Make Works Team

The people behind Make Works

Make Works' headquarter recently moved to Barcelona in the Catalonia region, in Spain, with an aim to be a globally distributed core team which acts as the backbone infrastructure to the Platform and community betterment. The HQ supports each Make Works region, which has a local team able to understand the regions' context, challenges and empowers their local community. Through this collaborative work, we are able to co-design our pathways, co-create and share knowledge. 

We are the backbone. A small and energetic team located in the Fab Lab Barcelona at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia. Feel free to contact us here.
