Andrés Jaque / Oficina de Innovación Política. Architects (Spain) and the think tank linked to the Political Innovation Office explore the role architecture plays in building societies. They administer the political quality brand Arquitectura Parlamento (Parliament Architecture) and design political transparency plans; urban planning based on the word of mouth or social assemblies based on controversy, among others.

Basurama. Focuses its action area in productive processes, the waste such processes generate and the creative possibilities brought about by this contemporary circumstance. It aims to study phenomena that are part of the massive production of real and virtual rubbish in the consumer society, providing new views that act as generators of thoughts and attitudes.

Ludotek. Ludotek is a chronotopic, social and physical research lab. Ludotek proposes a critical exploration related to the leisure activities of the contemporary individual. Ludotek researches children's activities, produces tests with children based on video, ludograms, documents and play with children without providing any type of education.

WUNDERKAMMER (bblab / G+W gálvez-wieczorek / MISC). Team made up of three studios that together develop projects within the field of architecture, urban planning, landscaping, design and teaching. Their collaboration does not fit into a standard studio model, but rather as a laboratory that accommodates a constant exchange of ideas and experiences.

Javier Duero. Is an independent curator and cultural producer. He has developed projects and been the curator of exhibitions in different institutions and centres of national and international art. Currently he directs a research group on the cultural tissue of the region of Madrid for the CA2M in Móstoles. He is a member of the Pensart Cultura association.
