Boxing Boxes

Boxing, both as a tool of self-discipline and control of violence, is part of the civilizing
process. Boxing Boxes seeks the materialization of one year of architectural research that uses a new gym scheme to place this sport as a valuable instrument of spatial and civic activation in marginalized areas. Boxing requires the minimum material, perhaps because of the fact that its practice implies great self-control, physical and mental training, factors that help solve society’s needs for violence and offer an alternative to the lethargic and individualistic infrastructure of our towns and cities.
