ANDORRA CULTURAL HERITAGE

The goal of the project is to find a new way to valorize Cultural Heritage as a potential for tourists and citizens and put the culture as the foundation of the transformation and innovation process. Cultural heritage is the legacy of our ancestors. Customs, traditions, places, objects, values are passed on from generation to generation. Unfortunately, many are lost on the way. This project wants to stress the importance of the cultural heritage, how it defines ourselves and the duty of not only preserve it but also recover it.

DRONES PATTERNS AND FLOWS
