PKMN [pac-man] is an architecture office and collective based in Madrid [Spain] since 2006.
We do research into tecnology-typology-construction (applied to consolidated urban contexts, local memory and contemporary cultures); simultaneously we love exploring new architectural fields connecting citizens, identity, pedagogy, communication, game, action and cities, specially throughout strategies of participation, mediation and social innovation, and experimental active learning process.
