Leoncio Lopez-Ocon's curator insight, September 17, 2013 5:54 PM

Casi todos sus miembros son arquitectos de formación, pero sus inquietudes lo abarcan todo. Se suelen definir como artistas, entendiendo el arte como "vía al conocimiento". Así, lo que los define no es lo que hacen sino cómo lo hacen: hundiendo el brazo en la basura hasta el codo. Su actividad investigadora, creadora y divulgadora se centra en los desechos y en los procesos productivos de nuestra sociedad de consumo que los generan.

Son considerados expertos internacionales en este modo de reutilizar los residuos, dándoles un nuevo uso creativo que genera tejido social. Una de sus líneas de actuación más longevas y conocidas es RUS (Residuos Urbanos Sólidos), que han paseado por medio mundo.
