruction workshop set up in 2012 with Basurama and Paisaje Transversal.
