ABLM architects develops its strategies from a multidisciplinary platform, proposing answers to the problems offered by contemporaneity. Within the collective there are different research initiatives such as the LabIO group [Laboratory of Optimistic Initiatives] that generates proposals for resolving conflicts from the juxtaposition of architecture, planning and sociology. Another way of research is the search for new proposals in the world of children and youth, within teaching and residential programs, opening possibilities and relationships between users.
