El tanque is a mobile prototype, a nomadic module to be inserted in different areas of the city. The project wants to build different spaces, to adopt different combinations depending on the needs of the moment. It’s easily deployable and transportable, and supports multiple funcions, such as mobile bar, a dwelling or transportable office. Todo por la Praxis wants to create a platform or device that moves trough different neighborhoods of the city, to generate sustained processes with the actors of the space in which the tank is inserted, an appropriation of urban public space. This artifact will host artistic, cultural, social and productive activities. El tanque is designed with the intenction to be replicated by other groups, inviting to appropriate, implement and improve the project. In fact will be public an assembly manual, accessible by those who wants to build a similar one.
